Prisoner's Harbor

We're sitting at anchor in Prisoner's Harbor on Santa Cruz island after a nice day sail from Santa Barbara.

The plan was to check out Pelican Bay but there were too many boats and the wind was really blowing when we came in. So we made the short sail around the point to Prisoner's. The wind just dropped off and we have the place all to ourselves. This will be my third night on this island and this is the only anchorage I've been to. We plan to find another spot to drop the hook tomorrow.

We had a relaxing 4 days in SB, which provided a well-needed opportunity to wind down after our first week of sailing. Thanks to my very good friend, Monica, for playing taxi and hosting a fantastic dinner on Friday night where April and Madison joined us. And thanks also for the wonderful send-off. We had our own little cheering party on the dock. It made it a little hard to leave.

The plan is to hang out here on Santa Cruz Island for a few days and then sail for Catalina Island. Rick and Maria are going to try and meet us there next weekend. I really hope they make it. It should be fun.
