Trying very hard to keep all dust and debris out of the boat. Thus the amazing suit and sandals.
If you managed to make your way out to the water this past weekend you found very large surf at the beaches with strong undertow warnings all around. But, interestingly enough, the seas offshore were nice and calm. Took a group out to Paradise Cove in Malibu for the afternoon and had a wonderful time. Jet ski, dinghy, and some jumping off the upper deck! Extremely humid and sticky in the marina. Feels like Florida! Most likely from the storms down in Mexico but we may be in for an interesting winter boating season.
California has seen some interesting weather over the last few weeks to say the least. We have witnessed Florida-like conditions with humid, overcast days and warm nights. We have had thunder storms and even people getting struck by lightning. Somehow all of this whilst in the middle of a huge drought. There have been some beautiful days thrown into the mix and I have tried to take advantage of all of them!
Last weekend at Catalina was a blast. It was the annual rendezvous for Marina Harbor Anchorage and Esprit Marina. About 60 boats went over to Two Harbors for some food, games, and a great weekend. Saturday was very pleasant with some sunshine and a temperature of approximately 70 degrees. Sunday morning consisted of a steady 15 knot breeze an overcast skis. The breeze ofcourse died out as we headed home. Overall, a great weekend and nice to get back to Two Harbors.
This week has been a bit manic with the sun poking in and out of the clouds. The seas have come up a bit and we are getting a consistent 3 feet with confused swell out of the South and West. Not sure if we will be heading out this weekend but hoping the seas sit down a little bit.
Overall, a run of interesting weather to say the least. Looking forward to a beautiful September and October. In fact, last year the season went all the way through December. We will see what we get this year!
