What did you wish you brought?

As many of you know, I will be leaving for the Bahamas in about 10 days.

What is the one thing you wish you brought? Other than alcohol?

We've been in the Bahamas since the end of February. Fresh stuff (veggies) can be hit and miss, unfortunately you can only carry so much. My suggestion would bring your comfort foods, coffee, any personal stuff and maybe cheeses or happy hour snacks. We saw a 2.5 lb. container of mixed nuts and it was $30.

Greetings,
Ms. D. We're heading off to Alice Town Tuesday AM. Ask me in 8 days or so just to remind me. I've already scoped out the bakery so that takes care of breadstuffs and cinnamon buns. I suspect you should have lots of sun screen and sun burn medications. A suggestion from previous visits to the Bahamas. FIRST THING, find the local bakery and get there early in the morning (the good stuff sells out fast).

A breadmaker. Use it to make the dough, then finish in the oven. Also to make pizza.
Wine, unless you want to pay $40 a bottle for decent. Or start drinking captain and coke!
Walk around your kitchen at home and consider things that you use regularly, and if you don't have one on the boat, take it. Especially your most used pans.
Look at the clothes you have readied, and halve it.
Take something to do. There may be days that you are stuck on board all day. Knitting, cards, scrabble, DVDs.
A good pair of scissors.

After a few cruises the boat has pretty much everything on it that you need. Leave it on board. For next cruise it is simply bringing aboard perishable items and replacing stock consumed.

The second part of this is to be strict about removing anything on board that has not been used in a year. Except tools and spare parts!

During my 3 month cruise last year I seldom needed to visit a marina, but I did a few times. The biggest catastrophe was when the Nespresso broke. I had to resort to emergency supplies of instant coffee. Before my next long cruise an extra coffee machine will be added to the spares inventory!

Same as going to bed. Take a good book, or someone who has read one.

Wifey B: Nothing that we haven't taken but a couple of things we'd suggest not overlooking or understocking.

Plenty of suntan lotion. Whatever you think you'll need + 50% more.

A medical kit.

After dinner evening entertainment. And, I'm not speaking of what a lot of you are thinking although that is quite pleasurable. Things like movies or television or music or reading or all the above. Just something to quietly do while you relax.

Donna, as one who has never made the trip, I'd be very interested to hear more details about your planning, and the actual trip itself. Have fun and be safe.

Donna, will you be doing a blog about your trip or anything of the sort? I'd love to follow your adventure.
I'm insanely jealous and so excited for you! Will you be traveling alone or is someone going with you?
I hope you take and share lots of pictures with us!
