Outside Reading Blog #1

My outside reading book is "Alone Against the Atlantic" by Gerry Speiss. In this book so far, Gerry has taken his homemade boat, Yankee Girl onto White Bear Lake in the middle of an intense thunder storm. But his wife Sally was worried once she realized that Gerry was out on the lake alone in the storm. So, she hopped in her car and circled the lake numerous times until she saw Yankee Girl tipped over by the dock!

Sally ran to the dock, fearing the worst, but Gerry popped his head right up out of the cabin and asked, "What's the matter?" Sally then gave him a large hug and finished helping him adjust the ballast of the boat.

In the back of his head, Gerry did adress the possibility of his ultimate goal: sailing Yankee Girl alone across the Atlantic...
