worlds shortest cruise
10 November 2010 | Glorietta Bay
Yesterday I decided to leave my mooring ball and go to Glorietta Bay for three days. Glorietta Bay is a distance of a little over 1 NM from my ball. Glorietta Bay is a very quiet, well protected cove, I have a view of the Hotel del Coronado(see pic) one way, the Coronado golf course another way and a high end marina yet another way. So why did I decide to do this very short trip...a few reasons, first it gave me great practice in single handed anchoring (with a little coaching from Robert), second it is a beautiful little cove that has almost no rocking motion (unlike my ball) and besides if I wanted to stay in one place all the time I could have just kept my land based house and missed out on all of the adventures I am now enjoying.
I am able to anchor for free for 3 days a week with a max of 9 days per month...so I will be staying here a lot over the next few months. Anyone who wants to come visit and save themselves the VERY high cost of staying at the Hotel del let me know:-).
