Things have been slow lately. We are finishing up our Boating Safety class this Wednesday. Our engine has been out of commission, so we haven't been able to leave the mooring ball yet. We've been meeting a lot of the locals and some of them have offered to go sailing with us, which means free lessons! YAY! But until the engine is working consistently, we won't be going anywhere. (It's too tricky to get in and out of the mooring without a motor, especially for two novices like ourselves!) The Beer Can Races are held every Wednesday night in San Diego Bay and one of our neighbors has invited us along with him and some friends. Hopefully, we will be able to join them next week... once we finish our boating class.
That's about all that's been going on. We're just learning all the ins and outs of boating life... and there's a LOT to learn. The life of a sailor is a slow life and luckily Ben and I blend right in. (Much different from our east-coast upbringings!) Hopefully, I'll have more to say in my next post. Until then...
