TWO YEARS AGO

Yesterday we commemorated the passing of Jackie Riley, a true lady in all respects. There was no wind and the sea was as flat as a lake. The sky was clear, the natural colors were radiant. We just floated, barely moving, watching the sun set and talking about Jackie. It was a precious moment for a precious women. "Here's to those that wish us well..."

SOME DAYS ARE JUST BETTER THAN OTHERS

Light winds today, time to pull out the gennaker (genoa spinnaker sail hybrid). We cruised down the San Clemente coast and did a u-turn around state park. Beautiful day, much warmer than yesterday, enjoyed by all, I think!

IT'S GETTIN' CHILLY

It was a clear, brisk November day today as Van Bro and Amy joined us for an afternoon and sunset sail. It was Amy's first time on Serenity Now. I think she liked it and we may see her again. As the sun moved closer to the horizon, it got cooler and then cold. Despite the chill we had a great day on the water. Let's go sailing!

CATALINA IN NOVEMBER

The Admiral and I headed to Avalon for a little R&R and a week in the sunshine. Oops, the weather changed. Long story short, after two nights on the island, we made our way back to Dana Point today. Oh well, better luck next time...and there will be a next time.

The icon of the island.

A very uncrowded Avalon.

Our sunrise this morning.
