Home sweet home
03 December 2010 | Coronado
After being gone for nearly two weeks it's nice to be back home on the ball at Coronado. I had a GREAT trip, of which I single handed all except the short move from Dana Point slip to DP anchorage which Yvette helped me with. I had lots of visitors met many new friends and of course had plenty of adventure. My big accomplishment was the fact that I did single hand Si Bon in many different situations, I docked at unfamiliar docks, I anchored in unfamiliar anchorages and I furled and unfurled the sails in tight areas. I soon learned after buying Si Bon that my dreams are not my friends/families dreams and if I want to make my dream of cruising the Central/South American coasts come true, I better be able to handle my boat by myself, in whatever conditions the good Lord throws at me. This is good advice for everyone, that if you have a dream...don't count on someone else to make it come true. One funny thing that I only realized last night after returning, it was one year ago Thanksgiving weekend that I found Si Bon at a dock in San Pedro, made a lowball offer on her and had my offer excepted within hours....what a year it has been.
When at sea, you're never really alone.
