Pearls By The Bay – Kojima Pearl
We started the day with bright sunshine in the quaint harbor village of Sausalito!
The mannequin ambassadors welcomed our guests with chic elegance and flowers in their hair.
The Casa Madrona Hotel and Spa was abuzz with the reunions of pearl friends from near and far.
We had an entire wall of unique pearl jewelry, loose pearls, strands and pearl pairs to choose from and there was no fighting :).
Lunch, catered by Poggio’s was fantastic!
And then the much anticipated: PEARL BINGO FOR PRIZES !
After everyone had a chance to recharge, we all met at the dock to embark on The Freda B, a 100+ year old schooner that has been restored in the world famous boat yard of Sausalito.
We couldn’t have asked for better weather. The golden hour upon us as we “set sail” past Tiburon, Angel Island, and towards the majestic Golden Gate bridge.
A flock of pelicans graced us with their flight formation. The ship’s crew served us sparkling wine and snacks, and Booz distributed a small pearl to everyone to participate in a collective offering of a gift back to the Sea. Desert was compliments of The Dassler’s : known for their annual care packages of chocolate dipped pretzels.
Nobody wanted it to end! When we got back to the dock, many hugs went all around. Til next year!
