We are still in San Diego and hanging on the Laurel Street mooring. We plan to join the HA HA in late October. It is very noisy during the day due to CG and the airport . We try to visit other anchorages when we can. The A1 and A5 are both good to get some quiet.
Nice display of local craft on the mooring despite the noise.
By sunset most nights the noise abates and all is well.
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.
