    Sitting in the cockpit having lunch in a TShrit .
    I remember now why all them years ago I decided on this way of life.

    I love a month or even 6 weeks on the boat but really miss London (other English speaking big cities are available) and actually would miss work. 6-9 months a year working and 3-6 months sailing and idling still suiting me but I know I that sailing is still a holiday rather than a way of life. Very glad you found out so long ago what works best for you.

    There not much I can say I miss .
    The top one is seeing my grandchildrens more offen , that followed by having a bath although I have known to get around that one by filling the dinghy up and floating on it , bubbles flowing over the tubes , a beer , while reading an old issue of YM , I do get some funny looks tho .
    What's I don't miss is the cold, people meaning cars day and night, TV, junk mail,driving,road and walking rage, this list could go on and on .
    One thing that sticks out being a liveaboard is how quickly you get to know other people in say winter stay in a marina , where when I was base at home East coast years and years in the same berth and other then the next berth boat owner I knew no one by name .

    Second best bit of a trip to the frozen grumpy north is having an address for some ebay cheap electronics to play with.

    Best bit is getting back to the boat

    The best bit for me being in the Caribbean is never having to do a UK winter. Sat in cockpit at 1715 with a rum n ginger, its 28degC and its January :-). Uk summers seem fine once you treat them as your winter.......
