I find it hard to take in but it seems like this summer may have come to an end. This is when all the boaters start to stock up on wool, coal and wood… It’s time to prepare for our fourth winter on the boat… soon this red dress will be replaced by a survival suit… but not yet, not today and not tomorrow.

CAN SOMEONE PLEASE SWITCH THE SUN BACK ON?
Whilst we’re heating up the boat with the first log of the fall (Can someone please switch the sun back on?) I’m posting a photo taken three weeks ago and I take comfort in the fact that even though things are a bit grey and damp at the moment; blue skies will come again.

HERE TODAY, GONE TOMORROW
When people ask me what it’s like to live on a boat I say, «It’s different.» «What’s so different about it?» And since they ask I sum up the long, boring, explanatory list about electricity, water, internet, the toilet-situation and by this they always seem to regret even asking. But when we come to the part about being continuous cruisers they seem light up again. You see, this is the best part, the moving around part. Every 7th to 14th day we have to move on, depending on where we have been moored, and that’s what makes life like a box of chocolates – you never know what you’re gonna get…
QUOTE OF THE DAY
«Courage doesn’t always roar. Sometimes courage is the quiet voice at the end of the day saying, I will try again tomorrow.»
This bag is from the pound shop and will help me use less plastic bags. We’re going to carry a lot of groceries together; this bag that isn’t Chanel and I.
NOTHING STAYS THE SAME…
And just like that the weather changed. Londoners strutted around in their bikinis one day and zipped up their winter jackets the next day. I’m so not ready to say goodbye to this summer, but that’s how the story goes; every summer ends every single year.
IN MY FAVOURITE YOGA PANTS.
I think about doing yoga every day. And here I am…still thinking.
So apparently Summer is over for now. I was heartbroken when I was told it was going to rain so I soaked up as much sun as I could during my lunch break on deck. That’s also when I found a cure against wrinkles… Drum role: Get the app Snapseed and use the filter called ‘Smooth’ and voilà..:
Wrinkles are gone 😉
