Turns out we anchored in the middle of the local ocean swimming venue. We met lots of swimmers who would stop bythe boat to dog paddle and answer questions about the nearest laundry and grocery store. A very convenient feature in a new anchorage.

Relative motion. The motion, big wind and the solid concrete breakwater 200 ft behind us finally convinced us to move after 3 nights. We never did drag, the bottom of the Aquatic Park is good stuff.

The view (and the price) were impossible to beat.
