Sunny San Diego
18 January 2008 | Shelter Island, San Diego
We slept in until 9am simply because it was too cold to get out of bed. But before long, the sun was out and it was the warmest we have felt it for some time now.
We moved the boat from the Quarantine dock over to the Public Dock next door. We got a slip for next to nothing, and apparently we are lucky because they are usually all full. There are hot showers, water and electricity on the dock and we are able to stay for ten days - really quite a deal.
After a good scrub of the boat, inside and out, Chris and I walked around Shelter Island which is absolutely beautiful. If I were a foreign boat and arrived to a public dock and surroundings as nice as this, I would think I just landed in heaven. As for Chris, he is in heaven. There are more marine services than I think we have seen anywhere - ever. Don't get me wrong, I'm always game for a good marine store, but there are also a few hair and nail salons calling my name.
We are sitting in a very cool coffeehouse called The Living Room that actually quite feels like one with sofas and tables everywhere. It's cozy, there is high-speed internet and great coffee, so we are pretty content. Even though it's Friday night and we feel like we should go out on the town, it's very possible we may not ever leave.
