Merry Christmas, Everyone!

This Christmas, I'm going to Southern California. I'm going to get some stuff done that I need to do, then continue to do what needs to be done.
My friends have reserved us a buoy out on Catalina Island for the New Year Celebration. Before, and until the 29th, I will be in and out of every single marina from Coronado to Santa Monica. Please, PM me if you have a good Wood Boat Tip for the area.

I will try to keep some sort of...... SALTY

I briefly saw STAR OF INDIA today while I was doing some site surveying. Going back over there tomorrow when we have more time to do the whole tour.

A couple more boats that are there too:

Unbelievably, this schooner was trying to sack the town. Not sure, but I think it is the replica ship CALIFORNIAN (http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Californian_(schooner)):

And then we briefly stopped and saw this boat on our way down the coast last night. We were on ou way somewhere else and will stop and check it out more thoroughly on the way back up as well.

Thanks for the pics.

I am stricty sticking to the water side, Brian. We wont talk about the view to the east!:)

Speaking of cool, everyone is all bundled up in their jackets and long pants because it's in the sixties. Meanwhile, my new shorts I bought last summer are working out great! I even spluged for some new RayBans today.

There should be plenty more to come, Cris.

Somewhere in my bag-o-tricks I have the lines and sail plan of STAR OF INDIA. Got it in the gift shop at a price shocking even for a Southern California gift shop.

Gift shops arn't usually the best place to find me. But I'll have to check that one out, Blighty. Thanks.
