Kerri eats more sea life
A whole week now. That’s all that it has been, but it feels like much longer already – at least to me. I’m quickly falling right back into the routine of life on the hook. It is an easier life than being on the dock, I will admit. With all the major projects and repairs complete, I can satisfy my need to accomplish something each day with minor, menial, tasks… such as getting to know a toy-slash-tool Kerri purchased late in our 2020 sailing season; our solar oven.
The GoSun Solar Oven has been patiently waiting use all winter. With time to kill, I got it all mounted up on our new stern pulpit extensions (I installed some 1 inch stainless tubing, replacing both sides of the cockpit lifelines, to extend out pulpit, in the final days before we left Port Townsend) and even gave it a test run with a scrambled egg concoction. I fully expected to return an hour later to still runny eggs, but instead it transformed into an extremely overcooked – and disgusting – loaf of green fluffy goo. However, it did provide proof that the oven worked. I just needed to pay more attention to it, even in these early days of the year. I can only imagine how well it will perform in June/July.
Kerri put it through it’s paces properly just a day later, after a visit to the local shoreline to scavenge up some bottom feeders…

write post blog posts herself (she doesn’t realize that her Facebook> posts are essentially blog posts)
