Make executive decisions ;Such as whether to pull the prawn trap before or after breakfast. Look for mushrooms or get the clam gun. It's tough work but somebody"s gotta do it.

Re: What do you do when you are docked or anchored?

Read trashy novels. Organize the music on my ipod. Write. Sit. Drink rum and watch the world go by. Socialize with my neighbors. Learn about the history of whatever city I'm in, what makes it unique. Cook. Explore. Dream.

In other words, when I'm not doing "ship's work," I play. Tough life, this fulltime liveaboard cruising thing.

Sometimes you just don't need to do anything.
That's exactly the point. We're all "doing" something all of the time, in our land-bound lives, plus the act of actually sailing to wherever it is we're going.

When the hook is set and the engine is off, I sigh in relief and decompress. I deliberately turn into a potato and do as little as possible.

I did a simple over-nighter on Friday night, and except for a few provisioning hiccups, it was pure bliss.

Notice, we're called human beings, not human doings. That should tell you something right there.

Re: What do you do when you are docked or anchored?

Our next purchase will be a couple of tablets. While I don't read a lot of fiction anymore the Wombet does and no matter how many bookshelves you have there are never enough. Me I read a fair bit of historical stuff which tends to be bulky so I'm really looking forward to having a library on puter. I'm also a cryptic crossword nut and Friday's Sydney Herald is a killer to which I can devote a goodly dollop of Saturday.

Other than that I'm with Jones. Think about food and wine, talk about food and wine, cook food, open wine, eat food, drink wine. So I'm looking forward to trying out some new recipes courtesy of Chef and Copacabana and a Spanish Cookbook that the Wombet gave me last birthday.

Which reminds me .... our pre dinner ritual



with



Oh yes ... and I nap.

To be honest there are never enough hours in the day.

TDW, perhaps some cheese might be added to that ritual?
