About

Hello! I’m Charley; sailor, mother and lover of the outdoors. I was born and bred in Cornwall, UK and now live in Sydney, Australia with my husband, two little girls and my faithful Labrador Rhubarb. Although a lover of all things sail powered, I have recently developed a deep appreciation of the humble tinny. A little Aussie icon that is the ideal means of transport to a less stressful life.
In this blog, inspired by the Arthur Ransome book of the same name, I write about the things I love; putting around the inshore coastline in my tinny with the kids, picnicking, wildlife, photography, ideas for encouraging children into the outdoors, and other nautical flotsam and jetsam that might appeal if you’re a fan of messing about in boats. After all as Isak Dinesen puts it; “The cure for anything is salt water – sweat, tears, or the sea”
Thanks for dropping anchor
