Wish there were some pictures of this past weekend of attempting to Moor at Angel Island, it's always an adventure there. I've done it a few times, not easy but was able to pull it off somehow - always with help from someone with an outboard on their dinghy. This time I was ready with … Continue reading Moorings @ Angel Island
One of the many advantages to boat ownership is having a floating condominium here in the Bay Area. A few months ago my husband was invited to an all day event in the city, including a really nice dinner with an overnight stay. I suggested we skip the overnight stay in the hotel and just … Continue reading South Beach weekend liveaboard
Every other Friday, weather permitting, we have a sail out to a destination for lunch. This was supposed to be a way for me to meet other sailor friends and have some fun. The people available on Friday's are retired, and in the Bay Area retired means 80 years old. OK, nothing wrong with that, … Continue reading Sail Outs

The NYE plan was to anchor by Treasure Island to watch the San Francisco fireworks until I … Continue reading Happy New Year!!
This is a little touch & go usually, last year I went out both days. This year I was planning on going out on Saturday with the same crew from last year, my pilot friends with their family. Then I took some childhood friends out a few weeks ago who asked to go on Sunday, … Continue reading Prepping for Fleet Week SF
Forgot how much I like flying the drone when it comes back and mission accomplished. They asked me to take some pictures of a regatta that was a few miles out, I haven't practiced launching (or landing) from a boat so I had to do it on land. There are a ton of FAA restrictions … Continue reading Drone Shots
Got to be a tourist this past week while my husband had an engineering conference up there. I've been there a few times for work related things, have never really checked it out. It's booming! That's either good or bad, depending on the companies that are creating that boom with rising housing prices. Here in … Continue reading Seattle
9.4.18: Let your mind wander, and make sure to write down the peaks and valleys of your journey. You are exploring new mental territories, and they demand being recorded and shared. Take heart if you experience writer’s block. Slow down and pace yourself through your cerebral landscape. The words may not come quickly, but they will … Continue reading Horoscope for Today
I was on the water all week, either in Tahoe or here in the Bay area. Sailing is taking a boat out and waiting for everything to go wrong, picking and choosing your battles. Our father's day plan was that I would take my husband out to Angel Island for the night on the moorings … Continue reading Windsurfing Committee Boat
Getting a lot of sailing in this week, took a crew to Sam's yesterday for lunch in Tiberon. Somehow I joined the cruising crew every other Friday and just found out yesterday it's a retired crew, most along for the ride. My morning shift at the golf course was all retired too (because really, that's … Continue reading Water Weekend!!
