All of us are different and live many various lifestyles....
What we would do would be :
1. Live some place that does not require shrink wrap. Actually where no one even knows what shrink wrapping a boat
2. lowest temps for us, in the 50's or maybe high 40's at night and then up to the 60's and 70's during the day. Sunshine, or rain, both are predicted beginning later today.
3. Also, where heaters work
. Even tho we are in south orange county , calif..between L.A. and San Diego
and at 4:00 am it is bloody cold out, very low 50's, and every heater
in the house is on. In on board, we would be on shore power
with the electric
heaters blasting away.
5. Start the day, by going to the gym, and really warm up with a good work
6. Then, come home and fix breakfast, hot "cookies and cream " protein and berry and banana smoothie. With a bowl of hot oatmeal, eggs and hashbrowns and hot tea, coffee, or hot chocolate.
7. Run any close by errands, and get all that was planned for another day, out of the way, so that we can get out and enjoy the sun on the usual shopping
day with longer drive errands, and washing
the car, or a fresh water
wash down of the boat
, or fix stuff.
8. Coze in with a good adventure book , or write your own, or maybe a fun log of your past sailing adventures. Call or maybe email
friends up dates on how life is going and plans for the holidays and the new year 2019 travel plans, local or far away lands.
9. Might not be possible with the OP...but select a good NETFLIX movie
, and let the outside cold be cold and wet, and stay warm and cozy.
10. Late afternoon and evening, bundle up a bit, and to to the near by harbor restaurant and bar and get there before happy hour ends, and back up a couple of adult beverages. Jameson hot whiskeys do a fine job of warming up everything. Have fun trading sea stories and tall tales .
11. Evening, return to the warmth of home, maybe watch an NFL night game
if sunday, monday or thursday and then snug in under an extra blanket and get a good nights sleep while the rain gods pound on the roof or overhead. Or insert the required ear plugs and enjoy the peaceful quiet.
Also, get into more planning for the next cruise
to paradise, where the sun is shining. Ours is back to the BVI
in May, and checking out which anchorages
, harbors, marinas
, bars, and first and last night hotels are now open after the two hurricanes.
Just plan and experience your day as to what feels good to you .
Stay snug, stay safe, and enjoy positive and rewarding endeavors.
