Digging Santa Cruz. It’s the California of my imagination
OK, this anchorage is just too damn bouncy. Moving on some more.
Paying my severely reduced but still utterly maddening fine to US Customs.
Had a great visit to the Asian Art Museum in SF. Lots of beautiful buddha statues. http://www.asianart.org/
Negotiating foreign transit systems to head into SF today.
It’s easy to get used to having friends in the anchorage. Entertaining on board is fun!
Back from great dinner with @dougkaye
Still looking for cool SF area events for the weekend.
Taking the boat over to San Francisco tomorrow. Hope the early afternoon Bay sailing is good.
So… what’s good to do in SF this weekend?
Sending my appeal letter to US Customs.
At anchor in San Francisco Bay.
I think we’re in an upscale anchorage - check out the neighbours: http://tinyurl.com/4od444
Enjoying walking along the highway in Fort Bragg. I keep forgetting that there are places where no-one walks anywhere.
Why does the forecast always change for the worse? Sailors-always unhappy with the weather.
Looks like we’ll be in San Francisco early next week. Who’s around?
The forecast has become very strange. Wind speed & wave heights are all diminished, but NOAA has added warnings in big scary red letters.
Giant trees managed to stay hidden. Those trees are stealthy. I’ll try again tomorrow.
One more try to find the elusive trees today.
Off to breakfast then to go look at really giant trees.

Gale is over, so we’ve pulled into the docks to get some shore time. Yes, that means groceries! And hopefully a visit to Redwood Nat’l Park.
So far, riding out a gale at anchor is surprisingly pleasant. Like lazy winter Sundays where you never get out from under the blankie.
Having a day off - lazing away at anchor while the wind and rain blow outside. Feels great!
