24º 28.524' N110º 22.746' WS/V Endless SummerAfter about a 4-hour motorboat ride, we arrived at the island in calm seas and little wind. We picked a cove called Ensenada de Gallo where we dropped the hook in about 14' of crystal-clear turquoise water over white sand. The turquoise is so bright that the color reflects off the white birds (called Turns) and Pelicans. It made them look turquoise as well. We took a nice dinghy tour around the cove and outside islands then to the white sand beach. Along the way we saw our first set of Blue Footed Boobies, a very rare bird that is found in these parts. They took off before we could get the camera out, but we hope to see more soon. It is so quiet here with no roads and no airplanes, the only thing you hear is the fish jumping, birds diving and turtles coming up for air. Very relaxing!!! Except there are little tiny flies called Bobos here that like to land everywhere on you. Could do without them... We will head north to the next anchorage called Playa Cadelero. We hear its great snorkeling there. Stay tuned for more from the crew of Endless Summer soon.3 months  agoShow

24º 9.006' N110º 20.022' WS/V Endless SummerThe time has finally come to put the Infinity pool and hot tub in our rear-view mirror and depart the marina. Although way overpriced it provided a safe place to put Endless Summer while we traveled to the states for 2 months. We were going to leave the marina and head straight to Isla Espirito Santos and Isla Partida, but then we heard it was Carnival in just a few days so we went back out to the anchorage which is closer to the Malacon and all the upcoming festivities. This would allow us to dinghy into the Marina de La Paz dinghy dock to provision as well as go see all the festivities of Carnival with our friends there. On the first night of Carnival our friends led a dinghy cruise to the Malecon where the Opening Night Fireworks were being shot off. There were about 15 dinghies and a sport fisher that we all tied up too to watch. Carnival is quite the spectacle and is lots of fun but wow, is it LOUD. It is like when the fair comes to town but multiply that by 100. Dave said it is an assault on our senses. There were concerts, games, food, rides and parades over about a weeks' time. It is about 20 or so blocks along the waterfront Malecon. We walked it once in the afternoon, and no one was around. Every booth was covered up and it was a ghost town. Everything seems to start at around 5pm each night. We made it back in to walk the whole thing two times at night and were back to the boat by around 9pm and once by Midnight. But we could hear the music way out in the anchorage, did we mention it was LOUD! I think our ears are still ringing. On the last night of Carnival, which is called Fat Tuesday, we joined friends for dinner to watch the final parade. The music that night went till 3:30am. CRAZY!!! There was also a Superbowl party on Sunday that we wanted to attend at a local restaurant put on by the Club Cruceros cruising community but unfortunately the weather report was dead on calling for wind. We like to stay on the boat when the wind pipes up just in case another boat slips anchor and heads our way or if our own anchor has an issue. The forecast was for 28 knots out of the North, but we only saw 24kts which was plenty. The wind is not too bad by itself, but in the La Paz anchorage there is also tidal current. When the wind blows the opposite direction than the current the boats like to ride up on their anchor chains. This will make the boats turn sideways to the wind and current and then move forwards, backwards and sometime spin around. This is what the locals call the La Paz Waltz. We did ride up on the anchor gear but with plenty of Chain Snubber out we were able to keep the chain from rubbing on the bow of the boat and damaging the fiberglass. But wow what an exciting Superbowl!!! Sorry our 49ers did not win but that was a great game. We were able to watch it on the boat using our Starlink Satellite system and Paramount+ which worked great. On a different note, here is a fun fact: Sears stores are still alive and well in Mexico. We went to the one in La Paz and it is exactly the same as the ones we used to have back home. This one had 3 floors with the Perfume & Womens department on the first floor, Men's & Kids on the second floor and Appliances, Furniture and Tools (Craftsman) etc. on the 3rd floor. After Converting prices from Paso's to US dollars, the prices were just a little higher that in the states for things like Levi's etc. Wow we miss Sears. Stay tuned for next time with a report from the anchorages of Isla Espirito Santos and Isla Partida. Cheers, Dave and Michelle 3 months  agoShow

24º 9.612' N110º 20.226' WS/V Endless SummerEndless Summer has moved out of Marina Costa Baja where she got a good scrubbing the day before. Well, you know what happens after you wash a car, the same thing happens when you wash a boat too - It RAINS! Not much but just enough to make things a mess even though it was clean there is dust and dirt in the rigging overhead that drips down. After a quick rinse and drying the windows, she looked great again. Off we went to the fuel dock where we returned the gate keys to the office. From there we went out into La Paz Bay so we could make about 30 gallons of water to top off our tank. As the water at the dock was not potable/drinkable. Now we have 100 gallons of potable water and 25 gallons of dock water that we use for showers and washing dishes etc. Now we have the anchor down in about 15' of water over a sandy bottom, exactly where we were 2 months ago. We will do some laundry, provision and get some more gasoline for the outboard and generator before we leave. It is also Carnival here in La Paz so we will have to check that out. It starts today with a firework show tonight that we will join a dinghy raft out to meet other cruisers, weather permitting because its overcast and cool today. Good day to stay in and take a nap :). It looks like the wind will be up on Superbowl Sunday so we may need to watch the game on board, we will see. Cheers for now, Dave and Michelle3 months  agoShow

24º 13.044' N110º 18.036' WS/V Endless SummerHola Amigo's, We are back on Endless Summer after a full 11 hours of travel from our lot in the Arizona Desert. Because there is no shuttle service or car rental companies with a reasonable distance, we thought out of the box and took a U-Haul truck from our little town of Quartzsite. The 10' box truck worked out great as we picked it up the day before so we could hit the road right at 6am. After making sure everything was shut down at the RV, we hit the road right on time. It was supposed to be a 2-hour trip but with 2 accidents and early morning commute traffic in Phoenix it was more like 2 hours 45 mins. It's funny that the truck did not have cruise control, but it did have a governor that keeps the speed at 75 mph. Since the speed limit on Hwy 10 is 75 mph I just floored it and it was just like cruise control. Wha-La... Bosun the cat was very vocal on this portion of the trip, we guess he was letting us know it was way too early in the morning to be up say nothing about being in a noisy and stiff riding truck before sun up. We dropped off the truck to a U-Haul location that was only a few miles from the airport, then used Uber for a quick run to the airport. We checked in with American Airlines which was really quick and then a pretty quick and easy pass-through of security. Just like on the way to the states, Dave had to take Bosun out of his carrier and hold him while passing through the X-Ray scanner. We had to stand there and wait for the officer to wave us through but of course there was a family with 5 rowdy little kids behind us. Poor cat did really well, and Dave did not get bloody from this event, only 2 small holes in his shirt from those sharp knives. It was a good flight that was right on time although a little bumpy coming down into Cabo over the high mountains. Bosun was in his carrier at our feet and did pretty well through most of it. He was moving a round at one point, maybe just trying to get comfortable. Once on the ground we needed to stop and give Bosuns paperwork to the agriculture folks that showed all his shots and exams were in order. They didn't even look at him, just asked us his age and color. Then it was off to the taxi area where they all wanted about $240 US dollars to take us from the airport to La Paz which is almost a 3-hour drive (Such a bummer there are no US flights out of La Paz anymore). But we kept saying "No, to Expensive" and eventually one of them said there was a gentleman that was also looking to go to La Paz, and we could share a van/ shuttle for $80 each. That was acceptable so off to the boat we went. And of all the places in La Paz he was heading to our same Marina, Weird... It was definitely another 'Planes, Trains and Automobiles' kind of trip but it really went pretty well, although that shuttle van was a bumpy ride too. Now we are back on Endless Summer which was ABSOLUTLY FILTHY with dirt and grime which needed to be rinsed off right away so we could open all the hatches. We learned that right over the hill in front of us is a power generation smokestack that drops black soot when the wind is just right. Yuck. Other than that, all systems are working properly just like we left her. Ok, We last told you we are working on an app that will signal you when a new blog post comes in. It's called Farkwar.com.

33º 40.32' N114º 13.662' WS/V Endless SummerHowdy Y'all! Well, God Willin and the Crick Don't Rise, we will get out of the Desert one of these days, tell you what!!! All kidding aside, after having a GREAT time here at our RV lot in Arizona, we will be heading back to the boat the first of February. It has been a long time away from Endless Summer. We have never left her this long before, but we did get some pictures from a friend that was walking the dock about 3 weeks ago and she looked the same as we left her back on the 5th of December. Upon arrival in the bay area on the 5th of December, we went and surprised Michelle's folks by walking into their house and saying: "Are we late for cocktails?" That started the 'Water-Works' as Michelle's Mom was without words. We stayed a few days with them before heading for a nice visit with Dave's Mom for a few days. Then it was off to the RV at our lot in foothills below Yosemite. It was a good thing we did because we needed to replace all the batteries in the RV, OUCH! They didn't handle the winter cold or the summer hot temps since we were there last. Way too long. Then it was back to the bay area for Christmas where was saw all the rest of the families and friends. A great time was had, we miss you all very much. After Christmas we headed back to the RV where we met up with friends and attended a great New Years Eve party where we danced the night away. On New Years Day we headed out in the RV with the Honda CR'v in tow to Arizona to get out of the cold and rain that clobbered California and the rest of the country. We didn't get much rain, but it was cold as far as Az weather is concerned (in the 50s-60s). We caught up with friends there and went out in the Side-by-Sides on some great desert 4x4 trips. So beautiful looking out over the valleys from high upon the mountain tops. Reminds us of the old Road-Runner cartoons. Oh, yes there are real Road Runners here too. After extending our time here for another week it's with mixed emotions that it's now time to put it all away and get back to the boat for some warmer weather and to continue the adventure. Of which we have no idea if we will head north, deeper into the Sea of Cortez, or south to Puerto Vallarta via Mazatlan. We just need to be out of the area before June. As we are out in the middle of nowhere, the trip back to the boat is like 'Planes, Trains and Automobiles' in that the Phoenix airport is 2.5-hours away with no shuttles or taxis or rental cars to get there from here. We do have a U-Haul in town that we can get a one-way rate to Phoenix and drop it off right next to the airport. Problem solved. At least there is a Non-Stop flight to Cabo but then we need to take a 2.5-hour Taxi or Uber ride up to La Paz. All with the Cat Bosun in his carrier. Oh well, all part of the adventure. Thats all for this one, we promise to get back to the blog posts more consistently once back in the groove. Please feel free to send us a quick hello so we know you are still out there. We do love to see them, even if they don't get posted to the blog. Cheers from the Arizona desert, Dave and Michelle4 months  agoShow

37º 47.022' N122º 15.768' WS/V Endless SummerWell, we decided to head into the bay and drop the hook for a few days then head down the coast on Wednesday to HMB, weather permitting, to enjoy the Labor Day festivities with OYC and other clubs that head down there for the long weekend. Always a good time. We will head down the coast from there. I am still testing Farkwar because I am not able to send this post from the SSB, only from the website itself which needs to be remedied.

38º 13.056' N121º 31.062' WS/V Endless SummerIt was decided it was too nice here and that we will stay another week and work from here. Why rush back to the Bay and the cold foggy days if we don't have too. We are really glad the Dry Lightning that came through with hundreds of lightning strikes did not start any major fires. One started but was put out right away. On a sad note, that same day our favorite Delta restaurant was burned to the ground due to a gas water heater malfunction. Hope they can rebuild, been there and family owned since around 1903.
Take care,
Dave and Michelle.

38º 36.246' N121º 31.548' WS/V Endless SummerBeen a long time since sending out something on Farqwar, All is well here on Endless Summer. Hoping the Delta Variant goes away soon, so we decided to head up the Sacramento Delta!

Sept. 1st, 2021 finds us anchored in the Sacramento River across from the Virgin Sturgeon restaurant where we will go for Brunch.
it was a motorboat ride all the way from Alameda, stopping at Decker island for 1 night. Then up the Steamboat slough where we anchored up by the bascule bridge at the Sacramento river for 2 nights. We put out a bow and stern anchor out towards the middle, then a bow and stern line to the trees to pull us over to the edge. Unfortunately it must have been harvest season (Apples?)and the trucks on that levee road were noisy all night long. So up anchors and a call to the Steamboat Slough bridge and we were on our way up river against about a 1kt current.

When we left Alameda we had 3/4 tank of fuel, now we had less than a quarter so we stopped at Sherwood resort for Diesel. The price was not as bad as it could have been these days at 4.75/gal. Seen that on land lately. We calculate we used about 28 gallons and went about 110 miles or so.

So far, we opened the Rio Vista bridge, Steamboat Slough bridge, Paintersville bridge, Freeport bridge, Tower Bridge and the "I"Street bridge and will now head back down till we get to Walnut Grove bridge and the Georgiana bridge on our way to our next anchorage. Probably leave tomorrow of Friday.

Cheers,

37º 51.03' N122º 25.014' WS/V Endless SummerWell it was not a bad night here at the East Garrison at Angel Island. The fog rolled in and the Horn started blowing every 10 seconds at around midnight. But its tone allowed some sleep to happen anyway. On the good side there is a lot of seals that call this spot home and they are very curious as to who is here to visit. One of them is a dark Red color that we have never seen before. This anchorage is also not very rolly compared to other anchorages around the bay even though large ships do pass day and night. A large car carrier went by in the rain at 22:00. We felt it but didn't roll us much. This morning is socked in with fog so may be Radar practice day. I wanted to send another note via Farkwar because I am not sure why last evenings position plot is showing us out in the SF Bay to the south of our actual location, so here it goes.

37º 51.03' N122º 25.014' WS/V Endless SummerWell, 2020 is finally behind us as this is January 1st 2021, YAY. So the Endless Summer crew pulled the anchor up from our happy spot at Treasure island and went for a first of the year sail. It was light but we had a great day if not a bit cold. We sailed up the city front, passing aquatic park. We said, well we can anchor there for the night but we went across the bay to Sausalito. The Yacht club there has a bunch of mooring balls in front so we couldn't drop there. And the middle of Richardson bay is full of full timers and we've heard there was lots of wrecks that can snag your anchor so we pressed on to Racoon Straights and the north side of Angel island there is a little beach but it had some current and wind that didn't look inviting. We went around to the East side of Angel island where there is 3 or four nice little anchorages. We passed a few and ended at the last one called the East Garrison which looked the best. As of 21:30 when the tide changed all is good but still cold at 56F. We are anchored in 18' of water in sand. We will see what it looks like when we wake up. Happy New Years to all!

37º 53.73' N122º 27.444' WS/V Endless SummerWe made it back from the Delta yesterday, pulled the anchors at 9am and dropped it again at 5pm at McNears Beach in San Rafael. Not bad for beating against the current. The smoke of the California fires was hazy in the morning but we could not smell it. Then once in Benicia it was so bad we had to put on our masks, fire up the radar and even ran the new loud hailer fog horn. We left McNears this morning and pulled into Loch Lomond to pump out quick before heading to Paradise Park for the night. It was calm and quiet at 2pm but at 3:30 the wind came up to 20kts and its still honking now at 7:30. It would not be so bad but its gusty, the wind dies to nothing and the chain pulls the boat forward. Then the gust hits and swings the bow around till the cantenary of the chain is gone and the rest of the momentum is stoped by the snubber lines. Then it starts all over again. Oh well, it should stop by 10:00 or so. We figured we would go hit a few other stops before heading into the slip since we have plenty food and water to stay out the rest of the week.

38º 5.004' N121º 32.046' WS/V Endless Summer105 today in Bedroom 2 on the Sacramento Delta today, good thing we like the heat. Just wish the smoke would go away. Yuck. Its not too bad but hazy and makes it so the Solar panels can't keep up. We do have to keep the beers cold and the ice cream frozen. That Engel freezer is a miser but the Cold Machine is running a lot. 300 more watts are on the list.
Tomorrow is calling for some wind gusting 32 out of the north so that should be fun. we have a bow and stern anchor out now but we may move the stern to the bow also to keep the bow into the wind. Will see how it goes.
More next time.

38º 5.046' N121º 32.454' WS/V Endless SummerEven though the fires of California were keeping the sky's smoky and soot falling, we made it to the Delta finally! Friday, August 25th we woke up and smelled the smoke but decided to leave anyway with KN95 masks on which made it tolerable. We can brave the smoke either in Alameda or in the warm Delta so what the heck. 10 hours and 65 miles later, we averaged 6.4 knots with a max of 8.8 we dropped the hook off Mandeville tip. Smoke here has been minimal with haze but tolerable with temps in the upper 80's in the day with 60's at night. Wind in the evenings we see upper teens. We moved today to Bedroom 2 on Potato slough and it is quiet. We are the only boat. Perfect!

37º 48.084' N122º 22.014' WS/V Endless SummerSo the world is pretty much shut down. California has been told to stay HOME with the threat of a misdemeanor, so here we are at HOME on the boat. Last week we stayed on the dock but on Saturday we said we will still be at home and away from people if we were on the hook in the Treasure Island anchorage, just as well if not better than being on the dock. And I'd bet we are more secluded than anyone in a house.
Michelle went out and provisioned the boat as if we were going on an off shore cruise to Hawaii with about 15+ dinner meals aboard. She filled all 4 water tanks and we also pumped out the holding tanks and took on diesel. The only thing that's missing is the 400 Watts of solar panels that are in storage for the winter. It would be nice to have a few more gallons of gas for the Honda generator too once we run out we will just use the main engine to heat water and charge batteries. Really wish we had our solar panels, they work that good.
So here we sit, I can work from HOME here as we have our Verizon Hot Spot that works great. We have no TV reception here but can see what we need on line (Some reports with a grain of salt of coarse).
We will stay put until one of 3 things happens: I get called into work, we run out of water or we run out of Toilet Paper. We have 5 rolls so that should not be first. We are still on the first tank of water which is only 23 gallons so we have been doing really well there too. I am hoping I don't get called in, No one is working so nothing should break. Hmm, Maybe if we run out of Booze? Yikes, I'd hate to imagine that. To that end though, this is really good practice for cruising full time although we are used to hanging out in the Delta for a couple weeks every season.
Anyway, all is good here and we hope anyone reading this is doing so as well.
Stay Safe, Stay Home.

37º 58.14' N122º 31.092' WS/V Endless SummerWe made it back to Treasure Island anchorage after not being out on the hook since last October. Just been doing too many other things.
The anchor Windlass worked as normal although it looks like the anchor to chain shackle has a bit more rust on it than I'd like. Will take a closer look to make sure its not just surface rust, it was a high quality shackle and hope its not shot after 4 or 5 years. I forget what brand but it did have a red pin.
anyway. Go niners. Super bowl tomorrow against the KC Chiefs. I'm racing first with some friends. Wind will be up in the high 20's gusting 30's so it will be exciting.. till next time.

Another great performance by all the air teams involved with the show. This was the second year we instigated bringing the cruisers from OYC but most of them left on Saturday after the show. We will stay till tomorrow. Using both of our Flop-Stoppers really helps with the wakes from all the big boat traffic outside the break wall. We just set them off the midship cleats on each side.

37º 48.81' N122º 22.056' WS/V Endless SummerWe are back in SF Bay after a 9 hour motor all the back from the Bedrooms in Potato Slough. No wind and what there was of it was on the nose until "the Slot" which is notorious for afternoon winds. Its also known as Hurricane Alley. Well the boat got all full of salt spray after being so clean all week in the fresh water of the Delta. Anyway, We couldn't bring ourselves to go straight into the marina today so we pulled into the Treasure Island anchorage for the night where a bunch of boats already are. The Washed Up Yacht Club is here with about 20+ boats rafted up. We found our spot out of the wind so we are happy. Its still 81 degrees out here at 18:30 and anchored in 8' of water. May drag the keel a bit at midnight at low tide. Till next time.

Tied to a tree with a stern anchor out. The wind was up around 15kts. About 1/2 hour later the rest of the OYC cruisers arrived, dropping anchor behind us. We all met at a dinghy raft up in the anchorage sharing horsderves and stories in the evening.. Bosun the Cat is having a ball catching and eating bugs. We plan to be here a couple of days.

38º 12.39' N121º 32.478' WS/V Endless SummerWe are anchor down in 25' of 68 degree fresh water, tied to a couple trees to keep us out of the middle of the slough. We are a couple miles further down river because our usual spot is no longer good. There is a 50+ foot sunken houseboat on what used to be the beach and an anchor out in a crappy house boat still there from last year and we just didn't want to look at all that crap let alone what crap he puts in the water, YUCK!!! So down river we went. Found a nice little spot and watched a great full moon in silence for some "US TIME" for a change. The ships cat Bosun was out in the cockpit and up on deck in the beginning of the trip and then slept the rest of the way, missing the opening of 3 bridges. We quickly stopped for fuel at Rio Vista Marina and got back on our way. As we approached the Rio Vista bridge, the tender said because of painting work the bridge was only opening with 4 hours advanced notice through January 1st!!! UHHHHHHH WHHHHAAATTTTT Dave said!!!!! Notification was in the notice to mariners. Oops, didn't read that today... Then one of the Brusco tugs came on VHF 09 and said the 3 mile slough bridge was also out of service and that we would need to go all the way back to Pittsburgh which would be more than a 4 hour setback. WOW!!! The bridge tender said to call him on the land line where he then let us know he could open in 15 mins if we waited, he said he understood we came a distance and didn't want to ruin our day. Wow, THATS GREAT!!! Not much of that helpful attitude around these days. He wouldn't even take the $20 we offered him for his kindness. Told him if he see us out and about to come by for a beer!!! Thank your bridge tender! Anyway, we are here in beautiful 85 degree weather, Michelle is outside using the bucket to rinse down the deck. We've already been in the water to cool off. Dinghy is down, and ready to roll for Guisti's dinner tonight. More tomorrow when we depart this spot and head down to the Bedrooms in Potato slough to meet the rest of the OYC cruise out attendees...

38º 1.098' N122º 24.372' WS/V Endless SummerIts Friday, September 13th 2019 and being such a superstitious day we can say we left yesterday evening after work. We are not superstitious though and we just left after work to get farther along. Anyway we spent the night at McNears Beach along with 9 other anchor-outs, not one with an anchor light on. anyway, there was no wind all night and there was a beautiful sunset. we rocked very little, until we didn't! We suspect a ship went by but WOW, we rocked what felt like gunnel to gunnel for about 20 minutes. This was around midnight. Yuck. Other ships went by but nothing rocked us like this one.
Anyway, we pulled anchor at 9am and are headed east in 70 degree air, a light breeze out of the north so we put up both sails and are motor sailing at 6 kts. Will updated again at our anticipated destination of Georgiana Slough tonight.

37º 29.922' N122º 29.37' WS/V Endless SummerWe made it to HMB for another Labor Day cruise out with OYC to the Half Moon Bay Yacht Club. Light wind out of the WNW around 10 or less had us motor sailing once we droped down to 2kts over ground. The only wild life we saw was 1 baby Sun fish. We also had our Chart Plotter die 1/4 mile from the GGB, Nice timing. Used the Garmin hand held but didn't really need it as the fog layer was high. We are hanging on our anchor in 15' of water. Temps will be in the 70's today.

Then wing/wing through the bridge before a couple Jibes into the channel at 8kts again. Nice trip, Hot weekend. Dinghy trip around Bair Island was fun with the club, had 6 boats, the Torqedo's died or broke down. :-)~ almost 5 years  agoShow
