I sailed under the Golden Gate bridge Sunday, September 15 at 0600h but it was shrouded in mist and not the sparkling sunlight from a rising sun that I had hoped for. Sausalita was my destination after that. Not far after going under the bridge, clear blue sky was breaking out there in the distance. By the time I got into Sausalita Bay and dropped the hook, it was a beautiful clear sunny day. It has lasted a few days now.
I sailed down the coast from Ucluelet, where I waited for crew for a few days to help me take Anestina down the coast to San Francisco. Our first stop was Astoria, Oregon. Everything went well on passage.
It was an awesome experience cruising down the west coast. Such beautiful inlets, coves and coastal towns. I truly loved it.
