Night Sailing in SF

Some friends told us about a great deal to do night sailing on the Bay so we decided to join them! We thought that by night sailing it meant we'd have chairs and a HUGE boat. Nope! It was more than we sat on the side of a 26' sailboat and prayed we wouldn't get soaked. In the beginning there was a lot fo fear and trepidation but by then end we thought it was awesome!
We took off from Pier 39 around sunset so there are some beautiful pictures of the Golden Gate Bridge and surrounding sights.

Scott and I are mostly dry still after quite the boat rocking!


We went around Treasure Island so on the left is the new bridge being constructed and the old bridge is on the right.

It was so dark that you couldn't take a good picture of Berkeley or the Oakland shipping yard. Just imagine those in the blur!

We also went down to McCovy Cove and saw AT&T park where the Giant's play.

The City skyline.

It was so fun! Thanks Liz & Dave!

Peach Picking

In July I went to Brentwood with Debbie to pick some peaches and nectarines. It only took us an hour or so to pick more than we could eat but it was so fun!
The empty bucket is more representative of me buying more than I need rather than it being the beginning of our picking! (Yes, we both got a second bucket but commonsense took over and we didn't fill them!.)

(Don't worry, only half is mine!)

Here we are with full arms and empty wallets!

It was so fun, we can't wait to go again next year.
