Meet Edgar. I named him. I name all the big boys – they make me think of doormen or butlers – so I give them dignified names. He’s a resident here at San Leandro Marina. It took him three days to discover that there was a person on board that will feed him every time he comes calling – more like honk-honking. He now calls several times a day. In fact, his first call is 0719 – almost on the dot, every morning. One problem. I am not “the person” who feeds him, but I am the person who hears him. “The person” is sleeping soundly and doesn’t hear Edgar. Tomorrow morning if Edgar doesn’t wake Bruce – I will. 😉
We have now been in San Francisco Bay two weeks! We watch the weather daily, hoping for decent conditions on the coast, so we can make our escape out of the bay – and with a long enough window – into Southern California. One overnight would do it. Once we get south of Point Conception we will be in So Cal and our weather planning will become less problematic. Our plan to head into Mexico will become more than a plan – it will be an action! We get tiny bits of teasing hopeful weather a week out, and within a day or so of getting our hopes up, the weather falls apart again. We keep watching and waiting and checking more items off the “Before Mexico” checklist. Our biggest remaining item – Get South of Point Conception!
Meanwhile – I’m home today, with Edgar – at San Leandro Marina!
