Xmas comes early

Living on a boat and getting ready for Christmas can be a strange affair but with a few pipe cleaners and a lot of laughter it is amazing what you van do, even if I had fallen over this week and hurt my leg.

The presents that we had got for Christmas arrived, so we shared what we getting with our viewers

I got a new camera, while Beverley got a blue tooth to radio convertor

My Camera

The key features of my camera are

  • Ultra HD 4K 20MP Action Camera - So better quality images if we want them
  • EIS Stabilization - So tries to keep the image steady, will remove the slight vibration we get from the engine when its on
  • 40m Waterproof case - but we wanted the waterproof case for the solar arch
  • Built-in and External Microphone - so reasonable sound quality
  • Go pro mount with lots of different clamps - This means we can attach it to different things

Beverley and I were amazed at what we got for the money and we were both really pleased. Of course we tried out the camera and we did get a bit of a fish eye effect but we can remove that if we want to, so we should be good to go. We are sorry, but although it was only a few weeks between when we bought the camera and the time I am writing this blog the camera has already gone up in price so wait for the sales and I expect it to go down again.

Making Christmas

When you live on a sail boat then you have very little space to store Christmas decorations, so being able to make them is great. So Prudence decided to make a snow flake, she tried her little best, but realistically it looked like we had aliens aboard, rather than snow flakes. So next we used pipe cleaners to make decorations. You don't need much space to store pipe cleaners so they are great and as a bonus, you can actually use them to clean pipes. The other thing we store is some really tiny Christmas decorations, so one piece of green cloth and a needle and thread and we have a really flat Christmas tree.
