Santa Monica Pier
25 September 2010
Well, we have been sucked into the Marina monster, and are enjoying, dock power, hot showers, laundry, pools, shopping, and yes warm weather. I t is probably going to be over 80 today, and yesterday was also warm. We have officially made it whooooo.
Yesterday we rented bikes and biked the famous venice beach area. The sub culture there is very strange with homeless hippies, and surfers, tattoo parlors, and pot shops, skaters, and beach bunnies.... surrounded by foreign speaking tourists who are getting a strange perspective of America!
But lest you think everyday is a vacation, today is boat cleaning, laundry, dingy repair, and outboard maintenance. We also have a loose wire in
Connies reading lamp. I have recrimped the wire but apparently there is another loose connection. Imagine if the wiring in your house was constantly shaken, and vibrated (from the engine) and left in a salt air environment? I am here to tell you it wouldnt stand the abuse.
....I can just hear all the sympathetic groans out there...... you are right I wouldnt trade places with you land lubbers.
We are planning on moving out to Catalina island on Monday for a few days
