On Wednesday we leave to begin our annual bay cruise. We have lots of stops to make and there are activities that we will all enjoy. The very best part of the cruise is getting together with our friends who love to boat. What we are doing is camping out on the water, with lots of comforts of home. All our boats have staterooms, heads with a shower, and a full galley. It's in a smaller area but we have all the comforts of home. Along with those things we have heat and air conditioning. So we are pretty comfortable for the entire cruise.
On Wednesday we head to the boat and unload everything that we didn't bring last weekend. All non essential things have been removed from the boat to afford us more room for all the clothing and other items needed during our 11 day cruise. We do this each year and just get better and better at knowing what to take and what to leave behind.
Our first stop in Pittsburg Municipal for gasoline and a pump out. We then spend the night on the municipal docks and go into town for dinner. There are lots of really great places to dine. On Friday we head to Benicia Yacht Club for our bay cruise kick off weekend and dinner. We all love Benicia as there is so much to do. Then on Sunday morning we head out for the Corinthian Yacht Club in Belvedere. We'll stay there for two nights. The next stop is South Beach @ Pier 40 in San Francisco. You can run all over the city from this wonderful harbor.
Then on Friday October 7th hubby and I leave South Beach and head back toward home while the rest of the group goes to Sausalito. I guess I didn't tell you that we joined our fourth yacht club and there's a youth day on Saturday the 8th. Hubby will be giving the kids rides on our run about and I'll be baiting hooks and other duties as assigned. We've joined the Ebony Boat Club. One of our favorite destinations. Since we hang out with these folks all the time we thought it a good idea to join. Life is good.
