There’s No Place Like Home

Published by under The Adventure

I can’t say that I missed (or even thought about them) while in Mexico, but that corn dog sure tasted great!

Jackson Browne Afloat at Humphrey’s

Published by under The Adventure

In the dink, floating with 3000 other dinks outside of Humphrey’s in San Diego, listening to Jackson Browne with David Lindley.

This is heaven.

Sunny San Diego . . . .

Published by under Boats,The Adventure,Wylie 39

The last few legs were pretty amazing–the stretch from Turtle Bay to San Diego was filled with adventure, some really beautiful anchorages–and, some long miles. I will be posting more details of the trip in the next few days.

As for right now, I am in San Diego at the Transient Slips adjacent to the SD Police Docks. The sunshine has finally come out, and I am in the midst of all of the chandleries, harbors, marinas, and yacht clubs of San Diego. It is pretty amazing! (I even scored a ride on a Tripp 40 for the Wednesday night beer can races).

I’ll be here for a few more days to finish the repairs to Marishanna, and then I’ll be back at sea for the remaining legs to San Francisco. In the meantime, I have an internet connection and some work to finish . . . .

Baja Bash: Departing Turtle Bay in a few hours for Cedros Island North Anchorage

Published by under Uncategorized

According to Don Anderson, on the S/V Summer Passage, on the Southbound HAM Radio Net, the weather is going to be good for the next few days–as in, 10 – 15knots with mild seas. So, around 3am, I am weighing anchor from Turtle Bay and heading to the North Anchorage of Isla Cedros to anchor near the Sea Lion colonies.

Spent today getting ready: the dinghy is stowed, everything on-deck is secured, 6 more jerry cans of diesel fuel (and the tank topped off), 30 gallons of purified water, and food stores replenished. We are ready to go . . . .

I am not sure what the Internet reception is going to be for the next few days–but, I am on the last leg to San Diego.
