A Day in the Life in Newport Harbor

Just one day at a glance, while chillin’ at Harbors in So Cal: french press coffee in bed, Kathy made egg/onion/tomato burritos, Scott changed out propane tank 1 to number 2 and we carry 3. Kathy went for a paddle to spy on the backyard gardens of the rich and famous, dinghy’ed to the beach for a picnic lunch and a long walk, bought 3 jugs engine oil at West Marine, napped in the sun on the bow.

Occassonally, with good internet reception, we watch a few Youtube episodes of “Gone with the Wynns” (a long and stressful journey sailing to New Zealand)
Had fun watching this 4 year old learn how to sail a Sabbat. His coach was behind him in a dingy giving gentle reminders.
Scott removed  some of the black caulk in the cockpit seating area that oddly enough started gumming up (great tool invention Scott!) We will hire Leonardo in Ensenada to re-caulk it.
Kathy does the bright work on Sea Bella, today she addressed the teak cockpit deck: repaired, sanded and glued a few small areas, cleaned both panels and re oiled them.
We stayed a night as reciprocal guests at the dock of fancy Newport Harbor Yacht Club since we are SLYC members (they were very friendly and had great showers!)
Visited with friends Ryan and Molly from Avila who were down in Newport in their Grady White for tuna fishing. They caught this big boy in 17 minutes! Ryan cut it up and we were lucky to sample the delicious sushi.
Scott picked up a replacement BBQ and installed it. The Magma will be better than the old Force 10.
The young couple anchored next to us on Bojangles came over for a visit (they will be cruising the Sea of Cortez this season, on a shoe string budget).
Kathy cooked some of Scott’s Alaskan Salmon for dinner, so yummy.
