Black and White Wednesday


On board Steadfast, water conservation is a big issue.  
Sailor showers are designed to use as little water as possible.  
Hose down.
Turn off the water.
Soap up and scrub.
All done?  Rinse.
Turn off the water and check for drips.
Some books say a good sailor shower uses only a cup of water.  I don't read those kinds of books!!!

The bigger the sailor, the longer his or her hair, the more water they seem to need.
This little sailor had three baths a day--in a five gallon bucket!

No showers for him.  He loved a 20 minute soak.








He looks so content!  
I love his two-year-old-sized polarized sunglasses and hat as he relaxes in his "tub".  His "heat lamp" is the blazing Bahamian sun.
