Police DockChris Mays

We arrived in San Diego and tied up to the police dock. Customs and Border Protection just finished checking us in. We had to throw away our fruit and eggs but that was it. They did not even ask about the gallons of Madagascar rum, Brazilian cachacas, and South Africa bubbly. I guess they have more important things to worry about like terrorists and drugs. Fortunately we do not have either of those aboard.
Run For the BorderChris Mays

We made it! Just crossed the border in to US waters for the first time in 3 years. It feels good to be back! We are headed in to San Diego harbor where we will tie up to the police dock to wait for customs and immigration. Barring any unforeseen eventualities and if we can find it we should be on the dock before midnight. I guess it is time to hang the "Q" flag from our starboard spreader for the last time during this cruise.
Destination U.S.Julie Mays

It's hard to believe that our next port of call is the United States. For three years now, there has always been that allure about the next port - a big unknown. We read about it and have pre-conceived notions of what it will be like, but getting there and discovering things has been one of the most fun parts for me.
