The admiral and I found the west anchorage empty yesterday afternoon as we dropped the anchor and settled in for the evening. The conditions were perfect for a peaceful night and a beautiful sunrise this morning.

After todays Rotary meeting, Sir Thomas, Welby and the capt honed their sailing skills off the Dana/San Clemente coast. The weather was perfect and the wind was a consistent 12-16 knots. Good times.

There were a few Nesporados missing in action for this years get-a-way but El Jeffe and the capt made the best of it. Scorching air temps and 74 degree water made the diving and swimming very enjoyable. Sailor Jerry, Jackpot, Ranger...next time!
|We had Willow Cove (Jim's Spot) all to ourselves.|
|Jim joined us for a brewski on Saturday. A Canadian, he has been living on his boat for the past 6 years and has been exploring Catalina and the other Channel Islands.|

September is proving to be prime island time. The days are sunny, the water is warm and the fish are biting. The Admiral and I spent a night on the hook at Hen Rock then it was off to Howland's Landing for the rest of our visit. The destruction at White's and Buttonshell from the storm Marie was not pretty.

This weekend is a busy time on the water and today was no exception. Hundreds of boaters enjoyed a sunny day off Dana Point. The bridegroom battled the traffic to join me for an afternoon sail and to soak in the rays. The countdown to the big day has begun.
