Sailing San Francisco Bay from Point Richmond (pics)...
I thought I would share some photos I took during an afternoon sailing on a friend's boat on San Francisco Bay. I got some shots of Angel Island, the Golden Gate Bridge, and other boats out on the water that day. I hope you enjoy it!

It was a great afternoon. I hope you enjoyed the trip!

Back in the late 80's I was invited along to work as a crew member on a sailboat during a race on the San Francisco Bay by a co-worker. I believe it was a J-24 sailboat, and they needed me for ballast as I was around 260 lbs at the time.
At one point during the day, I caught something out of the corner of my eye right next to our boat that I could swear was the back of a whale breaking the surface of the water and then going back under. It was about 15 feet off the side of our boat, and it really spooked me. But then I was left wondering if I'd really seen anything or it was my imagination.
