Looking for a Catamaran Cruising Blog?

If you found this blog via a link from a cruising site ~ we did cruise Mexico on our Ocean 49 cat for a season. See the first text box on the right for links to our preparations, trip down Baja, life in Mexico, cruising and trip back up to SoCal. Unfortunately we are back to the grind in the USA...

Quiet Nights in The Ventura Harbor

It's very quiet here in the harbor at night without the mullets "Chew chew, smack, slap, bang, BANG" and the coromuels blowing all night rattling the sunshade and fenders.
So quiet I can sleep.
Except for the never-ending socializing...
Dinner on this boat which includes wine ~ duh.
Dinner on that boat which includes wine.
Cocktails on the dock wine is a cocktail too.
Cocktails and dinner on this boat more wine.
Cocktails and dinner on that boat wine is still a cocktail.
Lunch with her ice tea.
Lunch with them ice tea.
We will weigh 300 pounds but will be well rested...
No complaints on this end however~~~

Sounds dreamy. Bet it's good wine too after having to struggle throught the overpriced wine in Mexico. We used to bring down as much two-buck-chuck as was possible and hoped and prayed customs wouldn't dig too deep.

I like to hide my wine under dirty clothes or some girly underwear. Then if I get the red light I stare at the customs guys as they paw through my stuff. They get a little flustered...
We were sweating big time when we checked this boat in at Ensenada - had cases and cases of vino, cerveza, Scotch - you name it. Five people for a month together on a boat require a lot of supplies...

The liquid supplies enable you to ignore the wind making the rigging sing. Well, they always did for me...
