After anchoring another boat came in and anchored a little too close for comfort, but we managed to make it thru the night without hitting. Unfortunately, at 5am when we were trying to leave that boat was positing over our anchor, so we got our first chance of trying to maneuver around a power boat and pull up the anchor all without hitting. A little stressful, but ultimately successful.
The trip down to San Diego was beautiful and we made great time! Two hours less than we had anticipated. We pulled into the public guest dock for them night and were thrilled to see Josh of s/v La Gitana already at the docks. We met Josh all the way back in Ventura when we were docked with one of the yacht clubs. It is always nice to see a smiling face when you land in a new place.
We are now anchored at the cruisers anchorage next to the Coast Guard Station. So far it is a pretty decent anchorage and if nothing else you just can't beat the unobstructed view of downtown. Feels almost too good to be true. Lots more to come on San Diego as we will be here for a bit doing repairs and re-provisioning, but for now enjoy some pictures of awesome things we've seen already!
