I've anchored here - the only natural deep water harbor between San Diego and somewhere much farther north.
I was told that the curved jetty was built by ballast rocks from the clipper ships.
Paddling the kayak around that harbor on a moonless night is a truly dark experience. But when I found myself out at the entrance (hidden under Vlad's left wing) it was obvious - next stop Asia. I turned around and went back to my sailboat.
