10 am update: A cushy ride so far much like an Inside Passage run.
|Reading Rock Light 5 miles off Gold Bluffs, California|
|Trinidad Head which marks a pretty goof west coast anchorage.|
3 pm: Arrived in Humboldt Bay and Eureka. The sun came out for the last few hours reminding us that we'ree really back in Kalifornia. The Wild Blue is moored just behind Excalibur, another NOAA research vessel which may be showing on AIS. The Wild Blue AIS signal, a Class B transponder, is not showing on MarineTraffic.com at this location.

Tomorrow is our last long motor day. Just 12 hours around famous Cape Mendocino to the Little River anchorage. Cape Mendo, as the locals call it, is considered by some mariners to be the Cape Horn of the Pacific Coast. We hope it's just another boring Cape for us, and if the weather holds for just a few mores days, we'll make San Francisco by Wednesday.
