There were many marinas to choose from here and only a few anchoring spots that you need to register for. We decided to head to the police dock that had a perfect side tie for us since we had company coming the next morning. It is also one of the cheaper options for overnight that we could find. The dock was nice and clean and we have had very nice quiet nights here. A sea lion comes each day and sleeps on the dock but then disappears at night, we assume to hunt.
John, girlfriend Sunny and daughter Haley came for the weekend. This was our first for having three people overnight and all went well. The kids slept in our stateroom (along with us), John and Sunny in the V-berth and Haley on the salon settee. Haley is a freshman in college here in San Diego and it was great to see her. We had not seen her in a few years. We were sorry to miss John's other daughter Kaitlyn but she had plans for a Vegas weekend.
