We spent the day on shore yesterday. Here's @zeratskymj looking very summery on our friends' patio in Silver Lake.

I serviced our diesel's cooling system in preparation for this week's upwind journey. Now rinsing and drying the tools before stowing. (That skinny pipe brush is my newest tool. Perfect size for cleaning the tubes in our Westerbeke heat exchanger.)

Another gratuitous dolphin video — this one outside of Marina del Rey near Los Angeles. There were too many dolphins to count, but we did our best to capture them on video. @zeratskymj

We flew the Packers flag all day in Isthmus Cove. Now we're watching the game at the Harbor Reef Saloon.

The morning after our arrival at Catalina, we made a big brunch of BLTs with egg.

While we were eating, a little girl paddled by with her dad. He said, “look at those people, don’t they look like they’re having fun?”

She responded immediately: “NO!”

Brunch was delicious all the same.

Siblings came up from LA and posed for a photo with Aegea.

Provisioning at the Santa Barbara Farmers Market. See @zeratskymj for photo of one of the stands.

I was surprised to see this guy anchored outside the Santa Barbara breakwater when I woke up.

At lunch, a pair of lady tourists approached a local couple to ask directions. The locals asked: “Any chance you’re from that cruise ship?”

The tourist responded: “Absolutely no chance!”

She had an English accent. “Well, I’m sorry, but it’s kind of a personal question!!”
