Nicole and Karl’s Visit to San Diego

|

Natalie and I got about a week of downtime without visitors after my parents left. Next up were Natalie’s sister, Nicole, and her husband, Karl. This time we stayed up in the V berth and let them have the captain’s cabin. We changed the sleeping arrangements because when we’ve had guests stay up in the V berth they have a habit of knocking their heads on the low doorway. We still hit our heads sometimes, but not as frequently as when Jeff or my parents did when they stayed in there. Nicole and Karl are both pretty tall, so that would have been a cruel berthing arrangement.

We took the boat out for a sail on Sunday with lots of visitors. Nicole’s friends Vanessa and Jasmine were in town for the weekend, and Ted and Pam were here for a couple days as well. We sailed up the bay and dropped anchor in the cruiser’s anchorage. It was pretty rolly, but we were able to relax and hang out, and make a delicious lunch.
