“Yes, I’m really excited about sailing in this year’s Baja Ha Ha XX!”
In the meantime, it’s crunch time to get Seamore Pacific fully outfitted and ready to go. In time to enjoy a shakedown cruise to Catalina Island. Visiting Catalina became our ocean go-to place after moving to Phoenix from the Florida Keys. From San Pedro to Avalon it was always an anticipated boat ride of, “one day we will make this crossing in our own sailboat.” If all goes as planned, it should be in two weeks.
“No, I’m not ready to leave the marina.”
Shelter Island is beautiful, convenient, and a runner’s paradise. Followed by Catalina, it was our second go-to place to get a boat/ocean fix. We used to walk Point Loma for hours, lusting over boats and their gazillion year marina wait list. One could buy the boat but not have a slip to put it in. No way, did we plan to find Seamore Pacific in Shelter Island AND discover that marina wait lists are a thing of the past; after Arizona’s economy tanked a few years ago, the Zonis sold their boats, freeing up slips.
Yes or no, it is all very good and there is much to look forward.
Your cruising adventure starts with trading one good thing for another, leaving your Shelter Island home for the open sea. So excited to follow your journey.
Ahh Sandy- You speak words of wisdom. Thanks for the encouragement and being the first to post on Seamore Nautical Spirits.
Bon voyage Betheny! I miss you already. Give Katie and Dave a hug if you run into them on Catalina Island. xo
Sure thing Linda. I’ll give them a hug and say, “This is from your momma!” Thanks so much for your support.
This blog is better than any of the novels waiting on my bedside table to be read! Can’t wait to read more of your adventures, thoughts, experiences, Betheny!
Yeah, but you have Three Little Bears and Red Riding Hood probably mixed in your selection. The pressure is on.
And so the journey begins…..! Can’t wait to see all the lines that will be blurred during the Baja ha ha! Don’t forget to “drop” us a line when the mood strikes! I’ll be combing the beaches of Puerto Penasco looking for your message in a bottle 🙂
