Click on the words “A day on the bay, SF that is” above to see this post as it was meant to be viewed.
On my way to get a haircut, a neighbor suggested I come along on a boat trip to SF Bay and watch billionaires play with their toys (America’s Cup).
Me, my shaggy hair and camera went along.
We had a grand time on a grand boat as one very large boat raced around for a few minutes. I think it won. Meanwhile, dozens of America’s Cup patrol boats zoomed around protecting the course. The SFFD, SFPD, NPS and USCG rounded out the effort with their own patrol boats. I may have seen a Russian submarine briefly surface with what looked like Edward Snowden atop the sail. Or was that a harbor porpoise off in the distance.
Some images from the day follow (most all of them are straight out of the camera and not at their best (due to time constraints).
