It’s hard to believe that it’s 7 years ago that we became liveaboards. It turned out to be an interesting and fascinating time for both of us.
Although it was only for a little under three years, we would not change it for the world and have fond memories of chaos, learning curves, and thinking outside the box (aka boat). We also have our own expression for forgetfulness, that being ‘boat moments’ as quite often within walking the 30 odd feet of one end of the boat to the other we would forget why.
It’s hard to believe we completed on the sale of our house six weeks ago. Now all that is definitely behind us, as we took possession of our new home yesterday. Hubby then had to move it (with tuition) from our place of purchase to our new address. It was an interesting 3 hours, as I drove off with the dog, and he puttered off for the journey. Last night, all three of us had the best nights sleep for months. I think the lapping of the water and peace and tranquility of The Marina had a lot to do with it.

What an adventure, to live on a boat! I love the term “boat moments”, could totally see that happening to me 😂
Hi Juliette. We certainly had a lot of those, and still do haha! It was a great life, and we miss the simplicity of it and were sorry to give it up, but decided to do so on our terms, not when forced. Our last trip was wonderful.
Absolutely , this was a joy to read 💜💜
Thanks. Happy memories.
Although this may sound ridiculous – I also have fond memories of your time on the boat! Everything was ship shape and you made the most of every single inch.
An adventure indeed. 😀
Thanks Sci. It was a great time for us and we are still in touch with some of the friends we made, not all of which were boat owners!
Oh how lovely! 😀
Sounds like you made some real strong friendships and lots of happy memories.
It was a good life and we learned a lot. We’re still in touch with several of the friends we made when we were liveaboards, and some weren’t boat owners!
That sounds nice!
Wonderful memories Di! Hope you enjoyed every second on the boat! Xx
We would not change our times as liveaboards for anything.
