Gargett.Com is a site put together by John Gargett of Bellingham, Washington, United States, for the Gargett family. The Gargett’s seem to be all over the world, particularly in the UK, Australia and here in the US. If you would like to connect, please send me a note.
On my side of the Gargett family, the sea is very important. My paturnal grandmother’s maiden name was Emily Slocum. She is a direct relative of Joshua Slocum, the first man to sail alone around the world so I guess you can say that sailing, yachting and the oceans have always held interest for me. That is why I joined the Bellingham Yacht Club. And to make a long story short, my wife and I put on a cruise for the Bellingham Yacht Club every year to Poets Cove in British Columbia, Canada. Well, last September during our cruise we kind of made up a story about piracy. As a result, and after giving it no real thought, I decided to write an ebook called the Pirates of Poets Cove. I would publish a chapter a month until our cruise next September where we would act out the final Chapter in a Dinner Theater. Anyway, some friends said I should post it here so if you want to follow along each month, feel free to read a story from someone who has never written a book – The Pirates of Poets Cove.
