Ever wonder what it feels like to be a Mariner in the modern world we live in; what 's it like to be away on a vast ocean?
To see the sea transition from glass to a raging tempest; to work on the sea for months at a time; then transition to home for months of spending time with friends and family, pursuing hobbies, and traveling - just to start all over again.
This book encompasses the feelings of "those" days. With observations and original photos.
I hope that you enjoy it and share it with friends and family; sailors, and landlubbers alike.
A few sample pages are in the cover art.
Wishing you fair winds and following seas,
J. E. P. Burton
"As someone who has never traveled on the open sea, Life at Sea: Observations of a Modern Mariner gave an insight into life at sea. From the beauty of the ocean, to the sorrow of missing family and friends, it paints a clear picture in your mind. It seems to be a bit of a tug-of-war, loving being at sea but missing those on land when you go. For anyone interested in learning more about mariner's of this day and age, Life at Sea: Observations of a Modern Mariner is a good book to visit." - Christine Newman
