One of those days

One of those days

Do you ever have one of those days where just nothing goes right? Yeah. Us too. We are at the end of our ropes lately. It’s not the smallness of the boat, it’s not even the huge spiders covering the docks. It’s the flies. Billions […]

Boat “Adventures”: Part 3

Boat “Adventures”: Part 3

And now, back to your regularly scheduled programming

I know I haven’t posted a new post in a while. Getting settled in has taken a lot more time and effort than I previously anticipated. And we still aren’t fully settled. Some things still haven’t found a set place on board, which means a […]

Rough Seas

The last couple of days have been rough. Actually, they have been downright hellish. So awful that’s it’s hard to even write it out cause I get frustrated with it all over again. But we learned some lessons. Always learning. Lesson 1. Leash the dog […]

We did it!!

We are officially living on board! It’s been a CRAZY weekend. A whirlwind of cleaning and loading cars of stuff, and feeling overwhelmed with the amount of garbage that we had accumulated. But we did it! The first few hours aboard looked like a bomb […]
