San Francisco, more accurately Sausalito was our refuge for a few days waiting for the next weather window north, another small low would soon arrive north of Cape Mendocino. We were also looking forward to meeting up with Paul Guenette who was to meet us in San Francisco last fall for Thanksgiving. As it turned out his project list was too long, although he made it to San Francisco early November we had headed south to Mexico.
Aside from sharing beers and stories he was in possession of our Blue Water Cruising Association’s leavers package. Paul was and active volunteer in Vancouver and would see Jennifer Handley, our Commodore before we would have to time to meet so he was handed the job of presenting it to us. We missed Paul in the fall but now on our way back to Canada we meet for a very late Thanksgiving and officially receive our leavers package! Here we are almost home and celebrate leaving !!!
Paul also had his vehicle in San Francisco which was very helpful getting our shopping list done in short order. Laundry done, Adesso fuelled and the food supplies topped up we passed under the San Francisco bridge, leaving, not knowing if we would ever pass this way again.
