The Weather is here, wish you were beautiful!

WOW! What a weekend we had attending the last three Dead shows by boat in SF. We had a slip right next to the venue and walked the 150 yards each night for the show. In the meantime, we had 3 great sails, 3 amazing tailgates in McCovey Cove and 25 friends visiting. After 58 years, the Dead have decided to stop touring and these were the final shows. On the last night we had an amazing drone show above Oracle Park. The band played all their hits and more. They did a group hug at the end and we headed to the boat and got some rain to finish the night. I was exhausted but very happy in the aftermath. I have a busy weekend this weekend with 3 sails coming up. The first is a fishing sail, HOS next and then a trip to the ballpark to see the Red Sox play the Giants. Batten down the hatches!

A little bit of summer

Just returning from a family trip to Sausalito. We stayed at a resort near the Golden Gate Bridge. While the rest of the bay was in the 80's and above, we were in winter with big wind and temps in the low 60's. It cleared enough for the fireworks show and that was great. Got home to Fremont area with a 20 degree difference in temps. The fog was intense and beautiful as it came over the hilside. I plan to sail the next few days and then next week we move the boat to SF and the marina next to the ball park. The Dead are playing their very last shows after an almost 60 year career. The bus stops here. Lots of friends stopping by and sailing and tailgating as we are going to all three shows. Should be a blast!
