Monterey to Morro Bay

We had about a 24 hour passage from Monterey to Morro Bay. We kind of slowed down to arrive after sunrise to enter the harbor. Motored other than a short 2 to 3 hours of sailing. It was nasty drizzly with a headwind most of the night. Looking at the weather and our next passage to Santa Barbara we have decided to rest 5 of 6 hours and leave this evening at 6 pm. This will put us going around the big corner of Point Arguello and Point Conception after sunrise. It also beats out some stronger winds and much bigger swells that are predicted were we to leave after a full nights sleep. We co hold end up not wanting to leave for 5 days if we wait. The total to Santa Barbara is 116 NM. Leaving to get past Point Conception in daylight puts us having a hard time reaching Santa Barbara by dark but if we leave and catch Point Arguello at dawn we can make it.

Big swell as we passed Big Sir

Further down the coast past Point Sir

I've seen about 15 Sea Otters between Monterey and here at Morro Bay

This rock is at the entrance to the harbor

The only transient docking as at this Morro Bay Yacht Club dock. It's $25 a night. Time to sleep now.....zzzzzz
