In the hopes of encouraging ATB to post a few more, I'm starting this thread to display some of our(?) shots from the September 10th evening cruise in San Francisco Bay on the USS Potomac - former Presidential yacht of FDR. These are both a mix of the ship itself and the lovely evening views of late summer on San Francisco Bay. All of mine that I'll share are here on my flickr site. USS Potomac on flickr So here goes a few of mine.

Our ship comes in.

I second that notion, I was really hoping to see a dedicated USS Potomac thread, and this one doesn't disappoint!

Sorry to be so late to the party, but wow! Those are some really fantastic shots. I really like the different angles you found and seeing some more of the history of the Potomac and FDR.

Okay here goes, thanks Black Cloud for posting and great shots of the ships interior.

Most of what I took that day are views from the ship, so here are my favorites.
