Day 0

September 30, 2011

We did it! I can’t describe the ellation I feel right now as we bob around at anchor in Horseshoe Cove. We set the anchor around 4pm. With the sails already tended to, the only thing to do was flip up the solar panels and tidy up the lines. Then we all retreated to the cabin for coffee and UNO.

We expect to get an early start to Half Moon Bay tomorrow, and then (weather permitting) continue on to Monterrey Bay on Sunday. Our original plan to go to Hardly Strictly Bluegrass this weekend was scrapped in favor of making some southbound miles before bad weather fills in early next week.

    I was just looking at our pictures from Maine. I can hardly believe we were hanging out with your family such a short time ago and now you’re on your way! It seemed like such a long way out when you first started talking about it. I don’t know what nautical wishes to wish you, but I hope your adventure contains only surprises of the pleasant variety.
