Normally I would have no interest in America's Cup (and still don't actually) but I had an awesome opportunity yesterday to watch the race from the rooftop penthouse of a 25 story building on (S)Nob Hill in San Francisco. My son and DIL in San Mateo have my perfect little grandkids in a Montessori elementary school and once a year they hold auctions to raise money for the school. They bid on and won this prize: Invitation for 20 friends to watch a day of America Cup racing from the penthouse rooftop at the top of Nob Hill complete with full bar and lunch of lamb chops and chicken/veges shish-ke-bob. Three of his guests dropped out, so at the last minute Friday night he reached down to the bottom of the barrel and found me, DH and my best friend! Since we never have something better to do anyway, we jumped right in! I took some pics and want to share them.
Oracle/USA Team is blue sail ad New Zealand/Kiwi Team is red. Here they race towards the Golden Gate past North Beach. St. Peter and Paul Cathedral in foreground.
