An average day on a small sailboat. (Learning By Doing Ep143)
Hello, good morning. Good morning. What are you doing up so early? It's a beautiful morning. Sure it's beautiful. It's about 6.30, sun still didn't quite come up. We're in a beautiful anchorage and we had a beautiful night, it was a very nice night a little bit of movement just like when getting rocked in the arms of your mother when you were a baby I think, although we can't remember that. The squid boats arecoming back in. They go out fishing all night. I can hear their pop-pop engines just coming past, i'll go and show you that.
Yes you go back to sleep. this beautiful place sun's just coming up morning so we're at a village called perente and uh now these squid boats they go out every night there's about six of them here in the village six or seven they go out at sunset here's a few drone pictures from yesterday's absolutely beautiful they've got single cylinder diesel engines two of them on each boat and they just go out like roaring like it's pretty cool and they're out all night you can see their lights out in the distance all night and then yeah sunrise they come back in again yeah they have about 10 guys on each boat they'll come back in unload now and then yeah i guess they go and sleep for the day and then get back out there super cool place though here really beautiful place we're really enjoying it the villages are super friendly and uh yeah it's a real pleasure to be anchored here don't want to in the bed it's a beautiful day outside babe i'm sure but i have a little bit of time to go no no no it's the time to get up stop being a lazy bear we've got to get up we're going to clean the boat oh yeah yeah we've got to fix this we've got to fix that all of that yeah you enjoy your rest we're coming so maria's up and about now i'm about to get stuck into the day we're not actually doing much today but i just thought we would show you a bit of a typical day on uh the boat at anchor which is you know what most cruisers do most of the time we're not sailing every single day uh as much as i sort of like to you do just enjoy the places you're staying in and uh yeah we'll try and show you a bit of that today but it's still only about seven o'clock in the morning so we're going to get some coffee and breakfast and uh first i'll show you how we how we make kombucha so this is our kombucha here it's only a small one it makes about a liter this is a new scoby got the scoby when we got back from europe now and i've had two batches out of it i think so in here we just got normal lipton black tea i brewed this overnight and put a about three tablespoons of sugar mix it around and then you got to wait till this cools down and then just pour it in and yeah that's about it actually you just fill it up with water afterwards and that's it seems pretty easy it is very easy the scoby does all the work just just basically black tea sugar and some more water until it's full and then leave it about four days we normally do and then you've got a healthy awesome tasting drink and afterwards once it's brewed we sometimes put some slices of ginger in there or squeeze a bit of lemon lime in there as well yeah it's a good little tasty drink every morning for us what do you reckon i am less a fan of kombucha than vernon vernon is the master of the kombucha but i'm happy to drink a healthy drink every day so what are you doing in here i am doing my new episode of podcast i already recorded and now i'm doing the treatment of the sound to have a more pleasant voice now let me hear how it sounds like listen if your microphone is okay with i'll put a link in the description below for your podcast for any funko phone people who are interested yeah i'm talking about our adventures and my vision of the adventures and also some like fun facts about indonesia and stuff like that say this afternoon i'm gonna prepare bread because it's always handy to have a bread around especially when you are sailing it's a quick snack um so for making the bread i'm using dry yeast we don't have the the wet one and for away kit i'm using a little bit of sugar you can also do it with honey but actually our oni the one you saw in the breakfast of vernon has some ants inside and i'm not really super okay with that put a little bit of yeast for doing my bread i'm quite happy because when we went valley i found some other flour than just a normal white one we found in all the shops in indonesia so i can mix with a little bit of barley flour and i also bought brown it's the skin of the of the wheat to make it a little bit more brown brown and solid than healthy bread and for doing this bread i'm just using salt water from the ocean that's a good way of having a quick bread with the right amount of salt i'll mix a little bit this and i'm waiting then the yeast is waking up normally when it's ready i'm gonna see some bubbles i don't really have a recipe about the quantity i know roughly the texture i want to have so i'm just mixing a little bit of flour a little bit of water until i have something who looks good now i'm adding a little bit of the belly flour now a little bit of the brown i don't need too much to having the right color and a better bread now i think the texture is quite okay so i'm gonna just cover it and let it for two hours to let it rise oh super hot now while we're waiting for the bread to rise and put in the oven we're gonna go for a little swim over here on the rocks over there uh i haven't been there before i haven't actually snorkeled anywhere here there's so many fishermen around that we sort of always think that you know there's probably nothing at all living in the ocean here but you never know we're gonna have a look and have a cool down all right this looks okay the water's clear not sure how good the coral is but yeah we'll show you what it's like let's gear up the big flippers so i can swim like a dolphin you wanna swim with your t-shirt i don't think so today yeah it's a beautiful learning by doing t-shirts you're gonna have to swim with no no i'm not gonna swim this one link in this description below for this one and plenty of others the little learning by doing man that's on the sale now some tote bags pretty cool coffee cups and uh we're gonna have a competition soon probably in two or three videos time marie's gonna draw three different designs for new t-shirts and uh we're going to let you guys pick the one that we're going to make into a t-shirt and then obviously the winner will get a prize pack of that and a couple other things probably anyway that's uh that's a couple videos down the track when marie has time away from baking bread and sailing to do a good design hmm so so pretty cool one huh yeah i like it i never saw one like that what did the little part i'm gonna assume so i am preparing the dry tomatoes and the cheese barley cheese made in barley and it's quite good obviously we are super happy to have that on board we have some in the freezer i'm gonna cut some piece to put also in the bread i have to say here that marie is a bit of a cheese fiend she would eat the whole block for breakfast if we had a non-ending supply but it's a pretty valuable commodity here on the boat getting proper cheese now we're gonna see if the dew is bigger seems pretty good a lot of hair in make it a little bit smaller again the air getting out of the dough and after just bake bake it in the oven i can say that yeah that was the snorkeling just now it was not the most wonderful snorkeling but quite good to go outside see some animals and the spotted eel was really so fun so now i'm gonna let them grow a little bit again before putting in the oven and i'm gonna put some cuts on top to help them to grow correctly and now we are waiting right guys we are leaving tomorrow morning about four or five in the morning we've got a bit of a longer passage tomorrow um so i'm gonna get the boat ready for leaving now at sunset before it gets dark and uh yeah i'm gonna take the covers off and load the dinghy and i just realized in the last video about the sail i didn't really show the covers i just showed like putting them together but i didn't really get a nice drone shot of the how they actually look on the boat so i'm going to fly the drone quickly and show you guys that now and then i'll rip them off and we'll get the boat ship shape there you go so i see how cool they look and how fast and easy they are to take off by myself yeah super cool uh really stoked that um zoom sails did a good job with them they look really good too and yeah i don't know it just all sort of fits not like i'm a super i'm not so worried about the look of my boat but it does make me more happy when the boat looks good so yeah it's a win-win where we are right now is called brandy but last time you saw us in the last video we were still in lombok where we were just leaving lombok and in between that video and now we actually stopped in a couple of really cool places um we didn't really feel much so yeah we didn't make a video about those places we don't film everywhere we try and just enjoy ourselves as well as filming everything but i did film a few little drone shots of a couple of things that the one island we passed i just happened to notice on i think google something or other that it was the most um densely populated island in the world even more than hong kong so we didn't go ashore because there's too many people and now with covert lockdowns and all that it's not really not really happening but uh i sailed in close flew the drone over and uh yeah here's some shots from that it was pretty mad pretty cool uh to see he spot the tree basically not a lot to not a lot just take shade under there but uh yeah the the bajo people i think um basically come there and you know they go fishing they just live in their village and go fishing and then we stopped overnight uh that evening we stopped overnight for a couple of days in a place called potapadu this little bay and uh yeah as as uh marie was steering out through this little cut i just got some drone shots you can see here uh of that but that was a beautiful spot just because it's so calm in there it's you know here it's a nice spot too but you do get some roll and some chop coming in and roll around a bit but there it was just like in a lake it was beautiful so completely alone there no village close by and that's really nice too so yeah best of both worlds um anyway yeah i thought i'd show you those couple spots from the last few days so we prepared the fish we just bought in the village still have scale everywhere they were a little bit of pain to to take off the scale but we're gonna cook them for tonight and i think the bread is ready so i'm going to take off i can smell a bread yeah it smells good a little bit stickled together look at that they are not the most beautiful i think i have the pressure of the camera sometimes that looks better but i'm sure they taste good we're gonna peanut butter sandwiches when we're selling tomorrow no no peanut butter vernon is eating peanut butter all day long i'm tired of it how are you doing oh you caught me i'm trying the pizza bread got to do a test run maybe poisonous you know i don't want to put you in any danger babe i want to make sure that it's safe first okay oh i don't think you should try this your stomach's maybe a little bit too tender i might be able to finish it though i might just be able to get through it we can't waste food no it's amazing so good you want to try yeah i'd love to try hmm yep the crust is good taste the cheese and the tomatoes super good now nothing more beautiful but super happy well we've had some pretty awesome sunsets here in burnty i think four days we've been here three or four days and we had a crazy good uh sunset every day so nice and sunrise actually the sun comes up behind the coconut trees as you saw this morning in the start of this video and yeah the sun straight into the ocean over there so yeah perfect really and uh yeah i hope you enjoyed our little just normal day at anchor really uh just doing normal stuff i mean it's not terrible is it it's uh not terrible at all such a great life there's a bit of a bit of friction at the moment as far as uh covered and stuff goes as you probably know well we're we're actually nearly live now these videos what is the date today the 11th 11th i think so you know this video comes out next sunday so when you see it it's only a week old so we're right up to date and at the moment you know indonesia you've probably even seen it on the media it's pretty big numbers in in mostly in java but a little bit in bali so you know there's a lot of lock downs going on and they've put in some pretty draconian measures uh which are probably going to affect us but anyway we're trying to enjoy ourselves as much as we can in the meantime and uh yeah what do you reckon even if it's a a bit complicated i think it's complicated for everyone yeah exactly every country so we try to enjoy anyway and i like we are a little bit forced to do the things in the rhythm of nature and what we need on the boat and cooking and things so we never really have too much time to think about it we're just continuing to do the life yep yeah yeah we've got a nice 60 mile 50 mile sale tomorrow uh so i'll enjoy that and then yeah we got a contacted by a teacher from this place called kilo a man called uden he contacted me on facebook after seeing some videos and that's going to be our next stop and he uh does some projects with kids there's some projects outside of school you know teach them about plastic and he teaches them english and that so that's going to be the next video hopefully if everything goes well in that village when we rock up there so look forward to that i want to say thank you like every week but
