Hi everyone and happy Tuesday! Sorry to be MIA yesterday…I usually blog on Monday’s but yesterday just slipped away and before I new it, it was 5pm and by then I don’t like putting up a blog post that late in the evening so I decided to wait until today!
I want to use today’s post as a recap of the fun we had Saturday to celebrate part 2 of our Anniversary celebration. We celebrated with tickets for the Hornblower Cruise, and this particular event was being sponsored by Chandon which of course included all you can drink Chandon wines and champagne – yes please! 😉 – and during the cruise we would be entertained by the Blue Angels show and passed appetizers…sounded good to me!
Below is a recap of the photos from the fun day we had…and we had quite an extravaganza getting up to the city too. We took Caltrain which was fine, but then tried to figure out how to get to the Hornblower dock without us having to walk the 1.5 miles since my boots were definitely not made for walking. So we crossed our fingers and hopped on the Muni bus (a first for us!) and we didn’t know what we were doing, but thankfully we made it to the Embarcadero station and from there walked a bit to the dock…it was a fun lil excursion 😉
And we could not have asked for more perfect weather. If you’re from around here, then you know that San Francisco is known for chilly temps and fog, but none of that happened on Saturday. Temps were in the mid 70’s and we had clear blue skies all day…it was absolutely perfect. And I don’t have any pics of our food (try taking still photos while in 4 inch stiletto boots while on a swaying boat ;)), but we do have lots of other scenic photos that I want to share with you all…enjoy!
I have to take a moment and mention too how absolutely amazing and emotional the Blue Angels show was for me. I had never before experienced jets fly over my head that close to me before and just imagining the men in those planes doing that for us was just a very emotional, powerful feeling for me. And we met a lovely couple whose son is a Military Fighter Pilot and hearing them speak of their son with these powerful planes soaring above us really brought on an emotional feeling inside me…it made me so proud of our country and how grateful and proud I am to be an American. Todd and I already made
planes plans to definitely go again next year along with the whole family as it definitely reminded me of my dad since he’s a pilot and he would have loved the show so very much…until next year Blue Angels 🙂
Have you ever seen the Blue Angels show before?
