SAILING, DIVING + Cooking in Paradise - BOAT LIFE in San Blas Islands | Harbors Unknown Ep. 77

This week we spend our time doing what we set out to do when we embarked upon this lifestyle; sailed, connected with a local who took us diving for lobster and octopus, and cooked a delicious meal onboard with the bounty. This is truly #boatlife at its finest! But of course it doesn't come without challenges.

Spending time with Tobias, a local Kuna, was awesome; he is an absolute fish in the water! It was interesting to see his home made tool for catching lobster is similar to our store-bought version; his is like the base model. :) The way he spotted octopus hiding spots was truly impressive. We would NEVER find them on our own.

Sailing the 12nm to Nargana, a small village just off the main land, was a breeze, but anchoring in the silty muck was another story entirely. The was the first time we'd seen a proper Guna village and it was fascinating! Tobias took us to a shop his cousin works at so we could buy some fresh produce. What a treat!

Back at the boat Fabio whipped up a delicious one pot pasta with the smaller of the two octopus, and cooked the larger one sous vide for 4 HOURS. We'll reveal what that did to our battery bank in next week's episode. :)

If you're new here, Harbors Unknown is the story of two dreamers, Kristin and Fabio Potenti, and our French Bulldog Yoda. We're a small family living aboard our catamaran, Wanderlust, sailing to Harbors Unknown. Exploring the world, connecting with people and places through the local cuisine, and showing how great food can be cooked on a boat with limited space and resources. Seeking to balance the desire to explore and travel to beautiful, remote locations while leaving no footprint, minimizing the Hawthorne effect of the observers who change the environment she or he observes.

We hope to inspire people and showcase the possibility of living an alternative lifestyle that provides freedom and fulfillment, all while keeping it real. Sharing the trials and tribulations of living off-grid, acknowledging the discomfort of detoxing from the modern world, finding pleasure in the subtleties of nature and joy in simplicity. Attempting to understand what makes the world tick and tock but also trying to gain a deeper comprehension of ourselves and identify what will satisfy that hunger for further exploration, for purpose. We have set off on our voyage sailing around the world, exploring the beautiful waters of South Florida, the Florida Keys, Bahamas, the US East Coast, and Panama.
