Day 2 in San Francisco started with a trip to Crissy Fields, the area that sits below the Golden Gate. There just so happened to be an air show in the area, and WOW was it amazing! The Blue Angels impressed, along with many other planes. It was a dream to sit on the beach, framed by the Golden Gate to our left and Alcatraz to our right.
As we walked to the beach, I was stunned when a fighter jet flew over me. It was much too close for comfort and it continues to impress me how amazing our military planes and pilots are. I was so shocked by the speed, sound and sight of the plane so close overhead, I froze, unable to click a picture! The Blue Angels had the best performance of the show!
This is a video of a United Airlines airliner, which felt much too close for comfort. The goal was to show the capabilities of the plane, but it did nothing but freak me out. A plane that large felt dangerous that low, with that many people around.
After the air show, as we drove back to Noe Valley, we swung by AT&T Park, where the San Francisco Giants play. The park is tucked in nicely among the rest of downtown, and right on the water. We walked around McCovey Cove, the body of water that Barry Bonds sent many a baseball!
The statue for Willie McCovey, the beloved slugging first baseman for the Giants.
