Sandy getting cozy in bed aboard Lady Slipper. Surrounded by Black & Decker electronic repellers. Hopefully this will be night 2 of no roaches.

Sandy is comfy in the bed. The futon takes up half of the v-berth. Forward is the anchor locker and windlass that should only need a battery. Our clothes bag and Sandy’s pet bed are also forward.

Steven pulled down the salon table and we found our enemy. Squished! This is what we have been dealing with for the last week. It’s the most disgusting thing ever. 5 nights sleeping in the car and 3 bug bombs later we may get our first restful night tonight. So far only dead roaches have been spotted.
