Hello from San Diego

Hello, I posted in the Meet and Greet section, but then saw this one, so thought I would double post. I'm still having trouble believing that I'm actually considered a live-aboard now. This is all very new to me.

My boyfriend and I moved aboard our 36' Han Christian two weeks ago. It's been a little rough adjusting (for me anyway but we're getting used to it pretty quickly.) We're docked in San Diego.

Just wanted to introduce myself.

Best,
Charlotte

G'day Charlotte,

I must say,I did look at your clothes.I think you did very well for a female on the amount you stowed aboard.When I noticed where the holding tank was,I realised the enormity of the situation Phew...

Hope you are getting more used to living-a-board,I too am working towards the same,though,not circumnavigating the globe.The shrooms will look after that part of the trip for me.I love ya boat and only wish there were more HC's in my price range here in OZ.Hope ya fill up ya blog with more stuff in the future.And welcome aboard.Mudnut.

Welcome, Charlotte and Eric! What a beautiful spot to live aboard, San Diego Harbor. We had a power boat when we lived in North San Diego County and Catalina is still on our favorites list. I still feel like I'm "home" when I land at the San Diego airport. Now we live in NC and have a sailing catamaran. That's wonderful too. Guess you can't be everywhere at once, but a boat gives you terrific options. You will love this forum - lots of friendly and helpful folks here.

Hello everyone!

Mudnut, your post made me laugh, I guess we really are getting people to read our blog And what a great moniker!

Hello Entlie, I know exactly that feeling of coming 'home' when you get to San Diego. I've lived her for 11 years and still feel it every time I arrive at Lindbergh Field. Catalina is one of our favorite spots too. Our first sail together was too Catalina and we're considering getting married out there next year.

Lancerbye, an early welcome back to the west coast. Nice to meet you all.

"What a great moniker"

Charlotte If ya refering to Mudnut,I envisioned buying a boat with twin keels so I could just park up for the night on a beach if I became tired or lazy.Alot of places in north Queensland are basicly MUD,when the tide goes out.

As you are new to living aboard I will follow your blog as people who have lived aboard for years make it sound so easy.Never had doing it myself,I find what people that are doing it for the first time experience is more or less what interests me.When ya over the hectic time ya having,post some of it on ya blog.Thanks.Mudnut.
