Mums the Word

Sunday May 10- Happy Mother’s Day! Beth had sent a beautiful orchid that was delivered to the marina yesterday by a local florist!

Morro Bay is a National Estuary with several marine mammals including Sea Otters.

We departed The marina around 11:30am. Traveling about 30 miles we anchored for the night near the Hearst Ranch Winery in San Simeon Bay.

The Hearst Castle was slightly visible from the water, on top of the hill surrounded by fog.

For dinner grilled a pork loin roast, served it with roasted brussel spouts and sweet potatoes.

Monday May 11- The anchor was up by 7am. For breakfast Joy baked a crustless quiche. It had lots of veggies along with some bacon and ham.

Sailing north up the California coast with a nice southerly breeze with the current!

Big Sur Lighthouse

Our plan was to anchor at Arrowhead Point, holes 6,7 & 8 next to Pebble Beach Golf Course. With a strong south wind of 25 knots true and rolling waves, it was not a good situation to anchor. So we rounded the corner to Monterey and got a slip in a marina.
