Scenes of the City: Opening Day of Boating Season

Three ladies wave to the judges in the opening day of boating season parade.

Aboard the California Hornblower, onlookers enjoy the festivities and beautiful weather.

With downtown SF in the background, a catamaran makes its way through the bay.

For this week's Scenes of the City, we tagged along on the California Hornblower for a day out on the Bay watching the Opening of the Boating Season parade and enjoying the beautiful weather.

The "Giants tug", as some dubbed it, scooted through the parade.

Every year the parade starts the same way with the SFFD displaying it's water canons.

With the theme "Giants of the Bay" the combo of a whale and the SF Giants cap was a nice touch.

Aboard the California Hornblower the day was a full on celebration.
