Around Catalina - North End and Cat Harbor
On Monday we had another wonderful sail as we left out of Isthmus Harbor at about 9:00 am,
and made our way around the north tip of the island. The geology was absolutely stunning,
with layered granite and sandstone cliffs rising out of the water.
It was an easy six hour sail to the other side of the island where we
pulled into Cat Harbor and dropped anchor.
We spent Monday night in Cat Harbor under anchor. I was nervous about
the swinging room (I'm a newbie!), but everything was cool we
swang around in a complete circle above our 120' of chain and
anchor in 35' or so of water.
I tried a little fishing with no luck :-) and we took the
dinghy into shore and walked the 1/2 mile across back to
Isthmus Harbor where we had a few drinks at the same (only)
restauarant we had dinner the night before.
On the return trip to Mandala, we motored the dinghy
around her and took a bunch of pictures of her at
