Our first three days in Fiji consisted of provisioning (mostly me) and fixing things (totally Tim).
First, I baked/cooked all the necessities we’d run out of in the last day of the passage.
Cooling in the cockpit we have granola, cooked white beans for chilli, roasted Red Skinned Peanuts and not a Baker’s Dozen, which is 13, but maybe a Captain’s Dozen(?) of banana, raisin and walnut muffins. They were not yet fully cooled at time of photo.
Then shopped together. The next day I shopped alone and the last day I shopped with Zoe from Into the Blue.
Two negative Covid tests later, I appeared to have a nasty cold. I felt bad enough not to leave Larus and my coughing and sneezing was sufficient to repel boarders.
A week later I’m mostly better, but Tim woke up this morning with a scratchy throat. Zoe says Bill, on Into the Blue, has also woke up with a scratchy throat. I will claim responsibility for Tim’s scratchy throat, but the only people who actually came onboard were Philip and Claudia on Bruno’s Girl who we lured over with falafel last night.
Too soon to tell if that was a mistake. Fingers crossed they are both fine.
It is the pits to not feel like doing much of anything and running out of ready to eat food. We were up to our eyes with ingredients, had just finished our last frozen passage meal and our loaf of bought bread had gone mouldy so something had to be done.
Luckily I really like cooking and had some tried and true, new and interesting things I wanted to have a go at and that perked me up.
