Cruising San Francisco Bay

While we were in San Francisco it was C's 25th birthday......DD1 had booked a sunset cruise under Golden Gate Bridge and around San Francisco Bay as a birthday surprise for her.  To our surprise there were very few people on the boat which made it a very pleasant experience......not to mention far easier to take photos
The cruise lasted about 2 hours and took us all round the bay including going under Golden Gate Bridge at sunset [I've made a separate page for that]......we had a very nice buffet.....live music......and chatted to people of various nationalities.....including an American couple who wanted to know all about our National Health Service!!
C loved the evening....as did the rest of us.....not so sure about the taxi ride back to our hotel.....as the driver decided we needed to experience some of the steepest hills in San Francisco.....which was a bit like going on a roller coaster ride!!

Gosh, from a smooth ride by sea to a rough one on the land - we usually expect it the other way round. Those little themed decorations are perfect for your nautical page, aren't they!

It sounds wonderful. A birthday never to be forgotten. I'm agreeing with Alexa..that little yacht embellishment is lovely

Ah yes, I remember THAT hill - did he take you down it? Brilliant layouts again, Jacky.
