We can’t believe it’s been over a month since we left our jobs but it’s been crazy busy. Of course, we had to start with a little downtime so we spent some time at adult Disneyland aka Vegas. Since then it’s been endless weeks of getting the boat ready including adding solar panels and a wind-generator, amongst countless smaller items that I’ll detail on the boat page (one day). During boat work “breaks”, we managed to head to San Francisco for the America’s Cup (I can’t believe the US won), some wine tasting and sight seeing. Plus, we’ve had quite a few “final” lunches, dinners and drinks with friends –both local and visitors to SoCal.
However, now that we’ve got the boat in good shape (you never wait until the list is done as you’ll never leave), we’re finally getting off the dock. The Baja-Ha-Ha doesn’t depart San Diego until October 28 but we’re going to spend a little time at anchor in the Channel Islands then sail south to Catalina Island for Buccaneer Days and Cruisers Weekend before continuing south to San Diego with plenty of time to provision and fix whatever we’ve broken on the way..:-)
