Remember season 5, episode 67 of Sex and the City where it was Fleet Week in NYC and Carrie and her gals went out and about the town to meet some sailor boyzz? I love SATC if you couldn't tell. And I wanted to be Carrie Bradshaw in that episode this past weekend, since it was Fleet Week in San Francisco. Just kidding! Okay, no I'm not. I'm being serious, I really wanted to be her, but don't spread the word on that.
One of the main events during Fleet Week is the air show, with the Blue Angels headlining the whole thing. Last year was a total failure when it came to seeing the air show. So this year I heading to the Marina Greens where I knew I would be able to get a clear view of everything this past Sunday. Helps when you go to the actual site of the air show rather then across town in the opposite direction like I did last year.
Sad thing is, when it was time for the Blue Angels to come on, the fog bank rolled in THICK, making the Blue Angels cancel their run! Missed them again! I can never win. The upside is that the other planes performing before them were pretty amazing to watch.
Anyway, back to what we were talking about earlier. I headed to the North Beach festival after where I had my season 5 - episode 67 Carrie Bradshaw moment.
Heyyyyyyy. Around the Bay Gal Xtine and I made a new friend at Tony Niks in North Beach. I love Fleet Week :).
