For 6 long weeks we have been doing a major engine change in home and sailboat...
Already midsummer and no working engine in the boat.
A broken engine, new stickers with her name and a composting toilet. After two days of mourning I realized its three weeks to midsummer, a weekend when you as a boat owner don't wont to be stuck at the pier.
We've been asked to explain how it's like to live aboard a boat. How we solve the practical issues like dishes, showers and laundry. And how we manage to get a long in such a small space.
My first mother's day, a nice one with some hamburger and cake a t Daniel's brother's place. Pelle where in the center and now he's sleeping tight.
Finally! After a cold start of the month, today we've got 24°C/75°F and the sun where warming. We have been in the boat all day except for a few hours thus morning when me and Pelle were on the final meeting of the baby café for this semester.
Busy week last week = blogging wasn't prior. We worked our buts of to make the boat ready for Saturday's scheduled launch.
This week has been very cold and rainy, and we have mostly been driving stuff from the apartment to the boat. The most sunny day of the week we made a trip to Munkedal at the west coast to buy us a second-hand dinghy, which resulted in this very happy baby! (picture)
Our plans for good Friday where dashed when we woke up to a winter wonderland that morning, the arrangement was that Marica's parents should babysit Pelle and we where going to do work on Amie that needed both of our attendant. But since the traffic situation didn't look that good her parents cancelled and we needed to rethink the situation.
This Saturday the tarpaulin went of and our beauty got to se the sun for the first time since October. Such a pleasant feeling! A feeling of hope, happiness and a lust for adventure. Now we can see that she once again will se water, it's been way to long since last time.
