Navigating the Sea of Life
On a recent post, I made a note that I think in order to stay young we have to learn something new every day. We have a dear friend who after she retired took painting lessons. She continues to amaze us with her talent and we are delighted to own some of her work.
I am trying to learn some new things about how our boat operates. These things come so easily to Steve but often remain a mystery to me. I am currently trying to understand the AC/DC electrical panels and will offer up my simplified explanation when I have it down more solidly.
While writing the other day. I looked up the Snuba system. I discovered a new word while making my inquiry.
PORTMANTEAU: A word blending the sounds and combining the meaning of two other words
Snuba is a combination of snorkel and scuba. Podcast is a pairing of Ipod and broadcast. Brunch–breakfast and lunch. I am sure you can think of more of these types of words.
So there you go. A new word learned today. Trying to stay as young as possible
Can you see why I enjoy our early morning walks so much?
We are going to be doing some island hopping for a few days which means no internet and probably no posts for a few days. Hoping I have some great new pictures and inspiration for new posts.
