Celerbrating this beautiful planet, we all call home. It’s a reminder to not just do something today for the earth, but to remember to continually help her.
Reduce, Reuse, Recycle. Sustain the future.
Crusing on a small boat, shows you how to be sustainable, and to be resourceful. Would love to here the things you do, to be sustainable , sharing ideas is the way to show how easy it is to make a difference , small steps, by each of us, equals a big difference!
Happy Earth Day!
Sunsets, how I love sunsets, to celebrate and give thanks for the day, to dream and ponder, to acknowledge Mother Nature and her beauty. Such wild colours, splashed across the sky, a vivid painting that changes by the second, as the sun fades away and shares her light to the other side of the world.
Some photos from a few weeks ago, from a spectacular sunset. No filter, just a regular canon camera.
The blogging community is a way to connect, and share with the online world. And thanks to a fellow sailor, writer and Australian , I have been given a modem.
which, once I get it all set up, will enable me to update my blog from sea!
Feeling very thankful to Mark for the modem, stormy for the kind words and Moondog And their family who got the modem to me!
Fingers crossed I can get it all connected before I leave! Boat work, always a race against time, money and figuring shit out!
As my time here draws to an end, getting ready to leave again is always an emotional rollercoaster, yet slowly it all comes together…….as I run around like a mad chicken with my head cut off……no matter how many times you leave, that’s one thing that never seems to change.
Have bought a bunch of organic sprouting seeds, to have fresh greens at sea, and on anchor. Nothing like fresh nutritious greens while at sea. nor sure why it’s taken me so long to take up sprouting, but better late then never.
I rescued a cat, and had him for two weeks, it brought so much joy to my heart, having an animal, it’s all I want, is animals. I have to be content with dog sitting and being a foster mum for short periods of time.
Ragnar the cat, We found him on the break water, as someone had dumped him there. It took us three try’s to catch him, and then when we checked if he had a microchip , which he did, we got in touch with his family and he is back home. A happy ending for one of the many lost, and dumped cats, after being missing for ten months.
Would love to here from fellow cruisers who have pets on board, as most countries are pretty good with animals, while others, mainly Australia seem to be complete A-holes about pets.
All I ever wanted was a pony, somehow I ended up with goldfish…..not even remotely close to a pony. Now my trusty steed is a two wheeled bicycle which I love, still not a pony, but I’m getting closer! I could ride forever, with the wind in my hair, feeling like a kid again, as I race cars down the road.
A special day, observing nesting albatross and their chicks on the edge of the island, Hawaiian monk seals basking in the sun, lots of whales breaching and playing close by the shore And a giant honu pulled himself up the beach to rest while we were swimming.
Waves and photos, never show the real size, so when Brian got shots like this with my trusty cannon point and shoot, I know the waves are massive. The Eddie went on 25 th feb 2016, and Waimea bay put on a beautiful show, spectacular waves, sometimes sets of 50 ft and more bombarding the bay. With the best of the best invited to surf these monster waves.
Mother Nature put on a fine show, displaying her strength and power. It’s hard to comprehend 50 plus feet waves, and then to have the balls to surf them!
I always refused to beleive and celebrate Valentine’s Day, saying, “oh it’s too American”, or “I don’t believe in love and that mushy shit”, and “it’s just another commerical day for big business to sell more crap we don’t need”
So I decided to focus on the love aspect, and just celebrate, love, love in all its purist forms. Love for friends and family, love for the planet and all its creatures, love for nature. And just spreading love to all I meet.
Happy Love day, and try and be a rainbow in some else’s cloud.
If you think adventure is dangerous, try routine, it is lethal.
