Provisioning a boat with pretty much everything you need for 3 months isn't easy and certainly can't be completed in just one trip to the grocery store. I use a chart created in Word to help me keep track of what I have and what I need to buy. I found it on the internet last year and made a few changes. Sorry I can't give credit where due because I couldn't find it again. I certainly don't get every item on this list. But it does give me a good starting point and makes me think about things I might have forgotten otherwise.
We started working on provisioning every early this year. We bought and vacuum sealed most of our meat back in September when we were in Virginia. Then finished up in Florida buying most of the nonperishable items before Christmas and the perishable items after we returned. All that is left is to get a few fresh veggies and we will be ready to go!
Here is one present from Mom and Dad that I can't wait to try out for real! It is an underwater camera and a snorkeling mask. Last year we borrowed a friend's underwater camera to take pictures and loved it. This mask/camera combo means that I will have both hands free while snorkeling or shallow diving. I gave it a try while at my parents house for Christmas.
Obviously I need to figure out how to aim the camera when it is attached to my head. This photo has had NO editing. The camera even does video. My Mom was a great sport pretending to swim underwater for the video! Love you Mom! :)
This is the Gluggle Jug. Who would have ever thought pouring water would be fun! It actually makes a bubbly gurgly sound when you pour and you can feel the bubbles in your hand. My water intake has definitely increased just because I like playing, I mean pouring.
I looked up the Gluggle jug online and found out the have been in the UK for a long time. In fact this one belonged to Lady Di and Prince Charles. I think they look pretty similar. Thanks for the fun Ashley and Aaron!
