Sky on Friday

This is a pretty standard view of the sky during the summertime in California. I also wanted to show you my club officer flag. This is the rear commodore flag.

Two weekends ago we went to the Village West Yacht Club for a yacht club cruise. We had a wonderful weekend.

When we left and entered the main channel we were boarded by the sheriff's department. Blue lights, siren and we were surrounded by two patrol boats. We were asked to put our vessel in neutral and prepare to be boarded. It was quite fun. Really, since we are both retired law enforcement.



We're off to the boat shortly, but I promise that I will visit everyone that visits me when I return on Sunday. Have a terrific weekend everyone.

  5. Bad boys, bad boys..
    whatcha gonna do, whatchya gonna do
    when they come for you...

    sorry, do waterway sheriff's have a theme song?

    Glad you could take it in stride. We were pulled over on the interstate in NY and ticketed for no seatbelts, was our fault, and the officer was doing his job. But it was costly, $135 each!!!

    Bad boys.. bad boys...

    Have a great weekend!

  7. Well, I hope they didn't cite you. Sounds like a fun way to spend some free time, on a boat.

  8. But why did they board you? Sounds scary - well a teeny bit.

  9. I'd be willing to bet you didn't give them any lip either or need a "Beer Summit" afterward to patch up your differences.

    Have a great weekend on the Delta, Sandee!

  10. Hope you have a great weekend. Why was your boat stopped?

  11. Nice picture, have a nice weekend too! :)

  12. There wasn't any probable cause for stopping us. That's a complaint by many that are being stopped. They told us that they were just checking boats for safety issues and they wanted to be very high profile. They were indeed very high profile. We understand that approach. I'm sure that there have been some issues in that area and they are removing those issues by being high profile.

    They just inspected our vessel and let us go. Nothing to it.

  25. Well I suppose we should be glad the law enforcement is doing their jobs, you could be a smuggler...instead of a giggler! Have a great weekend

  30. Oh I like that flag! If it was small enough, you could wear that anchor on a chain around your neck. Of course if it was big, you'd drown ;)

  36. Welcome to Sky Looking!

    Well Sandee, I see they didn't keep you or you would tell us that you are writing this from the brig.

    On our lake they (sheriff and crew) are boarding boats to check for drinking while boating. They have a magistrate and medical person along to give permission for doing a forced blood test if the boat driver doesn't submit to a breathalizer test. A lot of arrests have been made.

    Oh yes, does the rear admiral ride in the rear of the boat all the time? I hope you can get promoted to front admiral. I like your flag.

    Gotta love that water. And the beautiful clear sky!

    ReplyDelete
  38. I could stand to see that view. Yeah, I think I could. *smile*

    So, you had fun during a stop and search, huh? I guess I could see that would be amusing for you two. Wonder why they felt the need to search you, though.

    Nifty flag!
    Hugs and blessings,

  41. I'd have been scared silly to be pulled over! You are a far, far braver person than I am. ;-)

    ReplyDelete
  42. Lovely view! I love the flaglet. It's postcard perfect.

    Thank you for the visit at my entry but sorry for visiting back late. So many things come up my way so the delay.

    I hope you are having a wonderful weekend!

  43. I hate when I get pulled over... so I never speed and I've never had a speeding ticket. I've never driven a boat either though. We're a little short on ocean here.

    I like the flag. Do all rear commodore flags look the same?

    ReplyDelete
  44. Hi Marilyn - yes all rear commodore flags look the same. Well on the West coast anyway. They may be different on the East coast. As for other countries, I don't have a clue. :)

    ReplyDelete

    I am sure the boarding makes for a good story...
