I had a couple days off the boat – felt kinda strange. I made the three hour drive to Tampa, FL (Trinity, actually) to visit a niece and her family. I’ve only been living aboard for a couple weeks but the feeling is still noticeable.
I had a wonderful time and enjoyed all the SPACE. I think the bathroom that I had to myself was larger than my whole boat!!! 🙂 The marina bathroom is nearly a half mile round trip (from the boat) for the serious jobs – this one was MUCH closer.
My niece and her husband have two young children – boy and a girl. Not sure what that makes them to me – perhaps great niece and nephew or something – I dunno. In any case, they were a blast and are great kids! It’s been awhile since I spent any time with young kids so had almost forgotten what they were like – SO MUCH ENERGY. You looking for a great business opportunity? Figure out how to tap into that energy supply – the country would never be in need again! 🙂
My niece made a wonderful batch of spaghetti for dinner but, as you can see, the garlic bread didn’t fare so well… 🙂
