Moving Up To Mission Bay
23 January 2008 | San Diego, Ca.
After staying on the public dock on Shelter Island, we plan to move up to Mission Bay for the next few days. Shelter Island really was a fantastic place, and I enjoyed staying there for the weekend.
We are in major "clean up" mode and have been working hard to prepare the boat for our Saturday arrival. We've also been working on a few mechanic projects which went quite well yesterday. While pulling into Isla San Bonitas (on the outside of the Baja) the engine's impellor failed. Four small pieces of rubber were sucked into the engine's cooling system and Chris FINALLY got them out yesterday. This was a huge relief even though it took the majority of the day to get them out. While Chris dug through the engine I polished and waxed the cockpit, companionway, and foreward topsides. It was quite a job, but Cisnecito looks great with shiny lines and glistening edges. Julie spent her birthday resewing our line bags and they look great. Cisnecito is really coming along and looking fantastic.
Last night I went to an impromptu Club Med reunion party which was a total blast. It was so fun to see some of the people I worked with and became quite close to. Of course everyone looked like a million bucks and are doing quite well. The highlight of the night was watching American Idol as a group. The funny thing is that half of the group could easily make it to Hollywood (if not further) as they are all extremely animated and talented individuals. I forgot how fun is to be around such unique and fun characters. Although we talked about doing a few crazy signs before dinner, we all decided we'd better not.
