Good surf & great friends. Does it surprise you that our planned weekend stop here lasted over 2 weeks? We are having so much fun, we find it hard to leave. It turns out that 3 good surf friends from the Pedro high school days live here and shared with us so much Aloha Spirit we just can't move on. We've had day after day of fun waves and we've been BBQing up a storm each evening with our good friends from Pedro: Pete Sebastian, Theo Murphy, & Kevin Garnier. Its like old times, dawn patrolling the surf, big meals with friends, late nights, songs, music & lots of laughs.

For the first time in two years, we're in a marina slip with shore power & running water, what a luxury!Even better, there are four fun surf spots within paddling or walking distance from the boat. Waters are so warm and one area is perfect for beginners, so Kelita has been sharpening her surfing skills and shredding the waves everyday, as you can see in the photo above. To her right is our new crew member, Raymond Fowler, who is also mastering his surf skills. Ray sailed with Rob for years before setting out from CA and will be crewing with us back to California when we cross the Pacific in July.

So, up next is a quiet little harbor on Molokai where we'll spend a few days relaxing and surfing the waves just outside. Then, we're off to the big city, Waikiki, Oahu to prep for our crossing. We'll check in from there next. Hugs, Kelita & Robert.
