We left Ventura around 1030 hours Thursday Oct. 15 heading for Santa Cruz Island.  We hosted a herd of dolphins on the way over.  Muggs took a lot of pictures, but only this one even starts to show the magnificence of what we saw – a couple dozen animals at least, playing and leaping:


About half way over the wind and swell started kicking up and we decided to change our destination to Cat Harbor.  We reached Cat Harbor around midnight.  There was no room at the anchorage, no moon, and too many mooring balls so we headed out to Long Beach Harbor.

After a long night in the Catalina channel (waiting for time to go by—we didn’t want to enter in the dark) we entered Long Beach Harbor about 0700 hours.  There was no room at the inn so we anchored in a very nice anchorage.  Each boat in the anchorage has to register with the Harbor Police, no fee.

After sleeping almost all day and all night, I woke up to a gorgeous sunrise followed by thick fog an hour later.


We will stay here two more days, and then we will go to Oceanside on Monday.
