Two things that I have pretty much left to my land life are pets and gardens, and they are probably two things that I miss the most. Not that I’m an expert gardener, far from it, really. It’s more the idea of gardening, digging in the dirt and whatnot. And as far as pets go, I know plenty of liveaboards who successfully cohabitate with four legged crew. But living with two little kids (and a husband, which kinda counts as another kid in some ways) in a relatively smallish space, I have a hard time with the idea of adding pet food, fur, vet bills, and litter boxes or walks to our already hectic life. I do miss having a pet though.
