Explore California: San Francisco Bay and the Blue Angels

A few months ago we had the opportunity to go to San Francisco as part of a work weekend for Brett's job. Brett's boss has family that work on boats in the San Francisco Bay so they took employees, family, and friends out on the Bay to watch the Blue Angels show during Fleet Week. I had seen the Blue Angels once as a teenager and it was impressive, but it was a different experience to see it from the water as they flew directly above us. During this weekend I was about 24 weeks pregnant, and sometimes you could tell, but other times, not so much!

^ Just after we took off from the dock and headed out into the Bay. Rules stated that the boat had to keep moving, so we went all the way from the dock in Oakland, around the Golden Gate Bridge and back.

^ The number of boats out on the Bay was fascinating. And there were so many different types of boats, too. People watching was pretty great as we passed all the different groups out to watch the show.

^ We love finger foods! And Martinelli's Sparkling Cider! And mostly this picture is just proof that my hair looked good before we got out in the wind. 

^ The Bay Bridge between Treasure Island and the Financial District of San Francisco.

^ Alcatraz Island. I promised Brett that next time we were in San Francisco for a few days we would go out on a tour. This time we only had a little less than two days so we didn't want to spend a significant chunk of that time on one excursion. 

^ The Golden Gate Bridge in all its glory. Also on the list for next time, biking across with a baby in tow!

Until next time, San Francisco! It was a great weekend and we can't wait to do it again.
