A big thank you to who came to help us celebrate this fabulous day. We couldn't have asked for it to go any better or be any more beautiful!

Spring Break 2013!

07 April 2013
We can't believe it is already spring and the month of April! It's getting scary how fast time is zipping by. Our two week break has gone way too fast as well, but we got some time in away from the dock, so guess we can't complain too much!

We started out with a fun visit from Jeff and Kathi from Bold Spirit. They left their boat in Fiji for another season and flew home to spend time in the states. We are so happy they stopped by San Diego so we could get together. We spent a couple of nights on the hook in Glorietta Bay rafted with John and Renee on Rubicon (formerly from Scarlett O'Hara). It felt like we were back out there cruising. Notice the Hotel Del in the background of our picture!

After a night in Mission Bay, we headed out to San Clemente Island to get some diving in, but 30 minutes after we got anchored, the Navy asked us to leave because they were going to be doing live fire practice. What we could say?!! So we decided to give up on the diving and head to Catalina. The water was too cold anyhow - not very inviting! We spent a couple of days in Avalon, then went to Two Harbors. We were surprised at how empty is was. We thought there would be a bunch of people out for Easter, but other than the weekend days, it was very quiet. We met a very nice couple (Kathy and Jeshua) who hiked the entire island from Avalon to Two Harbors. It was fun hearing about their adventures and we played some pool together at the Harbor Reef. From Catalina, we headed over to Dana Point for a couple of days, then down to Oceanside, and then back home. It feels good to be back - now we need a vacation from vacationing!

Merry Christmas!

As part of the festivities for the Tahiti / Morrea Rally, we got to take part in an outrigger canoe race.  This was right before the race as they were announcing our canoe!

Who said dinghies are just for the water!  This flying dinghy was fun to watch both in and out of the water!
This dinghy is easy to beach - just fly it up on the sand!
The beautiful mountain on Moorea right where the ferry comes in.  There is a key hole near the top.  We thought it looks like an eel head coming up from the bottom of the sea!!
The ferry harbor on Moorea.
Our welcoming committee!  We crewed on "Warm Rain" and they came in first place!

If I were going to really be on my own in an outrigger, this is the type I would want - no tipping!!!
This will be our new home when we get hauled out!  You can see the lift that will be hauling us up and out.
Quite the contrast - lots of outrigger canoes taking part in a very serious race and the giant ferry coming out of the harbor - you would have thought they could have planned it a little better!
