After a 12 day passage, I never knew that concrete could move soooo much! That lasted for 3 days...the plane ride home from St. Thomas was worse...talk about lavatory claustrophobia

I always found it difficult to get used to noise again after being on the ocean for days. Especially if you are going through an airport to get back home.

Cut off from the land that bore us, betrayed by the land we find, where the brightest have gone before us and the dullest remain behind, .......but stand to your glasses, steady,.......tis all we have left to prize, raise a cup to the dead already, hurrah for the next that dies

That's called sea-legs; and it's the opposite of being seasick. Your body adjusted to the motion of the boat to help your perceived environment feel and appear more stable; and once ashore that compensation is still working but the earth does not move as the boat did.

Well, technically, your bed was aground... at least if you live in a terrestrial home.

You know what the first rule of sailing is? ...Love. You can learn all the math in the 'verse, but you take
a boat to the sea you don't love, she'll shake you off just as sure as the turning of the worlds. Love keeps
her going when she oughta fall down, tells you she's hurting 'fore she keens. Makes her a home.

I think singlehanders have a harder time adjusting because sleep is such an issue. I remember waking up startled just because I had slept longer than the alotted time, this would go on for days.
I live aboard now and sleeping on land makes for a bad night, too quiet and still, I don't know how those land dwellers do it .

I haven't cruised yet but I lived aboard for a couple years on a mooring. I haven't slept well on land since. It's been 10 years. I need another boat.

After longterm cruising these effects are more likely to dimenish. My wife and I have been living aboard for 38 years and our current time "out" began in 2002. We leave the boat at times for a few days ashore, but those types of responses posted above don't happen for us. It does sound exciting though. Maybe we're missing a thrill! 'take care and joy, Aythya crew
