We now on the move, lifted the dock lines and are now some
15 miles off Oceanside(33:11.081N 117: 36.386W) not much wind about 7 knots
from behind so we running the motor, we just put up the spinnaker for the first
time, still not much wind but Ed is having fun playing with the sail, as the
sun sets, it nice to get the sails up, as it looks like it will light breeze
tonight. So we will motor through the night to arrive in Ensenada tomorrow
We had an emotional farewell, for me leaving the harbor and
family, last night a farewell at the yacht club, and then today about 30 people
down at the docks, and then 5 boats followed us out. Garry Jackson (an old
friend) had most of the followers on board including Tracy and Sean and Alex, I
think it was really then Sean understood what we were up to, and that we were
leaving. Very emotional to say fare well after 12 years in the harbor and the
Rusty Pelican and where we started the family, but on the other hand it is good
to be on the way, as the last 2 weeks have been long days. Thanks to all those
who came out to say farewell it was really appreciated.
Stay tuned will add more tonight.
