Catalina, where it all began...
02 September 2011 | Little Harbor
We have officially crossed our outgoing path. We have come full-circle as we find ourselves comfortably anchored in Little Harbor on the backside of Catalina. We spent our first week together here after getting married and enjoyed the peacefulness of the secluded little bay. We hiked the hills, saw buffalo & deer, BBQ'd on the beach, practiced our archery and relished in our new found freedom.
We're back again, and have found not much has changed. We reminisce on those early days just starting out, wondering what adventures lie ahead. Could we really pull this off, sail across the Pacific, make ocean passages, spend weeks at sea, keep Freedom & our dreams afloat? We've discovered that answer is YES. We have done it, lived it, cherished it and will never forget these past 3 years. The places, the friends, the storms & the beauty, the challenges and the palm trees, and the serenity.
Next stop will be our home port, San Pedro. And now we wonder, how we will fit back in to the hectic pace of the busy society we so happily slipped away from. Only time will tell, but we find comfort in knowing that Catalina, the Channel Islands & the Ranch are not too far away for us when the urge strikes again for some island time.
