San Diego is beautiful

After the rain the first morning we were here, the weather cleared up, and it has been beautiful here in San Diego. We haven’t been working too hard on the boat; we’ll do that our last couple of days on the dock. Instead we’ve been taking it easy, exploring a little in the dinghy, and relaxing. We haven’t used the West Marine shuttle yet. Instead we’ve taken the bike when we needed to go somewhere. This afternoon is the welcome party for the Baja Ha-Ha group, and we’re looking forward to that. We’ll probably shuttle with others on the dock.

When we got back from our dinghy ride the other day, Jammin had arrived. It was fun to see someone we knew. Hiatus is here on the dock too, and one of the other Sceptres came in yesterday. We’re also getting acquainted with the other Ha-Ha boats here, of course.

Most exciting is that my friend Martha is going to join one of the boats here for the Ha-Ha. I haven’t seen her in years, but we went to the U of A together and became pretty close. I did see her once since then when she was back in the States from Hungary, where she taught after grad school. She’s been living in Austin, TX, the last few years.
