A Little Information


I haven't looked at 'The Queens" lately, but I feel like I'll be getting back to that in a few days. I've been working on that other story that I told you about. I have been struggling with what to feed the crew. I know I'm giving them far more to eat than most did because most of those images that we have in our heads are wrong about how a sailor lived, but I can't seem to help it.

So I tried to track down something to help me scale it back a bit, but after seeing how bad it was, I feel that I should save some/most of that for when they are doing an ocean crossing.

I found this drawing that I felt like sharing.

Pssst! Open the image in a new tab or window so you can zoom in to read everything. It's too big for me to show the original size here. 

Be grateful that you can eat veggies and fruits.

BTW, my story has a shaky date of about 1790-1850. Yeah, I haven't nailed it down and in an odd way, it helps me. I have a lot of events to pick from and since it's fiction, I can do what I like. I'll just have to put a note somewhere saying that even though I use names of real places and events, this is fiction, so some facts most likely have been altered. :)
