Susea Spray and her husband don’t have a brick – and – mortar house. Instead, their homes are two old ocean – going sailing boats.
After four years spent preparing their very own Big Blue Boat, they departed Adelaide, South Australia in 2013.
In her, they have sailed three oceans, seen amazing animals, and visited incredible places. The Big Blue Boat now lives in Europe. Northern hemisphere summers find them continuing their journey through the rivers and canals of Europe.
Susea and her husband are now readying their next old sailing boat in preparation for sailing through Asia and the Pacific.
A retired classroom teacher and professional photographer, the sailing journey has been the catalyst enabling Susea to at last finding her writing voice.
An avid reader who has always written in one form or another, Susea is now sharing her love of language and sea with young and old through the eyes of a Big Blue Boat and a young girl, the Captain. Her first book, ‘A Big Blue Boat’, a cumulative tale introduces the two and is coming soon.
In her spare time, Susea loves to read, research, write, cook, photograph, quilt, walk and work on the Susea Spray and Gratis Australis blogs.
