Baja Ha-Ha Cruisers Rally Welcome Party

I had a wonderful day at Downwind Marine in Point Loma, attending the Baja Ha-Ha Cruisers Rally welcome to San Diego Party! One of the attendees, Tom Evans, pictured below in the patchwork pants with Debbie Hartjoy, is excited about the Baja Ha-Ha. He says, “I enjoy my work but I just can’t fit it in anymore.”
