Last night I attended a Birthday party on the Zinfandel Yacht out of the Alameda Harbor. It was fantastic! I never even fathomed that we would be going under the Bay Bridge and having the most amazing views of The City.
It was 6:30 p.m. and the sun was going down. We all boarded the yacht. With it being such a hot day, we went immediately up to the top deck to cool off and find a seat. As the Birthday Boy boarded the boat, we headed back downstairs to say our hello’s and Happy Birthday. Big hugs too.
I don’t really want to get into then whole logistics of the party. What I really want to talk about is the views of The City. The memories it carries for me and how much I enjoyed remembering them last night.
As I watched the sunset over the Bay I realized what I was looking at. The Bay Bridge with The City in the background. I was in awe. Frozen to the amazing view. I found an open window and just stared.
I am still a little baffled at how to exactly explain how I was feeling. I was happy. Excited. Calm. Just to name a few. Even a little sad. I had memories flying through my head of the great times that I have had there.
San Francisco is the first City that I had fallen in love with. It’s as pure and simple as that. I am so happy that I was able to experience the views of The City at night from the Bay again. It had been too many years. The last time was with my friend, Taylor, one 4th of July when I was 27, or 28. What a night that was! Another story, for another day. 😉
