Photos: Neah Bay WA to San Francisco CA

My first catch - an Albacore Tuna!

Shortly after I cut him open I realized letting him bleed all over the cockpit was not the best idea.

Sunrise on my first 4am watch.

Drew on watch reading "The Sea Captain's Wife". An amazing book, but a little disturbing to read while at sea.

Our mainsail tore somewhere between Neah Bay and Coos Bay.

A good omen as we leave Coos Bay for San Francisco

The waves crashing fiercely at Coos Bay. The day we left the coast guard closed the bar to vessels under 36ft. We are 37.

Its good to be back out on the ocean after a week waiting out the weather.

Our first whale sighting!

and dolphins too!

It was hard to get a good picture of them leaping around the bows, but the water was so clear we could easily photograph them gliding alongside.x

Our little bird that stayed on board for the whole afternoon.

Finally arriving in San Francisco under the Golden Gate Bridge
