Galley Wench Tales

Exploring the world through the people we meet
and the food they eat.

Bare-footed Wayne checking out
Mike and Rebecca’s
met at a Cruiser’s shindig at Barnacles in 
Simpson’s Lagoon, St. Martin and can attest
it certainly looks like they practice what they
preach — boat fitness.  Very pleasant couple, and
in fabulous shape.

Yesterday was a major milestone — January 13th and Wayne broke out his fleece jacket.  From the waist down, however, he still sported just
boxers.  “The fleece?  I only wore it just for an hour,” Wayne points out.

The weather blogs claim it was in the low 70s.  We have no thermometer of our own — it’s on our long list of thing to rectify, though we’re betting that doesn’t account wind chill.  Sure, I broke out my fleece a week ago, but anyone who knows me, knows I’m a total wimp when it comes to what defines cool weather.

Do we have the temperature correct?  Is it wind chill?  Or has our blood just gotten way too used to 80 degree plus temps?

Dunno.  But it’s amazing how much a cup of coffee, some hot porridge and looking at snow pictures back in the States can warm us up in a hurry.
