SF Fleet Week

This is the next of many posts for the 31st of December - I'm trying to clear up the backlog so we can start afresh in 2016 - and I don't want to miss blogging about any of the hikes/day trips. This post is about the SF Fleet Week - we went to see the Blue Angels. We took the Caltrain in anticipating a lot of road traffic, and boy, did that turn out to be a good decision. MUNI was running a tram from the Caltrain station so we got to Pier 39 really easily, found a spot to stand with a good view of the aerial acrobatics, and settled down to watch. There was quite a crowd!

The sea lions at Pier 39 were really upset when the Blue Angels began their show - most jumped into the water when the planes flew overhead!

The trip back was interesting - we took a slow bus from some inside street to the Caltrain station, caught the train just in time and made it back home. Took us about 1.5 hours for the whole thing - we met a friend at Pier 39, he had driven in from Fremont. Took him 3 hours to get home.

We had a thoroughly enjoyable day, but I doubt we'll repeat this outing. Ending this post with a couple of picture of the show:
