San Francisco – Sunset Sailing

August 16, 2015

We booked a last minute trip to San Francisco and got here yesterday morning. Unfortunately, John was hit with a fever/cold on Friday so he spent most of the day just trying to pop his ears from the flights in, so we didn’t have much of a chance to explore. Thankfully I had been in touch with a blast from the past who last minute suggested we come to the marina for a sunset cruise. How could we turn that down? It was just low key enough for John and the weather/sunset were the perfect photo op I had missed all day. Thanks again Angela for the hospitality and being awesome as always!


Our gracious hosts for the evening

We were waiting for a few people to jump on the boat as the sun was setting. It’s hard to tell because I only had my wide angle lenses, but it was just this HUGE fireball setting behind the Golden Gate Bridge. Beautiful sight.

The clouds were out enough to catch the glow, yes!

Tacking or jibing or something…

    A sailing boat around the bay with great views of the shoreline, Alcatraz and Golden Gate Bridge. Our best experience in San Francisco.
