On the Left is the Zinfandel Commodore Yacht
But then we were invited to attend a cruise on San Francisco Bay as a surprise Birthday party for one of hubby's friends. Cool. I've lived here for over 20 years and have never been "on" the bay before. I took my Dramamine and we headed off to Commodore Cruises and Events in Alameda, CA.
The Floating Glass Restaurant of San Francisco Bay" the Zinfandel's dining area is windows all the way around the entire second floor. Note the lighting in the picture above. Below the same room looks as if event lighting was implemented, but it was only the glow of the heat lamp used to keep the prime rib warm.
Another NYE first... I broke out one of my tiaras from my bridal accessory collection and wore it all evening just for fun.
Below on the main deck was a dance floor as well as a small enclosed, windowed area on the bow as you enter the yacht.

As we left Alameda, located in the East Bay right across from downtown Oakland, the approach to the Bay Bridge and the city beyond was really quite lovely.
The Bay Bridge and City Skyline
The only thing that would have made this a more perfect experience would have been to have the Journey song "Lights" playing as the fireworks went off.
I hope everyone had a safe and happy start to the new year. As luck would have it, it rained before the fireworks began, stopped during them, and began again literally seconds after the last firework had lit the sky above the city. I'm taking that as a good sign that things are going to work out for the best this year.
Happy New Year to Everyone!
