A Sea Gypsy Port Story
We stumbled upon this blog while browsing through Sail Magazine in the October 2013 issue. Ray Jason writes about his adventures as a sea gypsy on TheSeaGypsyPhilosopher.blogspot.com. We liked this story so we re-posted it for you here. Let us know what you think, would you like to be a sea gypsy?

As the old man’s cayuco nudged up alongside AVENTURA, I sensed that there was something different about him this morning, but I couldn’t quite place what it was. He greeted me with a cheerful, “Hola, Capitan Ramon” which made me chuckle as I recalled our first encounter from a few months ago. At that time his severe hearing problems had led to a funny exchange as I struggled to convince him that I was not “Capitan Rainbow” or Capitan Rambo.”
