Our "humble" boat is a 27 foot 1996 Sea Ray Sundancer.
We can cruise fast or slow depending on the weather and our mood.
I always take flowers from the Humble Bungalow Garden.
My all time favourite David Austin Rose is Jude the Obscure.
I know it is not fair choosing just one rose but I cannot help myself...
as Jude is sheer perfection in a rose
Fragrance, form, and colour all exceptional.
I use silverware on the boat.
It might strike you as odd but there is a reason that we have this on board.
When I went shopping to outfit the boat with the few necessities that we needed I was trying to keep the costs down...
when one buys a boat it is usually a tad expensive so I tried to cut corners elsewhere...
I ventured into the big box stores looking for stainless sets and the ones I liked were around $100 a set.
I saw this one in the antique shop for less than half that and it is vintage WMF from Germany...I only need to polish it twice a year to keep it looking good.
I pack my tote bag full of books and magazines
there is plenty of time to relax and read.
We eat simple meals.
I have a one burner stovetop, microwave and BBQ.
Our small fridge prevents us from bringing too much food!
I eat oatmeal with a wee bit of honey for breakfast and Mr. HB prefers V8 juice and a bagel.
Dinners and lunches revolve around salad and some type of protein...
maybe a few new baby potatoes with butter and fresh mint.
"Snacks" are often naughty...
chips and popcorn...
We try to walk or swim everyday.
I read Motherland by Maria Hummel.
It is a well written story about the hardships that women and their families had to live through during the Second World War.
It held my interest right from the very first page...
I highly recommend it.
I am a magnet for mosquitoes so I need to wear these bracelets!
Here is the beautiful morning view at Poets Cove Resort on Pender Island.
The roses in the morning sunshine.
We went for a hike in the forest.
It was cool in the shade and there was a lot of buzzing so I was glad that I wore my mosquito bracelet!
The rocky shoreline is mostly sandstone.
The weather was much better than we had anticipated...
blue skies and sunshine and very little wind.
My favourite kind of weather for cruising!
This is the view the last morning
before we packed up and came home.
Today I am doing laundry...and the skies are grey and the weather cool.
I am so grateful that we had such nice weather for our getaway.
Our house and cat sitter made the weekend possible and I am so thankful.
I am still trying to figure out why my blog will not appear on the Feed as soon as I publish it and I have contacted Blogger but have not heard anything yet.
I am using smaller images on this post to see if that is what is the delay...
so please bear with me as I work on sorting out this issue.
