Leaving San Francisco
After a wonderful time with Weston at Paige and Eric’s, Paige dropped us off at Pier 35 in San Francisco where the Island Princess was waiting. It was tough to say goodbye to Weston who wanted to wait and watch us leave. Our check in was quick and we quickly found Sheila and Seldon in the buffet. They had spent a couple of days in SF and enjoyed it. It was a beautiful early evening for our sail away but as always the closer the bridge we got the cooler and windier it got. The nice part was no fog, so we got great views of the bridge and San Francisco as we sailed away. We have sailed under the bridge several times and of course every time it looks like the ship is going to hit it, but again it glided beneath it without incident. Now we are looking forward to three days at sea and the exploration of the Island Princess, because it is our first time on this ship.
