This morning I was sitting at the table in the main salon (living room area) and I noticed Rafael, the security guard, outside waving his arms at me. He had come to tell me that the fruit and veggie boat had arrived.
I went out to it and found it to be filled with all sorts of fresh delicious stuff. Since we are leaving in a couple days I didn’t get much, but bought 2 cucumbers, 4 tomatoes and 4 lilikoi, and it came to $5. Not bad at all. It looked a lot fresher than the produce in town, so I think that’s where all our fresh goodies will be coming from, from here on out.
After that I went and did laundry. The washer and dryer each cost $1.75, and the dryer really didn’t dry much, so I ame back and hung it all out on the boat to dry.
With the sun being as warm as it is here, everything dried in no time at all. While that was drying I prepared a yummy lunch for my Sweet Darling.
I used the eggs Lisa brought over last night and though you most likely can’t see it very well, I cut holes in his bread in the shape of a heart and cooked his eggs in them. I also cut up fresh pineapple, cucumber and tomato for him. The hot sauce for the eggs was one of Danny’s finds in town. It’s local and really hot!
Danny took the outboard off the dinghy and flipped the dinghy over onto the dock so I could scrub the bottom while he continues to work on the engine.
It was so loaded with barnacles and tube worms. I felt bad scraping them off and destroying their little homes, but they create so much drag on the boat. As I was scraping I did get sprayed with a mouth full of all the muck a couple of times and by the time I was done it tasted like I’d just been at an uncooked seafood buffet. As I reached the end it began raining, so I’ll let the rain wash the boat off for a bit then I’ll go out and scrub some more.
