A Sunset Cruise of the Long Beach Harbor

On Thursday August 20th we were able to take a wonderful cruise of the Long Beach Harbor. 
 It was a perfect summer evening to sail.

 Our ship "The Christopher" was waiting for our group.

 She had invited 100 lucky residents in our neighborhood on a 1 1/2 hour long cruise. Mike and I were thrilled to be among the ones chosen for this 2nd annual city sponsored tour.

Port Commissioner Rich Dines gave a wonderful narrative tour of the harbor answering many questions about the importance of the port of Long Beach.

"The Port of Long Beach is one of the world’s premier seaports, a primary gateway for trans-Pacific trade and a trailblazer in innovative goods movement, safety and environmental stewardship. With 140 shipping lines connecting Long Beach to 217 seaports worldwide, the Port handles trade valued at $155 billion each year and supports hundreds of thousands of jobs in Southern California."

 What a wonderful tour of the harbor on a warm August evening. A special thank you to our 5th district Councilwoman Stacy Mungo.
