Made it to San Diego
We left Avalon around 5am and got in to San Diego around 4pm. No wind to sail, but it was a nice, relaxing trip. Doug had two poles in the water and didn't even get a bite. He was even using his lucky lures. Oh well - maybe on the way to Mexico.
As soon as we docked the boat, we wandered around looking for a nice cold beer. On the way, we stopped to visit our friends Jess and Shanna (ex-Gate 11'ers) at the Farallone Yachts. We had good timing - they were heading the same way and took us out for Swordfish tacos - very tasty!
We have a fun-filled weekend planned here in San Diego. Besides all of the last minute provisioning, we have been invited to a party this afternoon on a 72' yacht! I can't wait to see it, plus the rumors are that there will be wonderful food and drink served. We are going get dressed up for this one - our good shorts!
Tomorrow, Doug has to go to a skippers meeting for the Baja Ha-Ha. Then the Baja Ha-Ha rally throws a big Halloween party - costumes required. It will give us a chance to meet all of the other crazies heading south.
I will be sure to post pictures of both events before we leave!
