    Excellent, gentlemen! Iím two beers down. Now Iím waiting for Mike Pyzelís office to open. Hopefully I can sponge off his wifi. He doesnít know Iím coming, so maybe a ruse? Am I looking for a surveyor for my potential Morgan 43, the one w the tub?

    I wouldn't try that ruse if you're within earshot of DM. I was always careful about that with Rags.

    ...waiting for the Pt. Concepcion tale with bated breath!

    Beer. Hm... Now, that sounds like a good idea.

    Dura Mater and I were good at anchoring in the Delta ... where we were all alone. Anchoring in a small slash in the cliffs w seven other boats? A whole different kettle of fish. But here she is, in all her dignified grandeur: in Fryís harbor, Santa Cruz Island.

    Despite what others may tell you, my sprint phone service did not extend outside 5 nm out, so here we are eating sushi at the Santa Barbara marina. Again.

    A sail slug came undone so weíre trying a beefy zip tie. And a small but obviously important littebit on the windvane has come undone again, so there is that to consider before bedtime. More important than a shower, I think. Because really? Itís only us.

    Hereís what we saw just outside Frys Harbor. Cool if I had a better dinghy.
    Back again

    Great fun following this. Excellent pictures and report. Hope to be up there in the next week or so, isolating in such anchorages.

    Thanks, Lee! I saw a beautiful boat, just like yours, tucked into Ladys Harbor. All I know is that it must have an obedient reverse gear, because there seemed to be mere feet between its hull and the cliffs on either side. Looked like it was a comfy fit.

    No wind? No problem. Dura Mater and I are motorsailing over to Angel Island tomorrow, tucking into a slip, shooing away the sea lions and then hiking. Leave those boat projects for another day, bring your leftover pumpkin pie and c'mon out!

    No punkin' pie left but this is stirring some interest. Google says the hike to the top of Mt. Livermore is "strenuous." Is that what you were thinking? Schedule?

    I finally got the new alternator re-installed and it seems to be fine. Balmar never said what caused it to go bonkers - hopefully it won't do that again.
