Under Way for San Diego!

Good morning  from aboard Ellie.  We are under way for San Diego and expect to be in protected waters before dusk.  We pulled anchor at 0430 early this morning.  The conditions are calm and Alyssa just whipped up a delicious breakfast, her famous huevos rancheros. We’re about to lose our internet signal, but we thought we’d check in. The lights of Avalon are to starboard; it’s really a beautiful picture at night. We are really going to miss this island. We’ve anchored around Catalina for almost 2 weeks and it has surpassed expectations with calm protected anchorages, amazing diving, clear water, and great people.

We will be fixing our broken watermaker and installing a new pactor ssb modem while in San Diego.  We’ll update you all on progress sometime in the next week.

Have a great day!
