I have noticed something similar when taking a shower on land after being on the water for several days. I feel like the shower is moving and I'm going to fall. Sleeping in a land bed has never been a problem.

Re: Tips for sleeping on shore

I find that an am radio set between stations for white noise works great. Also a small desk fan will do wonders. ( when I got back from deployments I couldn't sleep on land without these two things for at least a week. ) ( USN vet)

Skip the valium and take 2-5mg of dilaudid. Wash it down with a glass of red wine.

Wake up rested and with a rosy glow that will last all day.

Cans. The growlers go flat unless you drink em quick.

I assume you're planning an excursion to the new Ballast Point brewery restaurant? (Since you mentioned growlers)

It's a fun place. The Green Flash tasting room is about a mile away or so from it.

Maybe there should be an app for us on the opposite side. A "land noises" app for when I'm sleeping on the boat. Traffic, barking dogs, etc..

Re: Tips for sleeping on shore

Lighting Bug (Android) is the name of the app I use. Many packs of sounds including forest, shore, city, jungle, white noise, etc. Works for me.

Re: Tips for sleeping on shore

Use a coffee table and a few side tables to prop the bed up so that it sits four-five feet off the floor. That way, you'll have to climb up into the bed and if you sit up during the night, you'll whack your head on the ceiling....just like home.

If you are leaving from Florida, don't forget having a few cockroaches (oops, I mean Palmetto Bugs) crawling on you!

Re: Tips for sleeping on shore

When I've been on a "long" cruise of say one or two weeks, I'm rocking in front of the computer screen upon returning to home. Good chance you'll experience a comforting rock upon returning to land.

Mark, we call it "rockin'", too. W also find that smaller confined spaces trigger it: showers, diners with settees with high backs, interrogation rooms...
