San Leandro "Italian" Rendezvous
A beautiful sunny and breezy day on Saturday got us down to San Leandro in a flash. The quartering seas added a good bit of rock-n-roll but all 13 of us made it safely. With help from the San Leandro YC, we even had our own table in the shelter of the clubhouse for our Italian theme dinner. Then inside the clubhouse for our late evening songfest. So sit back and enjoy the great pics thanks to Tim Shea and Bill Higdon. Even download them with a right mouse click and blow them up to full screen on your machine if you like.
