Cindy and I were joining friends with their boat ( the Ebenezer III ) at  Pier 39 Marina in San Francisco for New Years Eve. It was a quiet and rather mild sail over on Sereno for a December day in No. Cal.729857_4047820635173_1377846802_o5Richard and Anita brought Dungeness crab and a whole feast while we added slow roasted beef burritos and boiled shrimp with cocktail dip to the party. Richard showed off his skill with the wok cooking delicious crab on the dock as more of their friends from the bay area showed up to celebrate with us. 567305_4049015545045_1862744458_o5

Many thanks to Richard and Anita for hosting such a great party and giving Cindy and I the opportunity to meet their wonderful friends.565351_4047818715125_1372017734_n5
