You're being polite, Kareng. I sounded like I needed to star in my own version of One Flew Over The Cuckoos Nest.

Day4.

Up at 6am. It is fricking freezing. The Pirate turns on the 'heater' which means turning on the propane stove and lighting the oil lamp. I stay in bed while he's heating water for coffee, but without a second body it's too cold to stay there. I get up and put on all the clothes and sit under a blanket. It's so cold that I'm snorting steam out of my nose. The Pirate hands me my coffee.

It's a beautiful day, or will be once the fog burns off. Today's plan is head back into town and find the internet cafe.


to be continued. :)

The Pirate heads up the hill to the coffee shop. I stop at the marina bathroom to wash my hair. Not a lot of space, but it is heated. It's one of those pushbutton faucets that delivers about 6 seconds of water - either hot, or cold, not both. The hairwashing takes a while, and I do a partial blowdry by squatting under the hand dryer.

The Pirate has my coffeecup ready for me and we spend a long morning in a warm room catching up on the world. No potties, you have to run across the street to the ferry terminal to pee. Whatever. The Pirate heads up the hill to try to find a spare fan belt just in case, and we meet up after a bit, head to the store to pick up something for dinner and head back to the boat.

Snacks on the deck as he motors across the way aver to Deer Harbor on Orcas Island. Too many rocks and not enough wind to sail. We anchor out in the bay after marveling at the houses the size of small hotels. We climb into the dinghy and for the dock to tie up and walk into town. At the dock we see two gentlemen loading up a small speedboat with a truckload (literally) of supplies. Either they're having one hell of a party, or they are in one of the houses on a private island, or with beach access only. I see the bags of chicken feed and ask the guy if this part of the adventure has gotten old yet. :) He happily vents for a few minutes about the price of chicken feed and having to boat in, then drive to a store for supplies. His buddy gives him the "can we get going?" look, and we wave goodbye.

It turns out that 'town' was an optimistic word. What we get is a few houses on a country road and a ton of hotels and resort buildings. We go for a walk and go back to the boat for dinner and an amazing sunset. The water is so still that you can see the ripples from something swimming just below the surface.

Day5.

Cold morning. Inside the boat is dripping. After a few minutes of heat, the Pirate opens up the boat to start the drying out process. He heads out the the dock to ask if we can fill up with water and I pout inside for a while sipping coffee. Eventually I get tired of fussing, fix myself a bowl of yogurt and granola and go up on deck. It;s colder outside, but beautifully sunny. I munch on my breakfast and watch half a dozen eagles circling the hilltop. The pirate comes back and motors over to the dock for water. After this brief pitstop he heads out of the bay. Where do you want to go? Dunno. Pick an island.

After a beautiful couple hours on the water he pulls into a bay. Where are we? East Bay. There's a city dock we can tie up to.

The Pirate hops out and ties up. There's a couple guys on the dock he starts chatting with. Since the Pirate can chat for quite a while, I head off the dock to see what's up. Ah, perfect. A trail into the woods with a sign that says "Sacred Ground. Go Away. By Authority of the Lummi Nation". That's my path. It's a lovely walk along the cliff and I finally feel warm. Get back to the boat and the Pirate is gone. Wander into town, walk two of the three streets and go back to the boat for food. The Pirate shows up with some groceries. The store is on the street I didn't walk. He's also found an internet place. He grabs a snack and we walk the sacred path and meet some friendly dogs and their dogsitter. Back to the boat for a light dinner and another walk through town. All three streets this time. The Pirate has been chatting up people about the barefoot bandit.

Day6.

Holy crap it's cold. There's so much condensation in the boat that it's raining on the bed. The Pirate gets up and opens the hatches. An amazing sunny morning. We chat with a dad and his kids fishing on the dock and offer them some hot dog for bait. A couple cups of coffee and head up into town to the bookstore for coffee and internet.

Day6.

A couple cups of coffee and head up into town to the bookstore for coffee and internet.


Coffee before coffee? I started to realize we've seen that word ALOT in the past 6 days.......like 15 times to be exact!

Probably because of this........

"I was cold.
Very cold.
Very very very cold."

" My feet were numb, my hands were numb, my face was numb."

"I'm so far into hypothermia that I just stare at him."

"I'm now wearing flannel pants, regular pants, cotton socks, wool socks, two long sleeve Ts, one short sleeve, a cotton hoodie, a fleecie, a rain coat, and a windbreaker."

"I'm cold".

"...been numb with cold,..."

"Cold morning."

"Holy crap it's cold."

Wasn't there some other stuff you talked about, too? I'm sure there was something else......sorry, can't see much beyond "cold". Me and cold don't get along AT ALL. :ph34r:

Coffee is an essential nutrient. :ph34r:

I have a great porcelain mug that holds one US pint (16 oz). My travel mug holds the same. Then a refill at Starbucks most days at work. :D

The many times that I have spent three hours sitting in our big outdoor football stadium during the end of season games (November), snug in my long johns and blankie, the older fans have taught me something pivotal -- coffee, tea, hot chocolate, forget it. NOTHING gets you warm and keeps you that way but alcohol. Most of them were throwing back brandy or scotch from their little silver vials.. . . ...

Jyessss! Get some gin, fer gawd's sake! No more of this coffee child's play!

Good reading there on the travelogue Jest. Sounds like you need one of those big yellow slickers that the fishermen wear to keep toasty and dry. I can just see your picture on the front of a box of Gorton's fish sticks. And the slogan would be :"Gorton's fish sticks, caught by Jest herself".

Welcome back - back low-E. Sounds like you are feeling a mite better, that's good news.

I saw this announcement on another site. Seems like with all the interest in healthy diets here that someone would have suggested this one by now. But of course we can't be on top of all the new developments all the time. I am thinking of becoming a distributor for the products when they are available. Jest could help too since she has a boat for deliveries to the island folks. I am not sure coffee is going to work out though, sorry Jest.
