SF Bay Opening Day - Fleet Blessing

Made it out to the SF Bay Opening Day this weekend for the first time. We joined remwines and crew at the Sausalito Schoonmaker Point Marina with his 40 ft Down East trawler from Alameda. Meg and I cruised in Friday with FlyWright through 3 hrs of rain storms and wind kicking up 4 ft waves across San Pablo Bay. After 1700, the skies parted and the rains stopped.

Saturday gave us an opportunity to take in the sights and flavors of Sausalito. By Sunday, we were ready for the Blessing of the Fleet. There was a reverend, rabbi and a priest present on the FDR's Floating White House, Potomac, to cover most of the bases.

Here are a few pics of the weekend

Here's where remwine's boat spent the night. He should have used a claw anchor!!

A beautiful 1908 work boat.

All dressed up in her Sunday's Best!!

Thanks for the pic's Al. I really enjoyed the one that looks like my boat was on the beach! You were able to pull that off without Photoshop. I attached a photo I took from the beach to clear that up.

I also attached a picture of FlyWright in the procession bring blessed as she passed the Potomac. Great way to start the season.

After the blessing, we headed down to SF to check out the Opening Day Parade. It started near the Golden Gate Bridge and ended near the Bay Bridge. We even had a B-17 fly over. Had a great time. Here's a few photos.
