Sunday October 30th. A Busy day.

We had an unusual colorful sunrise before the fog set in. dsc_0059 dsc_0062

John and Jen took me back to the anchorage in Glorietta Bay. I avoided blowing up my dinghy to get to shore last Wdnesday and received a ride from the Seattle couple, Jeff and Cathy, and managed to hitch a ride back from the boat ramp. I got back to the Police guest dock at 8 p.m. Now I have to get ready for this afternoon’s kick-off party for the Baja Ha-Ha.

Be sure to check out last Wednesday’s Lectronic Latitude-38.

If you don’t know Jack — Jack van Ommen — you’re going to want to meet him at the Ha-Ha Kick-Off Party on Sunday. He’s the epitome of how much cruising you can do with so little.

    Jack: Just finished reading SoloMan. Incredible journey. Linda and I met your at Encinal Yacht Club at poolside this past early October. That’s when I bought your book. My eyes are bleary this morning after finishing up that few pages late last night.

    Linda and I visited Holland and Belgium this past Spring…so I recall some of the locations that you note in your book. I was also in Vietnam in 1967-68 stationed at MACV Hq our at Ton su Nut….so many memories of my time in Vietnam.

    Will be following you on your blog as your journey continues.
