Sailing on a Shoestring – Mish on a Mission – Knickers!!! day to day living on a boat dealing with washing as a liveaboard #sailing #Sailing Catamaran
Although i have been living on and off the boat for 2 years, I have buried STUFF in storage……. because i haven’t lived in a house , i didn’t have the usual clutter of fridges, washing machines, white goods and big furniture! But it was still a traumatic task to unburden myself of stuff ,so as to go sailing and travelling much lighter.
Lets go fishing? he said ! ok so it was calm, but I think that maybe I got my sea legs , and possibly the whole being out at sea , special sunsets and magical colours and stuff !
Slowly rocking, back and forth, back and forth, wind howling, rain pouring, ropes clacking, and crashing against masts. sudden jerks of movement, stopped with a quick tug on the cleat pulling on the ropes keeping us held to the mooring. its getting stronger, the wind, its blowing through the sheets , the rigging a singing a soulful song through the masts of other boats moored to the pontoon .waiting in anticipation, because tonight into the early hours Angus to going to hit at full force ten ! Soon we will be rocking, bucking, tossing and holding on as we get swirled around in 80 mph winds ! …………just saying !
So after 10 years looking after my elderly Mother We are finally back afloat living on our new boat. She is a fabulous Prout Snowgoose Elite 37ft Catamaran
