Some of the best plans go by the wayside when you’re boating. Yesterday morning we left Benicia heading toward Ballena Bay. We got into the San Pablo Bay and rocked and rolled. We all decided that this wasn’t what we wanted to do for 3-4 hours. We turned around and headed for Napa Valley Yacht Club.

We had a wonderful dinner at the yacht club last night and met lots of their members. A great time had by all.

The following three pictures are our view this beautiful Saturday morning.

One of our boating buddies is making us breakfast and after a bit were going to visit the Blues, Brews and BBQ festival they are having this weekend.

      I'm not a beer drinker so no, but the blues and the BBQ is perfect. πŸ™‚

    Sounds like a great decision, no need to rough it unless you have to.

      The water on San Pablo Bay was awful. We were stressed out after about 20 minutes. We turned around and headed for calm water. πŸ™‚

    Glad you got out of there and back to calmer waters. The BBQ sounds yummy. Have a great week end.

      The water was horrible. Once we got in the Napa river all was well. πŸ™‚

    It's nice to be flexible and make different plans when the first plans just don't work. Enjoy!

      With boating you can do that a lot. The water can be like glass or it will be the worst ride ever. We don't like those terrible rides. πŸ™‚

    You make it sound so inviting and I'm a confirmed landlubber. I'm envious of anyone visiting Napa.

      We spend about a third of our time on our boat. We love all things boating. Napa has been fun. πŸ™‚

    Beautiful photos, Sandee! I hope you continue to enjoy your time!

    • August 27, 2017 7:37 am at 7:37 am

      We are enjoying our time. It's been a fun time, but a bit too warm. πŸ™‚

    Looks like that was a very good decision! What a beautiful place to be! Enjoy!

    • August 27, 2017 7:38 am at 7:38 am

      This has been a very wonderful change of plans. Great place to visit. πŸ™‚

    Sounds like a smart move to me. Ah the life of a boater (lucky!). πŸ™‚

    • August 27, 2017 7:41 am at 7:41 am

      It's a wonderful life 99% of the time. There is that 1% where you need to change your plans. πŸ™‚

  11. August 26, 2017 6:51 pm at 6:51 pm

    Blues and BBQ,Man I so wish I could be there with ya!!

    • August 27, 2017 7:42 am at 7:42 am

      The place was packed and then some. πŸ™‚

  12. August 26, 2017 7:07 pm at 7:07 pm

    It looks like you made a wise decision, the Blues will be a lot more enjoyable than the rocking and rolling you were in for, those pictures look so calm.

    • August 27, 2017 7:42 am at 7:42 am

      It sure was a lot more enjoyable that that ride was going to be. I hate it when the water is that bad. πŸ™‚

  13. August 27, 2017 6:29 pm at 6:29 pm

    Beautiful shots! It sounds like a fun experience. πŸ™‚

    • August 28, 2017 10:38 am at 10:38 am

      We had a great time here. πŸ™‚

    It looks like calmer waters prevailed :). I so miss being on the water.

    • August 29, 2017 6:53 am at 6:53 am

      San Pablo Bay was awful. This was a much better alternative that 3-4 hours of jaw clenching water. πŸ™‚

  15. July 6, 2018 5:23 am at 5:23 am

    Absolutely beautiful. I wish I could come visit and go with you and Zane just for a day. That is a wish of mine. And to meet you and Zane in person, and just have the best time of my life before I am gone β™₯ β™₯ β™₯ β™₯
