March 12 of 12  

It was a fun-filled Saturday for this month's twelve. I had to go over to the Berkeley Marina to make sure nothing happened with the boat during the tsunami surges the Bay Area got due to the earthquake in Japan.  All was good and I was able to take a quick walk along the shorline to get some shots. Then I headed out to Pittsburg for my little cousin's second birthday party. 

So let's call this month "Boats & Babies"

View from our slip.  While the boat was fine, things had adjusted a bit due to the rapid current.  Was a beautiful day for sailing though - good wind and lots of sunshine.

While checking out the dock lines to make sure everything was secure I noticed that the new pier pilings were already showing signs of corrosion. I like the texture...you probably need to click on the picture to see it larger in Flickr to get a better look at it.

View from the Berkeley Yacht Club.  You can see the Berkeley Pier with the Oakland cranes and the San Francisco skyline in the distance.  I loved the way the sky and clouds came out

Two for One cheating shot!  Cool statue at the marina.  This guy is shooting his arrow straight down the pier towards the Golden Gate.  Loved the texture on both shots, so I couldn't decide which one to post...you get both!

Taking I-80 eastbound towards Pittsburg. I love the east bay hills at this time of year - so green and lush.  It was so bright and pretty. 

Emma at the birthday party. It was a Mickey Mouse theme and Emma loves a good theme.

My sister with Emma. She hasn't gotten the hang of catching the ball yet, but she can grab and drop it like a pro!

Caila the birthday girl. She's showing off her new purse.

My aunt and cousin with the birthday girl.

This kid is the cutest. By the way, she said she didn't want cake and then took my plate, which you see here.  Good thing she's so cute.

Costume change!  Time for the Tinker Bell portion of the party.

I had to throw this one in.  After a day of partying, dancing, running, playing and not to mention the inevitable sugar crash, here's evidence of the major meltdown.

Fun times - how was your March?

What a beautiful day. I love the water shots and the green, green hills. So lush. Little kid birthday parties are such fun. I really like the end of day shot....too cute, although I bet no one thought it was cute at the time. See you next month.

Haha, there were more photos than that - the others were Caila on her back kicking her feet with big crocodile tears. I liked this shot of her crumpled up. You have to imagine the shrieking going on while in that position though. :-p
