We have left San Pedro after two days. It was a great stop because Iris has many friends there. So Iris was whisked away from the boat for errands and a sleep-over and I had Desert Vision all to myself one night and was able to get quite a lot of boat maintenance accomplished. The second night we had guests aboard for a fun evening of partying before our cruise to Catalina Island the following morning. It was really great to see so many friends all together that I hadn’t seen for a very long time.
We have since migrated to Catalina Harbor on the little island of Catalina. The water has continued to get warmer and clearer and the weather is getting warmer as well. We are anchored on the Pacific side, at an isthmus toward the middle of the island so it is only a dingy ride and a short hike to Two Harbors on the opposite side of the island.
Two days ago River, Greg and John (who flew down from Portland that morning) pulled into the harbor. Thus began the partying on that evening! Yesterday involved swimming around Desert Vision, hiking, and later on, drinks with Greg at the little bar in town. On our way back to Desert Vision we rescued River and John whose dingy engine had failed during their attempt to meet up with us. This was followed by drinks and dinner on River and Greg’s 52 foot Tyanna.
We like it here where we have reasonable protection from winds and swell so, barring any sign of the soon to be expected Santa Ana Winds, we will probably stay here about a week before continuing south.
