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...

Week in Newport Harbor

Well, quite the exciting week in Newport...
Uh, let's see.
I actually got up early enough to see the sunrise one morning!Mainly because we had to move the car early due to the street sweeper...
We spent the entire day on Monday driving in a giant circle.
From Newport up the Coast to the Oxnard / Ventura area, but due to time contraints bypassed everyone and just went to the family ranch in Somis to get Jim's vacuum pump out of our storage.
YEA - the refrigeration is going to be fixed!
Then from Somis to Castaic to the home of the wonderful Carter family ~ bro-in-law John, Caitlin who had just had her braces taken off that morning (eek, I didn't get a photo of her beautiful smile...) and Evann who played the cello for us.
They are kind enough to allow us to park our two vehicle there while we hop around the harbors and anchorages of SoCal.
And were even more kind enough to drive us back to Newport Beach!
Thanks again awesome bro-in-law!
So we bought them dinner.

Uh, what else?
Refer got fixed!!
Been spending a lot of time with Alan and Susan (Jim fixed their refer too and installed a new head)...
Susan is happy!
They brought JR one of several grandchildren over for a visit.Nice, well-behaved kid.
He can come by anytime.

Uh, what else?
Eating, reading, laundry, watching boats go by.
Today Susan will give Jim a haircut and take me to the grocery store.
Then it is off to Catalina Island tomorrow!
