Move over Jason Mraz, we've got a ukulele and we are NOT afraid to use it!

A lot of people ask us what we will do with all our "free" time on the boat (aside from maintenance, reading, writing, swimming, provisioning, repairing, snorkeling, exploring, enjoying etc. etc. etc).

We'll learn the ukulele of course.  DUH.

Yippee!! A teeny tiny guitar!!

Scott bought this little baby yesterday and I am so so so sooooooooo excited about it.  I'm not sure why, but I foresee HOURS of entertainment with this thing.  Move over Jason Mraz, Scott is already working on a ukulele version of  "I'm Yours".  And it's good.  It's reeeeealll good.  He might even pick up a fedora somewhere...just sayin'.

Furthermore - I dare you to think of a more cliche appropriate instrument for the islands.  Okay, besides the steel drums (which, incidentally, Scott has looked into buying - I said no.  For now.). It is perfect.  Absolutely perfect.

As if that wasn't enough, he also bought one of those things to mount a harmonica on so that it sits in front of your face.  If I didn't know any better, I'd think Scott was getting ready to start a one man long as he doesn't end up like this guy - I think we'll be good.


Yeah.  Something tells me we will have plenty to entertain ourselves with.

Brittany & Scott

Bongos have been a thought for us! Would love to see (and hear) a video of Scott playing the ukelele... just sayin'.

A Bodrhan wouldn't be a bad instrument. It's the small Irish hand-held drum, cool sound!

I really like musical instruments, especially ukulele and guitar. so when I see your friend's post I really like it. I was looking for a guitar now, I was introduced to a famous guitar shop in the area where I live, but I don't know if this is okay, hope everyone can see it. This is the product link of the shop Yamaha F310 Acoustic Guitar . Thank you for your help, wish you all a nice day.
