We are coming to the end of our time here in San Diego. Boat projects and repairs are about wound up. Our target departure date in the middle of next week, depending of course on the details of the weather.
Speaking of weather, the central Pacific coast of Mexico is in line to get hammered really hard by a hurricane that grew up in a hurry, much bigger and more dangerous than the forecasts of just a few days ago expected. The central pressure of the storm was reported this morning to be as low as 880 mb. My barometer onboard only goes down to 940. I am very glad I am nowhere near that thing!
The Easter Pacific Hurricane Season is ending, but it sure is going out with a bang! This is the reason so many boats hang out in various places along the Southern California coast in the fall waiting for the tropical storm season to wind down before heading south.
