A sunny and breezy Saturday afternoon is perfect for a stroll along the waterfront of San Francisco and watching the America’s Cup, the oldest racing sports (sailing yachts) in the world.

Just my luck - the American yacht - Team Oracle - sailed in front of my very eyes as they returned to their home base!

Love these America cup miniatures - they actually grew in size from the original one in 1851 as the results of each race were inscribed on the Cup.

    1. Thank you so much Stefania! I was amazed by the technology of the yacht – they are truly the most expensive and most engineered sports! Have a wonderful week, too – cu mult drag, Simple Cherishes.
