Well it was not foggy but will still did not go into San Francisco Bay. We decided we would probably want to stop and explore for awhile if we ventured in and since we are in a hurry to get to sunshine we thought we had better skip it. Instead we motored on to Halfmoon Bay which we found out today is the pumpkin capital of the world. We continue to have very light winds so still not sailing much. We hope to be able to do more sailing from now on because our destinations are closer together so we can afford to go slower. We had a rather rude awakening this morning with someone knocking on our boat at 7:00am. Seems we anchored last night in the channel the boats use to go in and out of the harbor so the harbor patrol came out to tell us we would have to move. I vaguely remember some one yelling very early in the morning, something like " You idiot you are anchored in the middle of the channel!!" I thought wow I'm sure glad I am not that guy. Sometimes it is hard to know where to go out here because there we have no yellow lines to follow. Lots of fog around here. Thank god for our chart plotter because without it it would be really scary. We took the bus into the town of Halfmoon Bay and explored it today. They have a nice old mainstreet with lots of specialty shops. Every thing was very expensive so we did not buy anything. Next stop will either be Santa Cruz or Monterey.
