San Francisco. ..and a whale keeps us company

A foggy trip to SF - needed radar to keep an eye on small boats not showing on AIS.
Big swell all the way, especially where the water was shallow.
Saw a whale spout in the distance outside the Golden Gate -and then, just as I was organising the genoa, in the sudden good wind inside the GG, it surfaced right beside 'Nereida'....! Of course, it disappeared before I could grab my camera!!
I finally enjoyed a short-lived sail before turning in towards the St Frances Y.C who are making me feel welcome and where I'll be staying while I get a few jobs done and see several friends.
Had a beautiful, long, hot shower immediately after tying up - how great it is to enjoy the simple things in life!!
