After leaving SF 2 days ago, we continued our search for breeze, to no real avail. We motored for around 28 hours south, only seeing around 5 or 6 knots max. It was only as we headed into the anchorage at Port San Luis that it piped up, w/ gusts over 30 kn!! Made for an interesting approach to drop our anchor, whereupon the wind dropped completely, and we were left with a gorgeous evening, including a gourmet feast of barbque albacore fillets, cut from the "catch of the day". Tasty business!

Also sharing the anchorage were a pair of humpback whales, who came in for a visit in the evening, as well as seals, sea lions, dolphins, pelicans, storm petrels, and more. Amazing animal life in one small bay.

|Hey, I thought southern California is supposed to be warm...|
