(to prevent sea-sickness), I met Birgit at the San Francisco Sailing Company.
I arrived a bit early so I could photograph the *infamous* Sea Lions at Pier 39. All was still and relatively quiet...very few tourists up and about ..
Even this fellow was sound asleep!
But, this BIG GUY was wide awake! And so were his friends!
I met Birgit and we found our Ship, the Santa Maria.
We boarded, along with fifteen other *brave souls* - and set off..
|The Bay Bridge and some fog and blue skies!|
|Coit Tower and foggy skies..|
Headed West...towards the Fog-Shrouded Golden Gate....
|Nearing the Bridge.... it was really cold and windy, and the waves were beginning to intensify!|
Time for Mimosas!
|You can see we dressed for the occasion! A-ha-ha!|
Sailing directly under the Golden Gate! Too cool!
The waters were definitely getting choppier!
Then, a freighter appeared..... hmmmm..who has the *right of way*?
They did! A-ha-ha!
Whew! That was close!
Sails against the Bridge....it was a glorious experience!
I hope you enjoyed sailing along!
