San Francisco to Santa Barbara

The Good Ship Alcatraz. The famous island has an interesting profile as we depart a fog shrouded San Franciso Bay at dawn. Ian Joseph shot this with his Nikon SLR digital .

Ian and Will at the mast as we head toward the Golden Gate on December 29th. For the next two days, we alternately sailed and motor-sailed down the central California coast in moderate seas with a following wind. Other than some 25 knot breezes off Point Sur, it was an easy, though chilly, trip. We arrived at Santa Barbara in the fog on New Year's eve. A Check Spellingnice dinner at the Enterprise Fish Company and libations back on the boat helped us bring in the new year in grand style.

Ho-Hum. Just another beautiful sunset off the Big Sur coast.... (Ian Joseph phot0)
At this point, the pelicans pretty much own this bait barge in the Santa Barbara harbor. They're a picturesque, but really smelly bunch! (Ian Joseph photo)

Fog moving in at sunset gives the harbor an interesting mood. Looks more like Halloween than New Years Day. (Ian Joseph photo)
