Yesterday we anchored in a little harbor on the north side of Santa Cruz Island next to a catamaran. We paddled over to say hello and met Kyber and his 7-month-old son. Kyber is from Santa Barbara and has been cruising aboard his boat for 17 years. Along with some local knowledge about catching lobsters and scallops, he gave us a multi-tool called a Lighterbro, which he invented and sells around the world.
Kyber told us about a nearby spot called Pirates Cove, a magical little cove tucked behind some cliffs where a waterfall trickles into the sea and seals splash in the water. We dinghies over and it was just as special as he had promised. Both girls decided to write journal entries when we returned and asked me to post them here.

Pirate Cover is a magical place!!! There are seals swimming in every spot and urchins on the rocks in every space!!! Anemones twirling everywhere. The water is super warm!!! It is very calm!!! I felt sad when we left because I loved it there!!!

The warm water was glistening. Fish swam around us. We were in Pirate Cove. There was sunshine streaming down into the cove. Baby seals spalshed and played with clams and other sea life. A waterfall trickled down the smooth rocks. There were all kinds of sea creatures on them. Not many people know about this place, but if you look hard enough you may come across Pirates Cove.
