Early in 1999, Greg Barker sent out e-mail asking Lew Hodgett, Geoff Kuenning, and David Owen to join him on a March sailing trip out of Santa Barbara, California, going to Santa Cruz Island for a three-day weekend. Lew wasn't able to go, but Geoff and David managed to arrange their schedules so that they could participate in what turned out to be a very fun trip.
Here are a few photos taken when we landed on the island.
|David was a very unlucky fellow during our trip. It seemed that every time he turned around, he got hit by another wave. This was one of the rare times when he got a chance to wring out his clothes. (If you look closely, you can see water dripping from his sock.)|
|You can't land on Santa Cruz without a permit. But the "No Trespassing" sign didn't seem to care when Greg waved the paperwork in its face.|
|Santa Cruz Island is a beautiful spot. This lovely panorama is marred only by one ugly foreground obstruction.|
|While exploring, we found a cave that had been eroded by a stream. Greg is checking out the precariously balanced rocks directly over his head.|
|When lunchtime came, we discovered that we'd left the food on the boat. Greg volunteered to row back to get it. What a guy!|
