Another lovely day on land and water.


I started the day with a run around Newcastle Island. My parents have been great about getting me to shore for my runs, and this Island seemed perfect. It said it was 7.5km around the island and since my Squad Runner mission called for 6km, it seemed great! I started out, and was going along fine. There was a lot of up and down hill and one section where it would have been better to be a billy goat, but I was plodding along fine. After my one fall (not bad for me for a new technical trail route), I decided that it seemed like I had been out there for longer than I should have been. Think of my surprise when it said I did 9.3km around the island. I’m not sure how I found extra island to run, but perhaps it was the goat track or the fact I kept close to the shoreline 🀣

I also got a workout in this afternoon, or at least some exercises. I did: 10 crunches, 20 reverse curls, 30 heel drops, 40 heel reaches, 50 v ups, 60 bicycles, 70 toe touches, 80 dead bugs, 90 mountain climbers, 100 static crunch with scissor legs, 55 air squats, 55 plow squats, 1:50 plank. Not bad for being on a boat:)


My dad wanted to go the chandlery which was fine. I managed to spend more money than him as a I found a new Helly Hanson fleece that fit nicely. It’s a pretty raspberry colour, so definitely not something I already have in my wardrobe!


I also took the opportunity of being in that area to try out a new ice cream shop. My mom had actually found this place. As we walked up we had stopped into the ice cream shops on the dock, but they just had the fruit sorbetto that was gf/df.

The Cold Front was a lovely stop that had five different plant based options. I went with the coconut flake which was very yummy!

My dad had the salted caramel and London fog ice creams and said they were good too.

I didn’t realize that my mom was holding out for Noodlebox so I ate dessert first and then shared a Chicken Pas Thai box with her.

It would probably be good if I could say that was the end of my eating for the day, but it wasn’t. This evening we dinghied over to

My parents have been here several times so it was neat to finally see what they were talking about. I had the Vanilla Freezie to drink and the one piece halibut and chips to eat. Everything was dairy free and gluten free and was delicious! The drink was nice and sweet but not heavy and the batter on the fish was lovely and light!

My dad had the calamari and of course my parents disagreed on whether this one or the one they had earlier was better. I can’t believe these two manage to live together in small spaces day in and day out without killing each other. I guess 47 years of marriage can do that!


Nothing yet today, but the evening is still young. I have to admit I have a good book to finish though!

Just a pretty evening picture to leave you with:)

Have fun!

  1. I’m enjoying seeing this trip of yours. so many beautiful views in addition to lots of good eats. I”m glad you are also able to find places that you can enjoy the foods and not feel sick later. can’t wait to hear about the next adventure/port of call

    1. Lol they are still pretty cute and I find it amazing they can live in a small boat, trailer and studio apartment and not kill each other

  2. Mmmmmm…. Your food all looks and sounds so good!! (especially as I am, at this moment, driving around our cottage country looking for somewhere to eat… NOTHING IS OPEN IN A MONDAY HERE! πŸ˜•)

    1. Oh no:(. It isn’t usually like this though as my dad prefers pubs and normally ones that don’t do gf/df so I’m trying to indulge while I can:)

      1. Ok. I’m dying right now because I’m assuming you didn’t mean to say kinky there!! πŸ˜‚πŸ˜‚πŸ˜‚ I REALLY want to know why your phone thought that was what you WANTED to say!! πŸ˜‚πŸ’–πŸ’–πŸ’–What have you been typing about, AJ??? πŸ˜˜πŸ˜‚πŸ» You just totally made my day!!

      2. Lol omg!!!! I need to start reading my typing before I press send!!! Trust me I’ve been with my parents for ten days- I’m so G right now I’m safe for a toddler!

      3. NEVER re-read your comments before you send them!! It’s too much fun for me! πŸ˜‚πŸ˜‚πŸ˜‚ Seriously, I was having a pretty terrible day and you absolutely accidentally made it so much better!!… You did that on purpose, didn’t you?? πŸ˜‰πŸ˜‚

      4. Well considering the habit is pretty ingrained and I’m replying to comments between boat jobs- it’s a safe bet I’ll keep pressing send too early🀣
        Glad I could improve your day in some small way:)

      5. Well, thanks God your phone didn’t autocorrect “boat jobs”… That could have REALLY ended badly! πŸ˜‚πŸ˜‚πŸ˜‚πŸ˜‚πŸ›₯️… What’s a boat job, anyways??

      6. Omg that would almost be as bad as my duck comment to an ex!
        Boat jobs include catching lines, putting genders down, moving dinghies, etc

      7. … Putting genders down?? Lmao!! Is this some sort of euthanasia?? πŸ˜‚πŸ˜‚ Sorry to keep bothering, I just love learning new things and this is like a new language!!

      8. Ok that’s enough from me- I’ll just stop talking on here for the day before I make this worse!!!

    1. Thankfully they met at a pub and I stayed home. Now I just have to avoid him for the next three days. We’ll see how I do.

      1. It is so awful!!! I don’t remember this happening when I was a kid, and now it seems like every summer!

      2. Yes, likely global warming – I do believe in global warning though I was skeptical at first, our weather was never so erratic before. It’s sad with the wildfires, not to mention the guy who set the fire – that I just don’t “get” at all.
