A Company Offsite at Angel Island

This week my company had it’s offsite, and we went to Angel Island out in San Francisco Bay. We took the ferry over, spent the day playing on a gorgeous green lawn, and had a ton of fun. I’ve only been working there a month, and it was so wonderful to spend some time getting to know people out of the office.

We headed out past Alcatraz:


And we kept on going past the Golden Gate Bridge:

Until we came into this little cove with a pretty harbor and house:

We brought lunch, beer, wine, and lots of games to play. If you ask me, this is the perfect way to make the most of a trip of a lifetime. Nothing beats being able to lounge around with some of your nearest and dearest whilst drinking an alcoholic beverage of your choice. It’s a good job that we are all of legal age because we may have needed to find a fast fake id service that would allow us to have identification proving that we were. Lots of teenagers are doing it these days apparently, but we had none of this worry. All we were worried about was making sure that we had all the alcohol we would need for this trip. Of course, once the kegs were tapped (yes, kegS, we brought 3 with us!) and the football was out, the boys invented a game of their own. It was called “Football Beer Pong,” and it consisted of each person defending their own pair of picnic tables. If the ball hit the person’s pair of tables, that person had to drink. They literally played this for about four hours:

After a few hours, we took the last ferry out and headed back into San Francisco:

I love being out on the water and seeing the great views of the City. It was the perfect offsite and I’m so glad that I found a really great new job!
