A long time coming!
29 September 2008 | San Francisco
Well...I FINALLY figured out how to post another entry to this blog!! I was stymied for so long and had given it up so was using the other one (travelswithfaith.blogspot.com) all this time!
We are currently in San Francisco...Emeryville to be exact. We arrived on the 20th and have been enjoying the warm weather, getting things done on the boat and doing a bit of sight seeing while we wait for Michael & Finn to arrive from Portland. What with all the waiting we did in Astoria & Newport for the gales to pass and the stops we made in Eureka & Bodega Bay it took almost a month to get here. Ah...well...we ARE cruising, right?
Yesterday we drove into the City and did the Fisherman's Wharf, Pier 39, Ghirardelli Square thing and then went on to Sausalito for dinner with Chris' cousin & wife. The Maltese Falcon (Tom Perkins' 289' sailing yacht) had arrived on Saturday and was anchored in Richardson Bay so we got a pretty good look at it while we were there.
Today we're back to "projects". This evening we'll sit down and start planning the route to San Diego - via a few special stops. Tomorrow I am taking Chris to see the "Wave Organ". Michael & Finn are to arrive very late tomorrow night and we'll be leaving very early Thursday morning.
Here's to more warm weather...and some actual sailing!
