During the two weeks we spent in the San Francisco Bay area, we kept the boat at Schoonmaker marina in Sausalito.  The marina is one of the few in the area that have dock space for transient boats but besides that, Sausalito is fun place to hang out and explore.  There is a small beach right in the middle of the marina and laundry facilities, grocery shopping and even a West Marine are all within easy biking distance.

Here is a collection of photos taken around the marina and in Sausalito.  Just click on the photos for larger sizes.


Kelsey with her friend Audrey. Audrey's family spends their weeekends on their boat in the marina. They basically adopted us.

Kelsey, RJ, Austin and Audrey. Great freinds and great times at the beach. What a treat to meet such a great family with kids the same ages.

RJ doing his school work. School started onboard Monday, September 6th (yes, labor day). So far, the kids (and teachers) are doing well.

RJ studying the cell structure of an onion skin. We learned that all living things are made of cells, but that cells can differ between tissues.

Kelsey working on her history in the cockpit.

There are steet performers even in Sausalito. Here, the birdman with his "Bird Calidascope" lets RJ hold "Pearl", his new Makaw.

RJ liked this cool kit car in front of the pizza joint. He was amazed that underneath it was a 1966 slug bug!
