Greetings All,

Hope this finds everyone well. Tom and I are at the Morro Bay Yacht Club and have been here since Friday morning.

While in San Simeon we went out for what was suppose to be an uneventful kayak ride and turned into a big challenge. Things were going just fine, Tom and I both made it to and from the beach without rolling our boats but on the paddle back to the boat the wind picked up and caused a small swell and a big challenge getting back on the s/v Sandpiper.

Early the next morning we picked up anchor and headed out for Morro Bay. It was an uneventful motor sail until pulling into Morro Bay. The fog started to get real thick and it's a pretty tricky harbor to pull into. We made it to the Yacht club and were greeted by our friends Ian and Heidi and their two little ones.

My friend Johanna came and picked us up friday afternoon and took us to the famous Taco Temple, oh man was that good food, warm chocolate bread pudding made from a crossant! Friday night was happy hour at the club, met lots of great folks, these Yacht clubs are really working out great for us.

Tomorrow were casting off for the next port, Port San Louis, a four hour sail from Morro bay. After that is the big jump around Point Conception or "The Horn",apparently, quite the tricky sail.

The weather looks like Tuesday is going to be a good day for us to take on this challenge so look for a posting after that.

Love to all,
