I heard from Steve four hours ago that they were leaving the dock, heading for home. Bringing “Pablo” to Moss Landing, near our home. I am sad not to be with them on this journey. This is Steve’s first overnight (multiple night) passage. It is now 8:30 and the sun is beginning to set. I think about how they have started rotation. I wonder if Steve is on first watch or second? Will he be up when they round Point Conception? Are they eating the brownies I made? Is the crew getting into a groove?
I know that my thoughts and heart will be with them these next couple of days. I know that people do this trip all the time. I know that the crew is very experienced, but still my mind wonders…..
This will be a long three days.
