We have pulled in originally in Dana Point's marina in order to buy some groceries, refuel the tanks, and say hi to Rod's parents.

The weather forecast is too strong for Rod's taste, winds at 25-30 and gusting 35-40 knots.

We decided to stay put here for the afternoon and evening, and take off during the night if the wind goes down.

Good to be able to stay anchored, eat while taking our time, take a good shower, and maybe even a nap!!
