Rotterdam Reflections: Tales from a Dutch harbour and other stories
 
Product Description:
When writing memoirs, there are inevitably stories that can't be included, but are still fondly remembered. This is a short companion volume of recollections and tales from times and periods not covered by my Watery Ways and Harbour Ways memoirs. It is largely drawn from narrative posts I have written for my blog with some editing and embellishments. There are also some additional short pieces related to my life and work here in the Netherlands that were also taken from my blog. These are specifically posts that became very popular at the time they were published.
