Things are Different On a Boat

Lots of things are different on a boat like...

Making toast, Laundry,  You can Climb on the Roof, and Your Backyard.

Making toast on a boat is more complicated than making toast on land.  We don't have an electric toaster so we have to use a camp toaster on which you have to turn the toast regularly.  Making a piece of toast takes about 15 to 20 minutes.

Laundry on a boat takes a plunger, a wringer and a bucket and a bit of soap thrown in for good measure.  It's a lot more compliicated than just throwing the clothes in a washing machine and taking them out and throwing them in a dryer and then carting them off to where ever you live.

On a boat you can climb on the roof.  There are steps affixed into the wall of the cabin.  Climbing up two or three stair like steps means you are on the roof.

My backyard is ever changing.  One day I might see a city behind me and then the next I might see a jungle.  Sometimes I'll have two backyards at once.

You are definitely living a very interesting life. I think it is awesome that your back yard is ever-changing.

When I was a kid we used to go camping. We would make toast over an open fire. The trick was to never get too close to the flame, but close enough to actually toast it. It took a bit of patience to make perfect toast, but it was worth it. I bet you feel the same way too. Do you have some yummy homemade jam to put on it?
