The Tigress “turns left”

“Where will you go?”
“Out the Gate and hang a left…”

That’s been the plan and the dream for a very long time. And that’s what we did.

Beautiful San Francisco Bay put on a show, sparkling in the morning light just to make sure we’d know what we are missing. There was a big sloppy swell running off the coast – a bit of a bronco ride. Tigress took it in stride. The bilges and Elena’s baking supplies are still dry. It seemed like any other daysail, except the dock box is empty and the mail forwarded.

After anchoring at Half Moon Bay we opened a special bottle of wine and toasted new adventures. And maybe a nap. We’re anchored in a beautiful sheltered spot near the Maverick’s surf spot and God’s golf tee.

Tonight we’ll decide where and when we go next, or we’ll decide to decide another day.

We miss you already.

Remember, if you bring some chili, you and your family can enjoy dinner for ONLY $5-a bargain if ever there was one!  The chili (all you can eat until its gone)will be accompanied by cornbread, salad, watermelon and brownie sundaes, provided by the club via Atta and Alice Pilram. The winners will have bragging rights for a WHOLE YEAR!!! San Francisco will be providing the fireworks show and hopefully, Mother Nature will stay home with her fog blanket and also enjoy the show! Hope to see you there and don’t forget to RSVP as soon as possible so we don’t overbuy food!    Alice and Atta Pilram and Alice’s mom Jo
