Keith, do you drain your shower onto bare ground? ground cover plants? Gravel?
Since the area will be well watered it seems you could plant some herbs and stuff that would smell nice while showering. Maybe even some naturally cleansing plants that you could break off and use in the shower too.

Even though you are using propane I like the use of the crab cooker to heat the water. How many showers does a fresh tank of propane last?
Don't let your herb bed sail out to sea!
