We left Gig Harbor, WA in 2009 and spent 3 winters in the Sea of Cortez then sailed to the Galapagos Islands, French Polynesia up to Hawaii, then to San Francisco Bay. We are once again enjoying the Sea of Cortez as we plan our next adventure.
Feels like home
08/05/2009, Newport, OR

We're still thoroughly enjoying our stay in Newport -- that's right, we didn't leave yet.

There is a low pressure area moving up from California bringing south winds and we are just waiting for the NW winds to return before heading out -- and it now looks like that should happen about Friday or Saturday -- so that's when we'll leave.

I'm actually glad the weather kept us here because we've had a great time walking the town and beaches and sightseeing. We aren't in any hurry to get anywhere -- roughly we planned to be heading down the California coast in September getting to San Diego in October, but even those dates aren't set in stone. So we're just enjoying where we are for now. The one thing we are looking forward to is a little more sun, however. While everyone we know is dying from the heat back home, we have been shrouded in cold fog for the past week!

Just last night while we were watching a DVD we realized something that always struck us while we were out cruising before -- when we're down below we forget that we're someplace other than Gig Harbor. To us that's the best part of cruising: no matter where we go and how much our "back yard" changes, at the end of the day we are simply at home.
