I wanted to shake up my life and go sailing (or learn on the job, so-to-speak) so headed to Florida to crew on a catamaran. This is about how it went or, rather, didn't - and my life since. Hopefully it will lead to a catamaran on the clear aqua blue waters of the Caribbean Sea, watching the sunset, a coconut rum and coke in hand. You must START AT THE BEGINNING of the blog, April 2009, to get the whole story...

A few months back I worked hard to put together an Amazon Store of my favourite things. It's called Sandra's Selections, and all the things on it are really items I own or just love - kind of my version of Oprah's favourite things!! I am an avid reader and I have many much loved books on there, and I can heartily attest to any one of them becoming a much loved book for the avid reader in your life. I have a dear friend (hi Erna!) who regularly pulls out her little purse sized notepad and jots down books I recommend and I don't think she's been disappointed yet.

There are movies I love, music I love, sailing and travel items I wouldn't be without, as well as a host of other goodies. So go take a look and see if you can't find perfect gift there for someone you'd love to surprise. And if you purchase through my store, I get a teeny tiny commission that will go towards my future adventures with which to entertain you! So it's kind of win-win all around!

If you have any questions about any of the items, just use the comment form on here and I will post a reply.

All orders over $25 available for FREE Super Saving Shipping.


  1. Very nice indeed I’ll probably download it. Thanks

  2. It isn't a download, it's just a link at the bottom of each of my blog pages or, I put a hyper link in this post. Just click on the words 'Sandra's Selections' in the second sentence.

    I have added more things to the store since this post was created.

Here's my Amazon Store called Sandra's Selections, full of my favourite things and constantly updating it as I discover more fav's. It's more for fun than anything as I've never made a cent off of it.
