Another Day, Another Sail

Warm winter weather lured the Admiral and the capt out for a luncheon sail. It was sunny and clear, water a nippy 56 degrees and the wind was light. We popped the gennaker and made our way up the coast. There is still a lot of debris in the water from the recent rains but it was nice to be together on the water again.

Hoopin' Hikin' & Fishin'

Bald eagle on the hike to Silver Peak

Two Nesporados spent the week on Serenity Now enjoying the fantastic winter weather. The water on the front side was like a toilet from the rains. But Cat Harbor was the clearest I've ever seen it. We spent one night at Italian Gardens and four in Cat Harbor. Saw numerous bald eagles, an island fox and whales on the trip home. Hiked Ballast Point, Silver Peak and the road to Big Geiger from the Isthmus. Got skunked on the bugs. We were told they are molting in the deep water now, oh well, next time. Fishing was good for perch, white fish and sheepshead. Let's go sailing!
