Spencer came for a visit about 10:15 am and after lunch, we headed out for a sail.
A brisk westerly was blowing as we left port, and skies were mostly overcast with a high marine layer.
I loaned Spencer my older digital camera so he could take photos on our sailing safari.
The tops of the financial district buildings were shrouded in fog.
A nice looking traditional sailboat was heading north with full canvas and sailing beautifully!
As she passed to starboard, we could see that she had a club footed jib attached to a traveler which made her self-tacking for easy beating upwind.
Gradually the skies started to clear and, as we approached the Bay Bridge, behind us the Ferry Building was enjoying some hazy sunshine.
After sailing under the A-B span of the Bay Bridge, we were now basking in sunshine, as was the bridge.
The financial district was now enjoying brilliant sunshine as well.
We came about and headed back toward home port, enjoying views of the sights on shore, like the bow and arrow sculpture...
...and the new restaurant close to the waterfront.
Financial district buildings were now in clear air and looking vivid in the midday sun.
We sailed out into the central bay and then tacked into the lee of pier 35 to douse sail and get ready to land, then motored around the pier and into the marina.
