Today went pretty much as expected…. It was our first day out from L.A. and was pretty chilly. I spent the day trying to learn about my new camera and visiting with friends. There may have been a nap somewhere during the afternoon as well. So it was a pretty relaxed day. This evening we celebrated Christmas with a lovely meal. For me personally, Christmas has never been the same after my parents passed away. I always spent Christmas with then so it has taken a bit away from the holidays. I also miss my family & friends back home. It was a very nice evening nonetheless. It is so nice to be sailing with Sandy & Grace again. Tomorrow, hopefully, we will have some nicer weather. I understand we will be taking a little detour tomorrow for a medical evacuation of a crew member at Cabo San Lucas…. Too bad we aren’t stopping. Merry Christmas to all….
