For the first time in my adult life, I have longer hair on my chin than on
my head, although, in truth, my eyebrows are probably the longest. I recall
the last time I tried this; parts of my beard were ginger. This time, I have
distinctly snowy patches. It makes me look ancient. I believe I used to look
much more distinguished.
Most of today was spent trying to devise a way to turn the dingy into
floating bridge to the marina wall so we could leave the boat independently.
The swell and the oil covered mooring lines put paid to that. We also had a
trip to the local mall by taxi to scout out the provisioning situation for
when we leave. We left the mall with mosquito netting and fly-spray as the
local insect life is a bit too friendly.
Shin changed the engine oil today. Full marks, but now I have to source more
oil filters and oil. My top tip for those thinking of doing one of these
jaunts is to stuff the boat with spares from home. It is by far the easiest
and usually cheapest place, to stock up.
