Mexico to Seattle - Day Twenty-seven

Last I wrote, we were bashing into it at about 2.5 knots.  That continued through the night until say 0600 on Saturday.  From then on we had a near perfect day - 5.0 plus knots.  Fuel was an issue and we had planned on stopping at Monterey Bay, but did not expect to arrive as early as 2130 on Saturday.  After taking a slip, changing the oil and taking showers, we had a cold brew before getting a good nights rest.  The highlights of the day were the beautiful scenery of Big Sur and a pod of whales that were taking the same course as we but 300 yards to our east.  We expect to comfortably make our scheduled rendezvous in San Francisco Monday morning.  All for now.
