Mission Bay to Dana Point, CA
08/10/2011, Dana Point, CA

Continuing to travel northward up the coast of California our next destination was Dana Point approximately 48 miles. We left very early on Wednesday am. Dolphins, dolphins, everywhere and not a camera to be found!!! It was exhilarating to see them and I did not want to miss the show while going down below to get the camera. They were so fast. It is so amazing how the sight of these creatures increases your heart rate, brings a smile to your face and a sense of childlike wonder to your life at that very moment. I hope that feeling never goes away. Wind again not in our favour so we motored on through and arrived around 6 pm. It was very windy and a bit awkward to anchor but we managed to hold anchor after dragging a few times. A lot of activity with kids sailing small dinghies, paddle boarders and general mayhem in the early morning fog. After winding our way through the traffic we set out for Avalon on Santa Catalina Island.
