Catalina musings. Rusty Buster. Vendee Globe sinking mystery

No two trips are ever the same.

Catalina Cruise #11 completed
March 15 - 18, 2017

The new (huge) Fountaine Pajot 44' barely fits into the slip, at Rainbow Harbor.
A beautiful new cat from Marina Sailing, getting checked out for our
March 15 - 18 Catalina trip.

The master suite. Sailing in style.

Day 1
On our way to Isthmus Cove (Two Harbors), hundreds of Dolphin crossed our bow,
as well as two, big, fast moving freighters.
Our AIS worked "as advertised".

Harbor Reef Restaurant was a welcome relief after a windy and bumpy crossing.

Day #2
For a small country store, we were able to find last minute items...

including sharks tooth necklaces.

Discovered this self serve, 24/7 gas pump, to top off our dinghy gas tank.
$6.20 a gallon

The morning sun showcases how recent California rains have blessed the island
with beautiful green hills.

What are the odds?

Another Fountaine Pajot just happened to be leaving Isthmus Cove, bound for Avalon, the same time as our departure. If you have two sailboats in the same proximity...
you know what that means!

The only thing more fun than racing sail boats,
is hangin' with Thayne and Jim.

Low morning clouds eventually vanished under the suns warming rays.

Time for lunch.
Chicken Tortilla soup on rice and chips and salsa.

The always welcoming landmark of Avalon. The iconic art deco Casino.

Time to get this party started.

Jim and LeeAnn and then Thayne and Moni walkin' on the wild side.
