|Trip #1 to the Angel Island. It takes two trips to get 4 bikes|
and 4 people to shore.
|Flying in formation, just like the Blue Angel's who were scheduled to|
practice today right in front of us, We waited and waited for them but
finally gave up and continued on.
|Great views, and a great bike ride around Angel Island. That's Alcatraz over|
Cindy's right shoulder and San Fran in the background.
|Spectacular views, and no crowds.|
|There are virtually no people here mid-week. We were here on the weekend|
and it was packed with people.
The Blue Angels had a practice scheduled for today, sometime between noon and 5:00. We had hoped to watch them from one of the great viewpoints. We waited quite a while but finally decided to leave. They started their practice when we returned to the dinghy. Bummer. We were only able to see two of the planes fly over us in the moorage, in close formation. They passed over us several times. They were very close, and very fast.
The weather has been spectacular for our visit with clear skies (after the morning fog burns off) and temps in the 80's. Several people have told us how lucky we are to be here this week, and it was cold and foggy all last week.
Friday the 11th we are headed over to Sausalito and hope to see their practice from there with the great view. Saturday morning we leave the Bay area and head to Monterey Bay.
