Also from 14 July 2003 Journal….
Cockpit showers have become a feature and are much appreciated. But we could do with buying at least one new one. (These are solar showers….ideal in the heat.) In the books about liveaboards, they go on great adventures, wear next to nothing, eat gourmet home-caught food, never get sunburnt and are fit and lithe. I suppose it says much that we seem to need to visit a Pharmacie in every other town and have pill-trolley twice a day.
That is what comes of getting older I suppose…..
