The Weather is Here, Wish You Were Beautiful

Oh what a lovely weekend in Norcal.  70's sunny and windy.  Went out to Craig's Cove a couple times for swimming and beach time.  I had been there a week ago and lost a kayak paddle.  Long story but  when I swam up to the beach a week later, there was the paddle.  My lucky day!  The beach is next to a steep cliff on Angel.  No way to get there except a swim or kayak.  The highest wind we saw over the weekend was 22 knots off of Pt. Blunt on Angel.  Did you know that all the points and top of Angel are named after a military ship's officers?  The British ship, called HMS Raccoon, was sinking in the early 1800's and they beached on Angel Island for repairs.  The water way also bears their name: Racoon Strait.  Be sure to share that when someone asks, "Why do they call it Raccoon Strait?"

Have a great week!  We at H2uh0 are gearing up for a big month in April.  We are celebrating 10 years of H2uh0 with a look back at our most popular posts as well as the new stuff.  Hope you will stick around for the party!  We will also be offering a ride on our sweet boat Addiction to a few lucky readers.  So come on, let's party like it's 1999!
