Join us for a fun weekend. We will start with an early departure to drive the back roads to Danville CA, the location of the famous Blackhawk Museum. Our cars will be parked in the plaza for display in front of the museum. We will have lunch by the museum. After lunch a private tour of the car collection. After the tour we will drive to the famous Jack London Square in Oakland. We have arranged rooms at the boutique hotel, a Joie de Vivre Hotel Waterfront. There are several shops and restaurants near by for dinner. The following afternoon you can walk to board the former Presidential Yacht Potomac for a two hour cruise of San Francisco Bay accompanied by a live blues band. We will return in time for cocktails. I recommend staying Sunday night for a leisurely drive home on Monday. There is ferry service close to the hotel to San Francisco if you desire to dine in the city Sunday evening. 

The USS Potomac was built in 1934 as the Coast Guard cutter Electra. The 165-foot vessel, displacing
416 tons with cruising speeds of 10 to 13 knots, was commissioned as a U.S. Navy vessel in 1936,
renamed the USS Potomac, and served as Franklin Delano Roosevelt’s Presidential Yacht until his
death in 1945.

After FDR’s death in April 1945, the Potomac began a long and ignominious decline from her former
role in world affairs. After many adventures and many owners – including Elvis Presley at one point –
she was seized in 1980 in San Francisco as a front for drug smugglers - impounded at Treasure Island,
she sank. The ship was raised and unceremoniously dumped on the East Bay Estuary where she sat
abandoned and rotting. A week away from being sold as scrap the ship was rescued by the Port of
Oakland and the process of restoration was begun.

Space for this trip is limited, so an early response is required.
