For us dirt-dwellers wanting to live vicariously through you all until we can make the break; what does a typical morning at anchorage consist of for you?

Ok - so maybe there isn't a typical day, but we'll just take today then. What did you do this morning? Chores? A nice leisurely breakfast, some snorkeling, exploring?

Thanks and good sailing to you and yours!

Yup, sitting in a bay with the anchor down is the best way to catch up on some sleep.

Some days I get up nice and early, first thing in the afternoon.

Having spent almost all our cruising in the tropics, mornings and late afternoon was when we were most active. That's when Peter went out to get water to replenish our tank, find "stuff", for me to snorkel around also finding "stuff", and then when the sun was highest, we'd both hide from the sun and take a nap.

Here's one of my notes on the life of a cruiser: A week in the life of a cruiser

And a few paragraphs down, "Outboard" - what happens to cruisers who have been out too long and get really complacent. Good morning workout.
In 1986 we went cruising for a few years. After 20 years and 50+ countries and several oceans, we are STILL "cruising for a few years".

A typical cruising day? Well it depends whether we sail or stay put in a nice anchorage. If you want to get the pace of life of a slow, most of the times, cruiser in the Med look up my blog
