Mission Bay

We got our first glimpse of Mexico, the Islas Coronados, as we sailed south from Dana Point today. We started out before sunrise, as days are much shorter now. We saw another pod of Risso's dolphins, with large dorsal fins like orcas.

We also had a close encounter with a Navy hovercraft, on manuevers near Camp Pendleton. Otherwise we pretty much had the ocean to ourselves.

There's only one other transient boater anchored here in Mission Bay. Tomorrow we'll head around Pt Loma into San Diego.
