I can't help myself. When I see a solitary boat in a cove
my mind starts leaping through, where did it sail from, where is it bound, how did they choose this berth and those
all lead to the perpetual question, what would it have been like to sail into a new land for the first time?
BTW sailing this part of the California coast is tricky and dangerous, so anyone putting into San Simeon has navigated some difficult water and shoals.
SPEAKING OF THE WATER
A dear friend visited from the Washington DC area recently. Before coming he inquired about swimming in the Pacific. He and I have both shared the Atlantic chill, but when I told him the average water temperature was mid to high 50's he opted out. Hey Frank-look at these guys-
--they are either too young to know better or from some
northern clime, where 59 degree water feels good!!!!
My thanks to the BBC and several friends who suggested
this video would make a great WEEKENDER :) treat.
IT REALLY IS A WONDERFUL WORLD
Thanks to Sir David as well.
Enjoy the weekend.
See you down the trail.
