With Alamitos Bay over the shoulder, we are headed back to Dana Point. Great 3 months - now we “recover” from the extended absence and get Victoria (and ourselves) prepared for Mexico in 3 1/2 months!

Not the end, just the beginning

It’ll be just over 3 months when we head home in a couple of weeks. From San Diego to Morro Bay and out to Catalina it’s been a wonderful trip. We traveled close to 1000 miles (code for considerable diesel....). We visited over a dozen yacht clubs - each of them was nothing but welcoming in every way. We are very grateful for their hospitality! It’s been a great test run in preparation for our intended trip to Mexico next year!

Hardly see our neighbors

It is foggy - off to Morro Bay where they claim it’s warm and sunny....

Port San Luis

Chip Prather | Cool and foggy
In Port San Luis for the night before heading into Morro Bay for a few days. Trip up around Point Concepcion, our first, was not much fun - Character Building I think is what the day might be called. Very Baja Bash like but with pea soup foggy and drizzle. Looking forward to some golf in MB.

Heading North

San Diego, Catalina and Long Beach were great. Heading to Santa Barbara with stops in between. Got fuel in San Pedro for 2.9 - exactly 0.07 more than last time - increase caused by 7/1 fuel tax increase!

Iridium test underway

Heading to Catalina and points north - how far north is dependent upon weather at Point Concepcion.

First Week Over

On a 3 month cruise around SoCal. First stop was Mission Bay Yacht Club - great place! Next was into San Diego Bay and, thanks to our friend Penny Delaney, a guest slip at the San Diego Yacht Club. Presently anchored in the La Playa anchorage - moving to Coronado tomorrow. Here for 2 more weeks

Into the bay

Heading to the Loews Coronado for a couple of days with a stop at the Coronado Cays Yacht Club then to Glorietta Bay and the Coronado YC. Great weather and some cool stuff happening in San Diego.

Spending a week in San Diego Bay bouncing about. Dinner tonight with Barritt and Renee (Senendipty), John and Gilly (Destiny) and Bob and Robin (Mia Amore). From here it's off to Catalina, via Oceanside and Dana Point, for Glenn's (Beach Access) 60th birthday party. Great weather and fun people! All good.

What a difference 1 year makes

Getting ready to take MissTeak over to Avalon for Thanksgiving and, while suffering from a very serious bout of NMB (no Mexico Blues), I wondered what was happening with us 12 months ago. A quick peek at the log showed us anchor down in Bahia de Tortuga along the Baja headed south. I floated the idea past the admiral of tossing the lines and heading back - best I could achieve was Avalon for Thanksgiving which isn't a bad outcome especially with this monster El Nino on the way. Oh, and as should be expected, a BIG blow is predicted for SoCal Wednesday so we're heading to the island on Tuesday.....

Extra:
Not sure what's ahead for us. After 41 years of owning sailboats and sailing MissTeak on 3 extended trips into Mexico, we sold her and have purchased a powerboat. We're planning to spend the next several months learning the boat, building inventory and getting used to the roar of twin 450hp [...]
