Our journey has taken us even more northward to our boat in Alaska. We are roughing it, so to speak, living in a 6×6 galley while we build our spacious 10×12 room on the back of the boat. The project isn’t without it’s unforeseen problems and unforeseen joys.
problem: boat starter just fried….we need this to move the boat to fill up water tanks and fill our diesel stove to keep warm….eeek this just happened today please pray as we figure out how to deal with this.
joy: cooking and living in a 6×6 is strangely soothing…kids are playing happily at their spots at the table and we even made a wall christmas tree with lights! everything is forced to simplify and slow down.
problem: it’s cold all the time! our sleeping quarters are actually below the water line of the boat so its extremely hard to keep warm and super expensive…
joy: sun rises at 10am and sets at 4:30pm and they are the longest sunrises and sunsets I’ve ever seen and seriously so beautiful!
We miss you all and the warm weather (especially me)!
Prayers and calls and texts are appreciated…I will try to keep everyone updated here or maybe I will start blogging or something.
ok much love
Danielle (for the other Flackers)
