On Saturday, a friend rented a sailboat (see picture...Radiance) for the day and invited others (including me) to join him. This is the second time that I've been out with him this summer. The day was perfect...sunny, warm, a little slow on the wind-side, but that picked up later in the day. We left from the Alameda Marina, headed North and around the time we hit the Bay Bridge, the wind picked up and we were able to actually get some real speed. We found our way to Tiburon, found a berth (woohoo!) next to Sam's, were seated right away and had some drinks/appetizers. We made it back about an hour after sunset.
After that, I headed over to another friend's house for some dinner. He lives high up in an apartment that overlooks the Bay/Alcatraz and just as I arrived watched a fireworks performance that was taking place somewhere around Fisherman's Wharf. Not sure what was going on there, but we were all happy for them. Then it was time for some George Foreman grilled lamb and wine...yum yum yum! Not a bad Saturday, huh?
