August 2015 Cruise to Monterey Bay, California
« on: September 26, 2015, 02:23:15 AM »
I've just finished my cruise log for our 12-day cruise from Berkeley to Monterey Bay and back. We saw more whales than I have seen in all of my other sailing days combined. We kayaked up Elkhorn Slough and out to Point Pinos, bought fresh Ling Cod from the from a fishing boat at Moss Landing, and generally had a great time. I hope you enjoy my photos and log.

Very nice.  I hopped out to Half Moon Bay a couple of weeks ago; Santa Cruz is my next big outing, when I get the courage up!  Your cruise log is inspirational...

Thanks Alma...it was real fun for us and a good match for the 323 capabilities. The breezes were often too light but that was okay for this trip.

Selene, if you go to Santa Cruz/Monterey Bay I can certainly recommend the August time frame if you like classic cars (Monterey) or plentiful sea life. It is a fun trip and one that I hope to do again. We wanted to go to Tomales Bay this in October but will probably just drive up with the kayaks instead of sailing...maybe next year we go with the boat and spend several days.
