Kenutu did a little harbor exploration in anticipation of her upcoming move. We'll be leaving Holiday Harbor and relocating to Long Beach's Shoreline Marina. Finally, our home and our boat will be in the same city!
We wanted to make sure we knew how to get her to her new slip since the Port of Los Angeles is like a tangled water maze with bridges to consider. The days are sooooo short right now, but we took advantage of the afternoon off and sailed to our new neck of the woods at 2 knots.
The sun kept the November afternoon nice and toasty, which was good since Capt. Mack was dressed like it was July. The water was calm and glassy. The autopilot freed us up to walk around and allowed me to scrape some old caulk out of the toe rail (that saga is coming later). After about an hour of creeping along we spotted the new whale mural that let us know we were in the right area.
It was about 4:30 by the time we got eyes on Long Beach, so we turned Kenutu around and headed home. Which was pointed directly at the sunset. Which started out as beautiful and only became more mind bogglingly stunning as it went on.
I laid on the upside down dinghy on the deck and did my best to soak up all the pretty that was happening. But then, as the sun went down, the wind whipped up and the cold rolled in. Mack fired up the motor to save us from hypothermia. Kenutu just keeps on giving the most amazing gifts.
Two people dumb enough to think anything is possible and smart enough to bumble their way into discoveries.
