After we left Monterey we decided to sail to Santa Cruz, which is just 20 miles across Monterey Bay. We dropped the anchor for the afternoon and planned to leave about 1900 for points North. The wind was predicted to lay down for the bash North.We took the afternoon to tour the boardwalk that has one of the old style wooden rollar coasters.
Even though it was chilly a lot of people were at the beach.
I am a sailor. Cashed it all in in 2003 and sailed around the NW USA then went to Mexico for two years then sailed to Australia on a Baltic 42. Sold the boat in OZ and bought a Privilege 42 in Venezuela. Not fully retired so have been doing the nuclear steam generator change out gig to recharge my financial batteries. Work 13-15 hours a day for two to three months. Make great money quickly so I can get back to the boat.
