It's hard reading your post and having that rat stare at me behind those shades.

We went snorkeling in ST John in the rain last year, water was warmer than the air and we never wanted to get out

Life's to short to re-watch movies. :-)
I'm not re-watching, they're all new. Most of them are new. Ok, some of them are new.

And what are you talking about, you're going to have a tv on your boat too. It's already been decided.

Re: What do you do on a rainy day in paradise?

Thus far movies havn't made it on board. We have the capability but somehow not the desire. Maybe that will change in time.

Other than that rainy days are for sitting and watching the rain fall, maybe the odd nap, eating and reading.

hmmm ... replace watching the rain fall with the occasional swm and that's what we do on sunny days ....

Serendipitous, There's something I just don't understand. The photo you posted is great, a drop-dead, gorgeous young lady in the arms of a young man. And you want to watch movies. Wow! Things have really changed since I was a young man.

Cheers,

Gary

Well, you can only stay in bed for so long after you have to move on to other activities.

But now I'm curious to hear about YOUR days as a young man! (spare some of the details though)

We're still on the hard at the moment, so no water to swim in right now, and we have been watching Game of Thrones lately. Which, as S2Hullabaloo told me, is basically like porn. Guess people didn't like to wear clothes in mythical medieval times.

Scrub down and get salt off the decks, anchor rode, dinghy... Wipe down the standing rigging, wash out the running rigging... Collect rainwater off the main in a bucket and take "bucket baths" in the cockpit... Have a cold one!
