Last year, we were fortunate enough to have some extra vacation
time that needed to get used up, and got to take a couple of sail charters in San Juans and out to Catalina
, and also spent a week at a beach house in Newport Beach
which the kids
really loved. This year, things are a little tighter, and we probably need to squeeze the summer vacation
down to just one week.
So, I was wondering if it might be possible to combine our 2 passions of sailing and beaching somewhere in southern California
? Possibly rent a boat from San Diego
or LA area, then cruise
to a few beach locations up or down the coast.
Seems like to do this, we'd need marinas
with overnight slips or good anchorages
that are within walking (or maybe cabbing) distance of some nice swimming beaches. We'd plan to sleep on the boat each night.
Possible, or just a pipe dream? Would San Diego
or LA be a better area to try this? Any specific suggestions for beaches to go to?
