05 Nov Marina del Rey, Catalina Island, San Pedro, Newport Beach, Dana Point
Finally, on October 25, the winds died enough so we were able to leave Channel Islands and make our way to Marina del Rey! Did I mention that it was really hot the last week? We had a quick day visit with Trevor on Thursday. Sister Jean, nephews Nikki and Teddy Dale came and met us for dinner. Fun family time. Then Jean, whisked Trevor away to his friend Riley’s in LA.
Friday, we headed to Catalina Island for the weekend for some fun with friends. We anchored in White’s Cove for the first night and enjoyed cocktails with Hans & Dianne from Hurricane Gulch Yacht club. On Saturday we moved over to Cherry Cove and spent the next couple days with Hugo and Laurie. Hugo let us know that brothers Tom and Bob were coming to San Pedro for one night on the 31st. So back to San Pedro we went! (Thanks Cabrillo Beach Yacht Club!) So fun to see Tom & Bob, (thanks brother John and nephew Jed for dropping them off!)
On our way back to San Diego, we spent a night at anchor in Newport Beach. (It was a very nice small anchorage. We never got off the boat, it was hard to figure out where to go.) We had a beautiful sail back down to Dana Point and arrived back in Quivira Basin (Mission Bay) on November 4.
