My back is feeling much better after much rest, physical therapy, and a cortisone injection in the middle of October. And I've managed not to strain it while moving aboard the boat over the past few weeks.
We are officially living on Dovka. It’s a big move and a major adjustment. Four people and all their stuff on a 35-foot boat.
When we first brought our gear, and clothing, and food, and school supplies, and books, and, and, and aboard we were living amidst piles of stuff.
It’s better now that most of our gear is stowed away in the many nooks and crannies to be found aboard. And it is truly amazing how much can be crammed onto a boat this size.
It’s starting to feel like home. Sleeping in our bunks is becoming more natural. Cooking in the small galley is becoming more second nature. Lauren has managed to bake multiple loaves of bread and the other night I made beef stroganoff in the small Instant pot which was a big hit with the crew.
We’re ticking off the many small jobs that need doing before departure and while the list will never be empty, it is getting shorter with few big items on it.
It’s exciting, scary, nerve wracking, reassuring, and somewhat unbelievable to me that we’re on the precipice of taking the first passage that will begin our journey south aboard Dovka.
