It has been more of a challenge to get good internet than we imagined. Our phones have not had much better success. We are now (1week) in San Diego and will catch you up 🤗
Labor Day we got up at 04:30 to catch a favorable time to enter San Francisco Bay around 11:00. We had a nice sail which became more robust by the time we got to Sausalito.
At noon we spied our family waiting in a line. We mingled with the line and then saw Colton and asked don’t we know you? It was a fun time to see our nieces Ashley (Petaluma) and Carrie (Walnut Creek) and their families. It was blowing about 20 knots with higher gusts so we opted to just look at the boat rather than go out.
We had a nice lunch and did some errands (thanks Kent) and then topped it off with ice cream cones and a stroll along the Sausalito waterfront. Soon we had to say our goodbyes so great to see everyone so healthy and happy.
We stayed at Schoonmaker marina in Sausalito as we had a upcoming Baja Ha Ha meeting right in Sausalito in the following days.
We enjoyed the beauty of Sausalito and sailed back here from SF a couple of times.
We anchored at Clipper cove for a couple of days. This is by Treasure Island and we virtually had it to ourselves. We marveled being in the city under the Oakland Bridge on our hook.
We flew to CO for one last celebration of Colorado Mountain College. We enjoyed the beginning of the fall colors as we traveled back and forth over the mountain passes.
We had a couple of opportunities to go to the Giants (one against the Dodgers the other the Rockies)games (thanks Bill H and sister Jane).
This is a beautiful ball park with the famed McCovey cove where the dingers get scooped up by boaters.
