04/29/2011, San Diego
As a cruiser, your sailing plans have to be flexible due to weather, equipment, the home front, etc, and this year, we had to be flexible but have great memories to show for it.

Tsunami on the California CoastDonna & Scott
03/14/2011, Oceanside, CA
Well, we now have been through a tsunami although we're glad to say it was pretty mild. Before Friday we had been through rogue waves, water spouts, 125 knot winds in Hurricane Ofa, electrical storms, being struck by lightning, and more but this was as close to a tsunami as we ever want to be. I attached a picture from the damage 300 miles up the coast in Santa Cruz, this wasn't us!!

We're actually excited that a small craft advisory was issued for tonight through tomorrow night. This means we can stay past our 72hr limit in Mariner's cove! More on that below.
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!
