Sailin’ Sunday

This world famous landmark needs no introduction

Today Big D and I went with some friends on a chartered boat cruise around San Francisco bay, departing from Sausalito.  After we finished the cruise, we jumped in the car, drove over the Golden Gate bridge and had dinner in San Francisco.

It’s days like today that remind me why I moved back to this area.

  1. So, you don’t miss the crap shack and the east coast? Oh, I don’t go sailing either, can’t swim and scared of water. I guess it’s true , “the soul afraid of dying never learns to live.” That bridge looks awful high up too. What if there was an earthquake while you were on it. I think that area has tremors a lot. Sorry, I’ll shut up now.

  2. We had one guy that wouldn’t get on the boat. His excuse? “I saw that photo of the whale taking out the yacht a couple weeks ago…”

    Yet he rides a motorcycle on a regular basis. Go figure.

    Regarding the bridge… if an earthquake were to happen that is the one place I would want to be. That bridge handles earthquakes very well as it is a suspension bridge, so by it’s very design it is good at flexing and absorbing energy. This is in direct contrast to its cousin just around the corner that lost a section during the 1989 Loma Prieta earthquake. That bridge is currently having half of it’s length replaced with a brand new structure scheduled to open 25 years after the earthquake that shook a section out of the older part.
