Sailing in the San Francisco Bay

A couple of our friends own a boat that is docked here in town and I was lucky enough to get to go sailing with them recently. Unfortunately my other half could not go this time. So sad he missed out as it was a blast! Getting to sail around the bay and see so much from that point of view was amazing! We got to go under the Bay Bridge and see the new construction and we sailed right by Alcatraz. This is actually the closest I have ever been to Alcatraz. You know how it goes when you grow up in an area and take those things for granted. It was such a beautiful, clear day as well and not nearly as cold as I thought it would be. We were out there for hours and the time just flew by. Can’t wait for the next time!

The boat on the right is called the the Millenium Falcon!

This one just cracks me up!

I sure do love where we live!
