My dad passed away very recently after a 9 year long battle with liver cancer. I miss him every day but cherish the memories and laughter that I had with him for the past 32 years. This past weekend my family and I boarded a schooner and sailed under the Golden Gate Bridge to scatter his ashes alongside San Francisco, the city that he loved so much. It was a beautiful day filled with crisp air, an adventure that he would have loved, and a wonderful family. It was a day I will remember for the rest of my life and a trip that he wanted us to take to see the city and bridge as he saw it- magical and one of a kind. Here are some photos of the journey we took, I thought I would share them with you because it was such an amazing ride that I feel so honored to have taken.
(SF Bay Adventures was kind enough to let us use the magnificent Frida B for the afternoon)
(Alcatraz and the city in the distance)
(The fog rolling over the trees)
(The fog came in as we were heading back to Sausalito)
(We toasted him under the bridge)
(A view I never tire of seeing, the fog over Sausalito. It doesn’t get much better than this)
Nick took a lapsed video of the fog hitting Sausalito. This was our day, it was everything that makes the Bay Area perfect and every day I feel so lucky to live here. I know my dad left this world but I feel him all around me, all I have to do is look at the bay and I know he is there.
I am so sorry to hear that. ❤️
