Sunny and hot
WOW... what an amazing 29 hour journey. We left Coronado Cays Yacht Club at 0930 and dropped anchor at San Clemente Island at 0230 this morning about 300 feet off of a little beach at the bottom of a 2000 foot cliff (see picture). We saw two sunfish along the way, have you ever seen one? I never had until yesterday...they are a white circular fish about 3 feet in diameter, they lay flat on the surface and when we past them just a few feet away neither one made any attempt to move, although the one we past a few hours ago did raise one of his dorsal fins and wave at us us we went by. We saw a ton of military activity including a large super fast warship that put out a wake that had 8 foot breaking waves that reached about 1/2 a mile behind her. We also saw smoke on the water that we think was dropped by a couple of choppers that were practicing touch and go landings on another warship. The skys have been cloudless and last night the stars were unbelievable, the milky way spread across the sky and Mark and I were kept busy trying to figure out all the different stars. The ocean last night was oily glassy and with a nearly full moon and super clear visibility we had no problem watching all the other traffic in our area. As we crossed over to Catalina today I pondered how lucky I am to be able to be involved in this great creation.....the earth.
