SUMMER LIFE


read, do crafts, work on scrapbooks, work on the boat (sanding and varnishing), fish, take pictures, etc. Naps were also a popular pastime, especially on days characterized by warm sun and gentle waves. Sometimes we’d find adventure along the


way, stopping at a beach or island or other place that caught our attention or that we’d heard had something interesting to offer. Other days we’d head for our evening anchorage, then go on-shore excursions. These trips were partly for exploring and partly for the dog, who chose from the beginning to never relieve herself on board Sea Bear. The end of the day brought supper


followed by evening activities. These often involved card games like Canasta, Cheat and Spoons (a violent sailboat game if ever one existed). Occasionally we included fellow sailors and had a party. Danielle celebrated her 12th birthday on board, complete with decorations, a birthday cake (made from a mix that day), games, company, and more. On nights when all were weary, we’d


watch a movie on the laptop instead (usually with fresh popcorn). Our days would end with another trip to shore with the dog, usually with a million-mosquito escort, then back to the boat at our dinghy’s top speed to leave the mosquitoes behind. We’d climb inside and stuff towels in any crevices that were known
