We left Monterey under a full moon and did the overnight passage down the Big Sur coast to Morro Bay.
The Morro Bay Yacht club was a nice stop - their Friday night happy hour was a pleasant surprise.
From Morro Bay, it was another overnight to Santa Barbara. We got held up by a rocket launch (yes, an actual rocket - they were testing an ICBM, apparently), but otherwise had an uneventful trip around Pt. Conception. We pulled into Santa Barabara to greetings from Sarah and Darrell on El Tiburon - they had half of an end tie and we promptly requested the remaining half from the office. We've been following them down the coast since Alameda - usually pulling into places just as they're leaving. We expect to do this again tomorrow at Catalina.
The view from our end tie in Santa Barbara:
The Channel Islands were gorgeous:
We're now in Marina Del Rey, with a good grocery store in easy walking distance and a side tie at a city park. Tomorrow morning, we'll leave for Catalina.
We are surviving the winter - hah!
