Herman Melville (who ought to know) wrote that whenever he became grouchy, it was time to go to sea.  I agree.  As a child, I played along the rocky shores of Maine, New Brunswick, and Nova Scotia.  I’ve since fallen in love with the coastline of the Pacific Northwest: Oregon’s sea cliffs, the wilderness coast of the Olympic Peninsula, the inlets and islands of British Columbia, and the tidewater glaciers of Alaska.  Every summer, I pull out nautical charts to plot my next trip.  Every time, I’m faced with more coastline than I could ever explore in ten lifetimes.
