Shutterbug and T-Bone, the creator of the Emerado, wandered their way to K Dock in Dana Point for a very mellow afternoon on the water. After a false start on The Big Easy, the right vessel was located and the fun began. Light air, sunny skies, snacks, laughs and a warm breeze made for a great day. The afternoon was capped when T-Bone tried the SUP for the very first time without getting wet! The night ended celebrating two b-days at the Harbor Grill. Good times with good friends.

Seven nights at the island, secluded cove, warm days, cool nights, nice water, ukulele, fishing, snorkeling, laughing, stand up paddling, great meals, swimming, talking to some long-time island friends, swatting flying insects, watching some really funny stupid things people do...this is how the Admiral and I celebrated the 30th anniversary of my 39th birthday. It doesn't get any better.
|The fire near Santa Barbara produced some beautiful sunrises.|
|Five nights were spent here in Big Geiger.|
|The summer solstice moon rising.|
|Wow, what'a ride!!|

Sailor Brinn and the Birdieman joined us for an afternoon sail along the San Clemente coast. Mellow and relaxing is probably the best way to describe the day. Fun, fun, fun.
|Birdieman was right at home behind the helm.|

What a wonderful way to spend an afternoon with great people. Nothing better than watching a youngster having fun and discovering news things. The Professor, Ms Laura and Sailor Phin, joined the Admiral and I for a very enjoyable get together.
|Some dolphins joined us for a while.|

|Went out with five, returned with five...phew!|

She passed! Yesterday we had the voluntary VSC, a very thorough Coast Guard Auxiliary inspection of the boat's safety equipment and operating systems. The process took almost two hours but it was well worth the time.
|Getting into the nuts and bolts.|
|Checking all the PFD's.|
