The Amazing Adventures of Captain Don by Donna Kalez



This book “The Amazing Adventures of Captain Don” is the first in a series of entertaining stories. I can only hope it will bring you and your family as much joy as it has me to write. They always say write what you know and I know about the amazing adventures my family has experienced out in the waters of Orange County since the late 1950’s. The story’s main character Captain Don is based on my father Don Hansen, founder of Dana Wharf and originator of Whale Watching in Orance County. This book and series is dedicated to him – a wonderful and generous man!
