I live on a 40 foot sailing boat. We have spent the last 10 years sailing around North America, South and central America. We are now back in the UK and have been preparing for our next 'jaunt' which begins in April '16.
Life is simple on the boat, we have no refrigeration so canning is very important to us. We make our own electricity and have the ability to make our own water if it doesn't rain enough to fill the tanks! Everything has to be maintained by us, from the engine to the sails and all points in between. We take pleasure from the simple things in life. Catching a fish, baking a loaf of bread.
This is my galley (Kitchen), it's my favourite place. Everything is within reach and I can cook safely even in a rough sea, the cooker is on gimbals which means that it swings so the pots stay safe even when the boat is rolling around.
When we are sailing everything is safely stowed, when we are tied up I can spread my wings a little! And use the internet to catch up with Down to Earth.
