Abby Sails Away

I wasn't able to see Abby Sunderland off on Saturday like I had planned (I have been watching her blog and been waiting for this day) as I had a photo shoot in Encinitas. But my husband Ian was nice enough to go down to Marina del Rey and take a lot of great shots for me - I almost felt like I was there. He was able to get a ride on someone's boat so he could get these shots of her going through the harbor and out to sea.

In case you don't know about Abby... She is 16. She is sailing around the world by herself. Non Stop. In a 40 ft boot called Wild Eyes. She will be the youngest person (male or female) to accomplish this. Abby is RAD!
