Race Rock Lighthouse
You probably don't want to spend the night here.

This would be a double dog dare... to spend the night place.
Next time you're in St. Augustine, take a lighthouse guided tour.
And the ghost tour by night.
Return and Report:
Bonneville's Catalina Adventure Cruise
October 21 - 24, 2015
On our October 24 return from Catalina, a short radio transmission was heard over our VHF.
The Coast Guard was asking anyone close to the Long Beach sea wall to be on the look-out for someone in the water. An EPIRB had been activated in that area, but was not registered. We never saw anything. But who knows...sometime stuff happens.
Doing a boat "check out" of our Bavaria 46
Great winds makes for a nice crossing under sail. We all took turns at the helm, while Chris made up some excellent chicken salad sandwiches on Croissant buns. The food was great.
We went ashore each evening to sample Catalina's great restaurants.
Morning in Two Harbors is always beautiful.
An unexpected gem of an anchorage.
Little Gibralter offered warm waters to explore underwater rock cliffs and open beaches.
Not another soul around.
Once back on board, lunch was waiting and we continued on to Avalon.
There always seems to be something happening in Avalon.
Dodging freighters coming back into Long Beach.
Our GPS recorded a max speed of 10.6 knts on the return to LB. I wasn't fast enough to catch that one. Our real time speed of 9.3 knts is under reefed main and 70% head sail. He had some great "fresh" breezes.
A bit disappointing coming back in to protected waters and the hustle/bustle of the big city.
Red, right returning.
Take me home country road . . .
