We are finally back onboard! We had a delightful visit with family and friends - lots of Christmas carol sing-a-longs (nothing says "Joy to the World" like Vlad’s grandma and me rocking out on tambourines) and a champagne and fireworks filled New Year’s celebration at our friends’ house in San Antonio. Good times had by all, indeed. But it does feel amazing to be back home, even with that slightly musty the-boat’s-been-closed-up-for-too-long smell greeting us from the companion way.
Since I missed Bettie so much, I figured I should give everyone a tour of just exactly what I was pining for during our holiday. Bettie has a layout that’s much like an efficiency apartment; the galley, bed, table and settee and nav station are all within the main cabin, and what on other boats is a v-berth is the head, workshop and sail repair area on our boat. Here are a few pics of the inside.
