Today we are in Crescent City, in northern California waiting for weather to travel south to Mexico, joining the Taco Run in San Diego! We are traveling with another Nordhavn, 5505 named Red Rover, friends Alison, Kevin, Zoe and little Max. On board Red Rover are Laura and Kevin of Slowboat fame.

We left Shilshole Bay Marina, WA on September 11 after spending a couple of weeks completing boat maintenance, upgrades and provisioning. Our first stop was in Port Angeles, then Neah Bay before our big left turn South! At 11:30 pm (Dark!!), we departed Neah Bay to cruise to Grays Harbor. This was my first overnight travel. My daughter Eileen sent me a text “you got this mom” which became my mantra for the cruise. We arrived in Grays Harbor after crossing the bar (quite terrifying!) at 9:30 pm (Dark Again), 21 hours from when we left. After two days in Westport, WA we then cruised into Crescent City, CA arriving 11:00 am (daylight Yah!), September 21. Sea Quake Brewery greeted us shortly after with cold brews, on tap!
