well, we're nearly a week into our new floating abode. here are the things worth noting and some that aren't; it turns out that an easy morning shower, and by easy i mean hot and with room to move left and right, is as important as the very caffeine that soon follows. coffee has also turned into an elusive animal. it seems our AC power system cannot handle the amp pull needed by the power hungry electric kettle. shortly after plugging in the ravenous appliance the boy was heard to say "dad, i smell smoke!". ok, one option down and a few to go. yes, this boat life, as of recent, is a few steps up from pitching tents and toasting our buns, both hot dog and otherwise, over a roaring fire. luckily that potential fire was superseded by rae's keen sniffer. so on we press in this latest style of glamping, (glamorous camping, thanks A.T.) until we iron out the obvious, and not so obvious, wrinkles which would also require high amp pull and a new breaker in the power panel.
the sleeping arrangements are going smoother than the coffee quest and the get-dressed-eat breakfast-get out the door routine is coming together at it's own pace.
i brought the bikes down mid-week in hopes of a ride with rae and aaliyah but someone else had other plans, hopefully with their own kids, and removed them 8 hours post placement. what?! pirates already? and in alameda no less. i'll look at it as less to weigh the hull down. glass half full right? even if there are leeches in the water.
