The Ice cream ball from LL Bean,
Amazing how good fresh ice cream tastes with the appropriate adult beverage.

Isn't that the definition of luxury? My bucket has a shiny stainless handle; is that too over the top? But where are my manners, I was interrupting your bragging about your simple life in a jocular thread about luxury goods aboard a luxury mode of transportation. 😆.


(I'm just teasing you about all this by the way)

Re: Boat Luxuries

I think a nice expensive bottle of brandy (or scotch if that's your poison) that is too good to drink everyday but just perfect as a treat or reward. It's hard to find treats 100 miles from nowhere.

That's not a treat. That's just the grog... you need one special one for a treat, with like a wax seal or something to make it an event
