“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.
