Amazon among the icebergs

That's our only child amidships, with a young Brit steering. The dinghy is Amazon, so called for the Swallows and Amazons series beloved of her daughters. It is 13 feet long, designed by a South African, welded up from aluminum in our garage by our son-in-law, and powered by a second-hand sail from our neighbor Ned McIntosh (who prefers wooden boats). Blue skies! -- Dan Ford
