Stories of our adventures, and things.

Breakfast at the Marina

Morning has broken and we decided to head down to California Cafe for breakfast. A quaint little restaurant with a nice staff. Plenty of good food on the menu. We ordered eggs and sausage for me, and an omelet for her. We wait and she is intently playing on her computer. We'll do a review …

Sailing to Catalina Island

We sailed out this morning at 7 and took on about 10 gallons of diesel.  Not a lot of wind today, but we did manage a few hours of actual sailing.  More to come along with lots of video on our Youtube channel! Posted from WordPress for Android

Catalina Island Early December 2012

Wow, what an adventure it was.  Not always fun, but ALWAYS educational. We decided to sail out to Catalina Island earlier last week.  The calendar was clear and there was no work coming in because of the holidays, so we had the time and the boat was in good shape.  we had plenty of food …
