Ahoy! from Marsha Paulekas on 29 Nov '17

Always wonderful to read your articles. Although I am living on the Morning Star each winter, we rarely take her out cruising. We met you in Carrabelle right after we purchased her and were cruising her down to the Keys. We loved that journey. It was a great adventure. Would love to do more of it. I had dried a lot of my garden veggies that year and used them for the months we cruised. It saved space and offered nutritious veggies to be added to anything and everything. I also grow micro greens which take up very little space and are wonderfully nutritious. We stay in the Keys in the winter at Coral Bay Marina. If you ever get down this far I hope you will look me up. You have a wonderful Holiday season on your boat. Happy Cruising my friend! Love, Marsha

I remember your kindness Marsha. from Janice aboard Seaweed on 29 Nov '17

Yes, I do recall you. Your boat was set up nicely too. It was the first Gulfstar 36' I was aboard.

Dehydrated veggies are on my wish list Marsha. I have seen quart-sized containers on Amazon that interest me. The quantities are larger than I can handle. Maybe next year I'll buy a thrift store dehydrator in season and do a bunch of peppers, onions, celery, etc. I thought about that this year and decided one more project simply would overwhelm me. That is a wonderful idea though, and one I intend to follow up on next summer. Thanks!

I agree on the micro-greens. I am blessed to have the use of a cool as heck tablet. That has allowed me to explore YouTube. There I "met" a fellow named Khang Starr. I have learned a lot thanks to his videos.

As for Coral Bay Marina, one of these days I just might show up there. I have heard it is a friendly place.

Looking forward to catching up in person, J.

Paralyzed... from Michael / Eventide on 29 Nov '17

Janice - great article, one of your best. Nice to know that I am not the only one stuck in this Paralysis rut. You are truly an inspiration and I read every article you post. Good luck with your trip to the Florida East Coast. You are special and I will be looking for you along the way. If you ever get back to the St. Pete area please give me a shout. Would love to see you. M.

Ready to go! from Pam on 29 Nov '17

Janice, so happy to see you getting all ready for a new adventure (not knowing where to stow all the goodies you have prepared - and forgetting to get every single thing all at once when at the stores. :) Enjoy the boat show and I hope you meet a few of the folks who enjoy this blog!

Will do Michael. from Janice aboard Seaweed on 30 Nov '17

I am so looking forward to seeing more of this coast. Christmas at anchor with all my holiday lights ought to be fun. I'm listening to my Christmas music flash drive and life is wonderful. Truly I am blessed.

Don't forget to look for me at the St Pete boat show if you spot me. I'll be wearing a white shirt. I am looking forward to seeing all the new goodies.

Thank you Michael for your comment. I appreciate that. J.

Absolutely Pam from Janice aboard Seaweed on 30 Nov '17

The weather down here has been fantastic. Warm days and cool nights... Just perfect.

I know I don't get more frustrated by what I perceive as incomplete jobs. I prefer to finish things. It makes me happy to know each project is done.

Tonight I figured out a place to hang my clothes while drying. And not only that, it's already finished. I've been washing my clothes on board for the most part. I needed more line space and found some. You have no idea he was happy that makes me!

And tomorrow is the boat show. I can't wait. It would be really cool if I get to meet someone who reads my website. There are a couple thousand a day that stop by. A couple years back I met Janice and Marty which was beyond cool. What a small world, eh?!?

The boat shows do have interesting products. I am semi-looking for ten feet of 3/8th inch hose for a project, though I doubt I'll find that. I am anxious to again see the ways tuna doors latch and open. I'm going too look at Garhauer's booth. Their products are easily recognized. Truly spectacular craftsmanship. I'd like to see if they have anything for a tuna door. They specialize in sailboat hardware. I'm just curious. They are the best.

Thanks again for your nice note. I appreciate it. J.
