Here is where I slip in Marina Del Rey, Ca. It is the West Los Angeles equivalent of Newport, sort of. MDR was converted from a muddy river inlet to an enormous small craft harbor by Howard Hughes in the early 1960's.Marina_del_Rey_panorama1.jpg
The red circle marks where my slip is. That is not my boat. Plenty of nearby parking and amenities.
Here we are approaching my slip. If you look just to the right of my mast, you'll see the SCCYC building, which is a three minute walk from my slip.
