This month, for our Ocracoke Newsletter, I reprinted an article I wrote 33 years ago (!) about sailing aboard the schooner Mary E. I thought it was worth trying to get published, so I was going to send it to one of our local Outer Banks newspapers. But then I thought, what the heck, and I submitted it to the Washington Post. Imagine my surprise when I received a tear sheet (with my byline) and a check for $50.00.
I hope you enjoy it. You can read it here: http://www.villagecraftsmen.com/news092109.htm.
