Getting Settled

Phew.  We finally feel like we're "home".  The past couple of days have been really busy and tonight marks the first night where Scott and I have been able to really relax.  Everything is unpacked, the to-do list is down to almost nothing, our social calendar is empty and we're feeling pretty copacetic right about now.  Bob Marley is serenading us on our new speakers, the smell of fresh lilies (a "boat warming" gift from Travis and Emily) fills the air, and we're both stretched out on our starboard settee - legs all entangled - catching up on our respective computer work.  Home.

Aside from the insane amount of projects we have completed to make this boat our own (more on this list later) we've added a few accent rugs, some art and all of our personal effects to add to the "homey" feel.  It's great.  Isla's little room in the v-berth is all set up and she loves it.  Moving to a tiny wedge of a space for most kids might be downsizing, but for Isla (who has been sleeping in a closet the past eight weeks) this is a major upgrade.  Not that she would care much either way.  As long as mommy and daddy are around her, this child is a happy camper.

We also cooked our very first meal on the boat tonight by breaking in our new Weber Baby Q grill.  Scott, an excellent engineer in his previous life, designed a superb boat mount for this particular grill for Weber and while it's not available to buy just yet, it should be in the near future.   Suffice it to say we're stoked to have the prototype which allows us to have something other than a Magma grill, which pretty much has the monopoly on boat grills.  I might not be a good cook,  but I LOVE to barbecue!  I predict we'll be using this grill more than our oven.  The salmon, peppers, potatoes and squash we made tonight were de-lish.

Consider these beautiful photos the "before" shots. Then when Isla has taken over in a few years you will look back and wonder how it was ever so clean and empty! Enjoy!

Thanks for the tip on the Weber Baby Q, a grill in on my husband's Christmas list. And while my husband is also an excellent engineer, he's a chemical engineer, so do you know when Scott's prototype will be for sale (I'd love to support you guys) and can you share a picture of the mounted grill before the prototype's release? Thank you!!

@Anonymous - sorry, but there is no date yet for the release :( I will post a picture of the new mount in the near future!! But the baby Q grill is AWESOME. Seriously the best little grill I ever owned!
