One of the great challenges with open dinghy cruising is feeding the crew, which usually means just me! I connected with a friend who has created a great collection of recipes and he shares them along with his amazing life story. Paul was a relieving lighthouse keeper in the 1980s. He went to stations all over New Zealand taking over from the permanent keepers when they took annual or sick leave. You can get the book here and also help me fund some more great videos on dinghy cruising.
In this book he describes the job, workings of the light, shipwrecks, search and rescue, weather, communications, anecdotes. For each of the 10 lighthouses in the book, from the Hauraki Gulf to Fiordland, he tells of the local food available and his own recipes for cooking that food.

I recently started a group called Boomers Refired, where we share ideas and inspiration for fellow Baby Boomers who believe the best is yet to come. We had a big part in making the world what it is today, and I think we have some explaining to do before we can leave it a better place. 10,000 days left to fulfil our purpose and leave planet Earth a better place. Your welcome to join us if you feel led in that way.
