Sailing around Pt Conception

Good Morning from S/V Little Christian: Sailing on Nana's Big Ocean Blog.

Today we will leave Morro Bay and sail around Pt Conception.  It is sometimes compared to sailing around Capt Horn, I certainly hope it is not like that today.  We have been told that after this the winds and water will warm up and things will be easier to manuver than they have been...we'll see.

Don has it all planned out and I am up early to stow our kitchen and table items so they won't fly around the boat. Also making some meals ahead so we can eat without cooking if it is rougher than expected.

I am looking forward to getting warmer winds and weather. There has been alot of fog on the coast all summer. We are surprised, here in Morro Bay we have only seen Morro Rock one time and this is our 5th day in the harbor. 

Yesterday I did laundry and then went to the 2 bead shops here.  One was owned by Paula Radke, she is the guru of dichroic glass beads and it was fun to visit where she sells her glass.  Of course I purchased something, that is part of the fun.  I also found a unique fabric shop called "The Cotton Ball". They have beautiful designer fabrics and really beautiful quilting fabrics too.  I purchased a kit to make some silk clutch putses that have some silk ribbon flowers on them and beading.  Very nice.

My coffee water is ready time to put some coffee in the french press and get this blog wrapped up.  Oh by the way we are viewing a filming of the Bonnie Hunt TV show on Monday.  We will dock the boat in Santa Barbara and drive the coast to Culver City.  That should be fun I love her show which airs in Yakima on NBC mornings at 9 am.
