The cold front is acoming!Donna / Sunny but only for today
02/23/2011, La Playa, Glorietta bay and A-9, San Diego
We're back in A-9 which is the closest anchorage to the airport. Our kids come in for a week's visit tonight. Last weekend we put down two anchors to keep up with 40 knots of wind in La Playa. We actually had 96 hours there due to the long weekend. San Diego is very touchy about where and for how long you can anchor in the bay. The week before we used our 72 hours up at Glorietta Bay which is close to the famous Hotel del Coronado. The Coronado Yacht Club let us use their facilities so we had hot showers and laundry done!

So as Chicago freezes and Seattleites grow webs between their toes, we have enjoyed San Diego and Arizona in the last month and 1/2. Again, enjoying our bike trips and soaking up the sun.

Well, our plans have changed once more. Scott's mom Millie passed away this morning so we are flying back on the 25th for two weeks. Scott's making arrangements for the boat now so we can be there for the memorial.

The last blog was entered the day before we found out we had a fire in our home back in Seattle. So if we've been a little remiss on our sailing blog, you can forgive us.
