Re: Vegan Liveaboards?

Thanks MK for the tip. I will check out TVP. I also took a quick look at your LogBlog. That requires more attention that I am able to give it right now. I shall however return. Now. We are having a most outstanding year for the wild berry crops. Blackberries, like I have never seen and I recently discovered an island that must have a fat acre of wild blueberries. Since I stay/cruise here in the NW I have a storage locker where I keep out of season stuff/junk. A few years ago I picked up a used freezer cheap. There I am able to store my butchered wild game and this year many quarts of berries, and mushrooms. If I had to leave and only have my 32' boat for storage I could not live the life I do now. Hopefully I will not have to totally bug out. But if I do I would think the local natives could vastly help with living off the land and sea. Maybe they could also help me find a first mate.

Qt of blueberries says you'd have better luck looking for a co-captain. IME a subtle change in thinking upfront can make an exponential change at the other end.

Hey Blue I don't quite understand your humor, but am sure it was meant in good taste. Thank you and good sailing.

Re: Vegan Liveaboards?

Well Blue I reread your note. So you think my introductory conversation may need a little tune up? Like maybe I shouldn't ask, "if they would like to get lucky on the first date?" Humm, maybe so, I will save that until the second or the magical third date.

One of my problems Blue is that as I am a senior citizen I do not feel I have a lot of time to wine and dine so must move fast. Like just the other day my cardiologist said I should not buy a lot of green bananas I am Joking of course and trying for humor.

I do travel with my best friend, he is not much help on the wheel, but radiates deep, undying, unadulterated love and loves to forage. His big brown eyes and wagging tail are always ready for whatever adventure I chose to pursue. And while his retrieved tidbits from the beach may not make it to the pot his intentions are good. Those folks who travel with their pets know what I mean.

I am out of her and will be heading for Port Townsend this weekend for the Wooden Boat Festival it is always good and I should get some real wind across the straits.

Take care, fair winds and stay safe. Sunseeker

My experience is that they like the wine and dine thing. Flowers can be a really good investment. The good news is most of the old broads women our age don't mind going Dutch.

Dutch is good but I prefer French.

You think you've got troubles? It's almost the end of August and I haven't partaken this month.

Yet.

My latest lady is 50, I'm not. .

When the market closed he asked me to come visit his farm. It got late in the afternoon so they asked me to stay for dinner. I tried to beg off reminding him that I was a vegetarian (it had come up in our talks about farming) and I didn't want to trouble them but they insisted saying No Problem. So went to dinner where the served a big plate of vegetables.... with a big piece of goat meat to go with it. So I ate the goat since it was the polite thing to do.
Funny you should choose this particular story. When I was writing my post about "missing out", I was really thinking specifically about a particular goat curry that I had in Jamaica - a thought that recurs quite often and will be a major goal on my next trip into the Caribbean!

Though I'm sure a vegetable curry could be made that would be just as delicious, my point was that you are much more likely to get offered a goat curry, and my suggestion is only that folks remain flexible enough to at least taste it.

Re: Vegan Liveaboards?

OK Blue, before we get censured we better cool it. My comments and I am sure yours are too are mainly in jest and meant to be funny. I subscribe to what I used to hear from a news commentator in the Midwest. Many years ago. His closing remarks always ended with the phrase, "That he believed all women are beautiful in their own way." And they are. But why do they always seem to go with the guy with the bigger boat?

I bet what the young studs are wondering is why I'm bragging about dating a fifty yr old. They'll find out if they hang tough as long as I have.

Re: Vegan Liveaboards?

What a great thread. I am a passionate culinarian- nutrition certified and follow a Paleo (caveman) diet, primarily nutrient dense veggies, nuts, seeds, berries - non-processed foods and lean meat.
The closer it is to the tree or ground the better. I think it was mentioned here and I agree - simple meals can be flavorful and delicious with little effort - using infused olive oils, dry rubs and seasonings - which are diverse depending on location.



Ciao Tish!
