@rek drawn by hand, photographed with shitty iPad2 camera and processed with sketchbook pro. Photo was a mess, but it cleaned up nice :>. We're at anchor so I can't use my main work station and tools, I changed the battery in 2019, but it's not performing too well these days. Usually, I take photos with our Nikon and process it with Gimp or Krita.
Bread radio names.
Making some doodles for the 100r documentation :>, and it is so fun~!
Loss of life, sailboat sinking
Just read a report on the SY Essence that sank off the coast of NZ in 2019. They suffered severe weather, large waves, and after multiple knockdowns their windows blew out. The yacht had large windows, with no storm coverings. The pressure of the wave caused the windows to be pushed outward.
Pino's windows aren't small. We did not have storm coverings on our trip. We are lucky nothing like this happened. Next big offshore trip, we're covering our windows.
They have a peach tree at their place, and gave us a bunch.
We are spoiled.
We are currently dependent on marinas and friends to get off to land(or swimming..). We've just acquired an old dingy. We'll fix it up and we'll be able to row to shore on our own terms from now on.
Frida is back! 😍 I’ve heard that hummingbirds will revisit the same feeder year after year, but since last year we named one with a distinct single spangle and unique habit of perching above the feeder, now we know for sure. #birdposting
Just finished reading Mingming & the Art of Minimal Ocean Sailing by Roger Taylor. I love Roger's approach to sailing.
He does one big trip per year, and that's all the sailing he'll do that year. On those trips he never lands anywhere. He skirts by land sometimes, admiring it from a distance.
His travels are only ever about being on the ocean, and I really love that.
