Settling in

As you may have noticed, we have not moved since landing in Half Moon Bay.  We have decided to spend some time here.  This is phase II of our plan.  The fact of the matter is, we need money.  Outfitting a boat is quite expensive...  So, Jake is looking for a job in the area so that we can stock the cruising kitty before moving on.  We want to make sure we are financially comfortable to be able to cruise for about 2 years before finding work again.

We have chosen Half Moon Bay as our temporary home base for many reasons;
  • We can anchor for free
  • There are beautiful beaches within walking distance
  • We are only 30 minutes from the big city of San Francisco, but in a nice small community
  • Free showers at the marina
  • This area is a perfect surfing training ground
  • There is a nearby Taco Bell right on the beach
  • Did I mention beaches, beaches, everywhere?
Our new backyard.  SV Ohana is anchored in the distance.
