For me just being on the boat is a kind of guilty secret pleasure.

Re: Secret Pleasures Aboard Your Boat

I enjoy being on the boat by myself, which does not happen that often. If I have to get up before dark and happen to catch a beautiful sunrise, then all the better. Being by myself usually only happens when I am transiting the boat to pick up clients at a remote site or taking the boat back to the home dock after dropping them off. A little solitude on a boat once in a while is a good thing.

I'm getting goosebumps just listening to the other's secret pleasures. Even if you don't think it's a secret- I'm enjoying hearing about them! I'm in a hammock and eating chocolate, by myself on my boat... Ahhh 
