Needless to say (and as you can probably gather from the foregoing) we got bashed about a bit again on that leg. Cooking became a major challenge under those conditions (imagine trying to cook with your kitchen installed on a Tilt-a-Whirl), and Marilyn got a hero's badge (her second this trip) for her efforts in that regard.
Anyway, we made it and we're feeling quite proud of ourselves (although we kept reminding ourselves that pride cometh before the fall!) We moored at Ventura West Marina which was absolutely amazing! Individual slips, fully secured, huge shower and laundry facilities (with FREE showers - these things become important when you are cruising), a lounge and
small exercise room, and even a "guest" apartment that residents can rent if
they have guests who can't be accommodated on their boat!
Here we left the boat for 2 months, returning to Vancouver to work, while waiting out the Hurricane season before continuing our journey.
