Fleet Week SF - Blue Angels this weekend
For all my San Franciscan friends who have lived here less than 2 years, you're in for a treat this weekend. Well, it'll be a treat if you like seeing a pretty damn unique show and don't mind the terrifying sound and can ignore the militaristic propaganda subtext.

The Blue Angels will be doing their traditional Fleet Week show this weekend, at 3pm on both Sat. and Sun. They didn't do the show last year, so I'm excited they're back. It's really an awesome sight to see the jets in formation with the city as their backdrop. I think it's beautiful.

Here are some great locations for viewing them:

- Any portion of Russian Hill or Pac Heights or the Cow Hollow/Marina area as long as you have a view of the bay

- Alta Plaza Park (Pac Heights)

- Dolores Park (Mission-Dolores)

- A tall building with an unobstructed view to the north.

Thanks for the reminder. We're going to try out the sundeck today and see how that works. The view to the North isn't that great though.

I think they're beautiful to watch, and very moving, but I worry so much about disasters, knock wood. I'm just journal hopping, I liked your icon, trying to avoid sleep -- haven't done this in soooo long.

I know what you mean. reeniecooks and I were talking about that as we watched them fly in tight formation over the mansions of Pacific Heights.

Thanks for stopping by!
