Galley Kitchen In Paradise
|This is the whole kitchen|
We've been living here for one year and eight months. I haven't blogged about our beach living as I had wanted to after moving in, but 2020 came along. Writing was the last thing on my mind. I haven't written any books either, I attempted and got 7k words, and they were junk. I deleted them. So I've been taking all kinds of online classes for writing, marketing, and travel. I've accomplished a lot so I'm not sorry.
Before we move again (hopefully this summer), I figured I'd get in a few blogs about the place. The kitchen in our small "paradise" is galley style, and it has no drawers. I've never seen or had a kitchen without drawers. And we've had a lot of kitchens in 20 years with the military. We've lived in 10 different abodes, and only once did we have a large kitchen. Not sure what attracts us to the places with small kitchens, but it seems to be a thing with us.
Here at our beach apartment there is very little counter space, no pantry, no microwave, and a few small cabinets, but we do have a dishwasher! That's always a plus.
To make up for the lack of space, we have a bakers rack and a buffet table (with drawers) in the next room, and we have makeshift pantries in the kitchen; one is a cubicle style cubby (that used to hold Mike's toys and books), and the other is a metal shelf unit.
The next kitchen can be small, but I prefer room where you can be in there comfortably with another person, or two.
Oddly, the kitchen window brings me joy. It's small and it's so high up that I have to stand on my tippy toes to look out, but the fact it's there makes me happy. And it has a ledge for me to put things on.
So that's it, that's the tour of our tiny kitchen!
