I was so excited when I got to see The Blue Angels perform at Andrews Air Force Base.  That would be the highlight for me.

That's a very lively venue for San Francisco's Fleet Week, Lottie!  I haven't attended the event in San Francisco.  However, I did attend Fleet Week in Seattle a number of years ago.  And, then boarded the U.S. Aircraft Carrier, Kittyhawk, and cruised 4 days to San Diego with my son, who was stationed aboard!

Hi Wayne Martin and George Souto - we'll watch the air show Sunday afternoon from a nearby rooftop deck while a colleague holds an open house for my new listing--I feel a bit like a kid playing hookey!

Gita Bantwal and Grant Schneider - Fleet Week is big here in San Francisco. It will be fun.

Hello Paul S. Henderson, REALTOR®, Broker, Tacoma Washington - one year I had the chance to watch the parade of ships -- they come in under the Golden Gate Bridge and promanade past Chrissy Field and Aquatic Park. Quite impressive.

The roar of the Blue Angels gets the blood roiling, Chris Ann Cleland - it was hard working this afternoon with them practicing outside my window!

I watched some of their practice today, Laura Allen, Lake Tahoe - Truckee Real Estate for Sale www.TahoeLauraLuxuryHomes.com - and will watch one show on Sunday afternoon.
