Full Circle with Authors Ruth and Buddy Ellison

Ruth and Buddy Ellison, authors of Full Circle, A 12 Year Journey Sailing Around The World, will visit the Oceanside Public Library’s Civic Center Library Foundation Room, at 330 North Coast Highway, on Saturday, June 7 at 1:00 p.m.., with a program about their expedition around the world on the sailboat Annapurna. Both decided to live their dream and go where the winds would take them. With open ended plans and the mantra of “we’ve got no plan and we’re sticking to it” to live by, they sailed out of San Francisco Bay in September 1996 and kept on going until they circled the entire globe and sailed back into Acapulco in April 2007. Their book is a compilation of a diary, journal, and countless letters back home. They wrote in the book “our new address was the world wherever we happened to be. If we liked where we were, we stayed, if not, we left. The reality was we liked everywhere, all 56 countries.” If you like the adventure, you will enjoy the program and useful travel tips.

Ruth and Buddy Ellison currently live in Bonsall, north of San Diego. Their book will be available for purchase and signing. The program is free and open to the public.
