We Have Moved Ashore
13 December 2015 | Port San Luis, CA
July 23rd, that sure seems like a long time ago now. Seasons change, High school football season starts and ends, and here we are still in the Port San Luis Boat Yard almost 5 months later. If we make the 6 month point we might as well change our PO Box back to Avila Beach and epoxy the jack stands holding up the boat to the hull. Sure the 10ft ladder isn't exactly fun and we keep getting sympathy emails and posts on Facebook, but the truth is it just isn't really that hard to be here...on the hard. It doesn't help that FatCats Cafe is just 50ft away but for those keeping an over/under pool we are really getting close.
In fact, if there wasn't currently a winter storm smashing into the boat haul/launch slip we would have already launched and headed back to Morro Bay. The boat is ready and we are not just waiting for calm seas. Of course the joke is that with the super El Nino this year we would be here until May. But the truth is "here" really isn't that bad if you forget about the $30/day is is costing us to remain in the boat yard.
We may have moved ashore temporarily but even Cortez is looking forward to feeling the gentle swaying of the boat beneath us again at night.
