KFOG Kaboom

Last Saturday night we headed into the city to watch the incredible fireworks sponsored by KFOG, a local radio station. The fireworks were launching from a barge in the middle of the San Francisco bay, and we felt as though we had won the lottery with our front-row seats from a kayak
. Our group from City Kayak shared the bay with lots of other fun-loving vessels: sailboats, yachts, motorboats, speedboats, rowboats...BOATS. The feel was that of a giant party on the water, and we were invited.

When the fireworks started it was like
watching a 3D movie set to music (the Star Wars theme, the Beatles' Revolution--those are the ones that stick in mine and Steve's head). The water was reverberating with every explosion. We were so close that at one point the Coast Guard megaphoned our little yak cluster to get the heck back, in so many words. Good times.

It was unforgettable and I'm so happy we got to experience it together. I know I say this all the time, but it is really great to live here.
