Blue Angels etc, etc.

We braved the OTW madness that is Fleet week on SF bay. Jerry and Leann joined us and we shoved off from South Beach.
IMG_2389 Conditions were excellent so we steamed out to  Bonita cove, over to Sausalito and then to the back side of Angel Island where we anchored up for lunch.IMG_2392We don’t need another Gyros
IMG_2394 IMG_2395 I saw guys in Adventure Islands navigating the NW corner of Alcatraz which features wind,  7 knot current, wash rocks and thousands of boat wakes. Balls of Steel I say.IMG_2398 2 cruise ships in port.IMG_2399 Air show was amazing for the crew but I spent the day on bridge dodging all manner of watercraft in VERY close quarters. So the quality and quantity of pics was adversely affected. I worked from Crissy Field to Ft Mason and over to the Blossom Rock side down to Alcatraz for 4 hrs jockeying with Tug Boats, anchored craft, people drifting with the tide, Party Boats, Sailboats, Ferries,  and the Jeremiah Obrien but the crew kept the bridge supplied  with a  compensatory supply of  libations.IMG_2411 IMG_2413 IMG_2434 This cat ran right up my ass twice and I had to take strong evasive maneuvers.IMG_2441 Angels put on a shock and awe kind of show.IMG_2450 IMG_2453 IMG_2458 IMG_2462 IMG_2464 IMG_2466 IMG_2467 IMG_2469 Got within 15 feet of this guy twice.IMG_2472 IMG_2479 IMG_2485 IMG_2491 IMG_2493 IMG_2499 IMG_2505Good times albeit a bit busy for the Captain.
