Last Week I recapped some of my time onboard Pelican, this week I’m going to show you the rest of the interesting photos that I took onboard. I do have to admit that in almost 6 weeks that I was onboard I didn’t really take that many photos, I have quite a lot already so I only tend to take photos of things that are different to normal.
Every so often we will get a day off here and there. Our most welcome day off happened to be the same day as the Weymouth Iron man competition. So the whole town was full of runners, I took walk out along the beach with one of the officers since he wanted to go on a bit more of a hike than me I took a rest on the beach in the sun whilst he headed off in the direction of the next town!
Since we had finished the sailing for the season we did lots of cleaning. Deep cleaning a ship requires getting in all sorts of weird corners
The freezer shelves
The food store shelves
Also for a large part of the time we didn’t have a cook onboard which resulted in me doing a lot of the cooking, which means my portion control is a bit messed up for the moment, I need to get out of the habit of cooking for 10!
I did manage to get a bit of crafting done whilst away
We de rigged all of the sails and stored them in out mess so that they didn’t get wet
Working onboard a small ship like this you have to be a bit of a jack of all trades, some how I ended up doing engineering the last few days to try and get out tank level monitors working… *soo much wiring…
There are always some good opportunities for good photos:
This newspaper article is laminated and hanging on our noticeboard, it always makes me smile. Whilst not the best photo choice as the three people shown are all ships crew or volunteers two of them are making hats that I have made for them (the other, in the centre, is also wearing a RTW hat that belongs to me)
Its nice to be home again even if it is only for a few days here and there at the moment as I am off working for Sunsail in Portsmouth and staying there on one of the boats, entertaining myself in the evenings by knitting…
