San Diego to Catalina
14 May 2012
We enjoyed San Diego and met our new friends Cherie and Mike. Cherie and Mike picked Dan up at the airport and arrived at our boat with a picnic lunch in hand. We really appreciated that. Cherie then dropped Mike off at the airport and Shaun and I at Vons. She waited an hour and a half for us (reading her nook) and drove us back to the boat. Thank you so much!!
We left the next morning to head straight for Catalina, versus up the coast to Oceanside first, but the winds were 27 knots steady on the nose, which kicked up waves that were really rough. We endured, the guys caught a fish, and we arrived Catalina Island at 8:30 at night. Took us 14 hours instead of 10. The harbor patrol met us at the entrance and guided us to a buory where we have spent the last two nights.
We are headed over the Two Harbors as we speak.
