After our return from Germany, it was time to get back on the Sailboat. We wanted to explore southern California and slowly move the boat back to the San Francisco Bay.
But first, we had to pick up our dog Noah, who had stayed with friends and was very well taken care off. After we checked upon a few things back home, we made our way to Wilmington, Los Angeles. The Sailboat had to be cleaned up and provisioned. But we were soon ready to head towards our first stop – Catalina Island, one of the Channel Islands. We were excited to see them.
Wilmington is very industrial and motoring out, we passed endless numbers of cranes and container ships. It was super interesting to see how the Containers were being loaded. We were hoping to not get in the way of a Container ship entering or leaving the channel and we got lucky.
After a little bit of motoring we were able to sail straight into Emerald Bay, which was highly recommended to what we were looking for. We were assigned a mooring close to the beach and had a nice first sunset. The adventure continued!
