After buddy boating from Monterey with Demelza, we arrived in Morro Bay on Wednesday. We has planned to anchor in San Simeon, but southerly winds were predicted, and none of us wanted to end up in a bad anchorage so we pushed on.
We after crossing the bar in small seas but strong current, we anchored in the small free area while Demelza tied up to the yacht club’s dock. We had a lovely, flat night.
The next morning, the winds picked up as the storm got going and we found ourselves closer than we wanted to be to the nearest boat on a mooring. So, we decided to move over to the yacht club. When we arrived, all that was available was a mooring, so we took it. We’ve been there since, and the strong currents keep the ball off our hull, so we’re happy there.
We were invited to the yacht club’s happy hour, which we spent with Dave from Demelza as well as our new friends Dean and Gary from Unda. It was an odd way to spend Halloween, but very enjoyable.
The weather is predicted to get better early next week, when we’ll move on to the Channel Islands.
