The infamous fruit hammock! Wreaked havoc for the poor crew members sleeping in the bow the first few days of the trip. Believe it or not,  most of the hammock and an additional 40 or so bananas have already been eaten in less than a week! Either the crew  decided to conquer the flying fruit by eating it as fast as they could, or they really like their fruits and veggies!

Believe it or not, most of the hammock and an additional 30 or so bananas hanging in the salon have already been eaten in less than a week!

To all of you who are wondering about life in the galley, it is a rodeo! Cooking at sea is a mix between juggling, self-defense, and yoga. We are now on port tack which makes doing dishes a breeze, but with aΒ heel, I can’t quite open up the fridge or any of the port side food cabinets without their contents trying to fly out across the galley. It has been really fun to make homemade sandwich bread at sea. The gimbaled stove is my favorite tool in the kitchen.

Thank you for all your thoughts and prayers, we love you!

  1. Wow great pictures and great memories! I love the picture of Jackie and Matt on the bow with the selfie stick! Also nice to see a picture of you all together πŸ™‚ Especially like the analogy that cooking is a mix between juggling, self-defense and yoga. Uncle Martin would be proud….great to see the fruit hammock is not still the swinging menace it was……between the isometrics and the natural fresh food the crew is destine to come back fit and trim! Continued safe travels!

  4. Btw not sure what “news” ur getting out there but this could spur a good debate and conversation on board… Donald Trump announced yesterday he’s running for president (Republican Party) he says he’s worth 9 billion dollars – so far he hasn’t taken any positions that I know of but I think this brings like 20 republicans to the field now! In my opinion Hillary definitely got a face lift ! and no offense but Bill looks so old now- this should be an interesting year πŸ˜‰

    • Thanks for providing the conversation fodder! The crew of Moondance is unanimous, as ratified over our morning oatmeal, that we look forward to the late-night comedy shows making fun of The Donald. We are disappointed by the circus.

  8. Hi there!!!
    Becky sent me the link to y’all’s blog and I have really enjoyed reading your entries this morning! I cannot imagine how you manage at sea without getting sea sick as that is all I have ever experienced but I can imagine the incredible thrill of the adventure you are on! From my perspective, y’all are living this blessed life to the fullest and I admire your courage, teamwork and spirit! Keep those pictures coming so we can “armchair travel” with you! Love and prayers for continued safe travels!
