So the Blue Angels were here for Fleet Week. I wasn’t well enough to cope with the crowds and transportation hassles to get to a paid seat where we could see all the action, but there was quite a lot to be seen from my own balcony and rooftop and then (Sunday) from the Embarcadero (a brief walk from my home).
Yes, it’s an expensive, polluting display of America’s military might. But it also looks like a lot of fun! Next year I definitely want to be up close.
Consider the Blue Angels airshow from Top of the Mark next year. Make sure to get reservations. It’s a great vantage point for 2/3 – 3/4 of all the Blue Angel patterns all over the Bay. Fat Albert flew right past us before dropping onto the Wharf, and the diamond formation did several very close passes. And you miss all the traffic 🙂
Thanks – that sounds like a fabulous idea!
