Treasure Island Assembly

On a windy day in June, we found a sheltered beach cove on historic Treasure Island that was just perfect for a picnic. Artificially-made Treasure Island was built in 1936-37 for the Golden Gate International Exhibition, and the World's Fair site is a CA Historic Landmark.

Though originally named the Port of Trade Winds, the site where we picnicked was once used by Pan Am flying boats such as the China Clipper and is now referred to as Clipper Cove. 

We had a lovely day of food, laughs (the shirtless man on his boat taking unending selfies), and enjoyed the company of Kelsey's dog, Iggy. We posed in the magic hour golden light with Ginevra's picnic basket, and did our best version of a 1947 Sears Sportswear Catalog photo.

Bonus Fun fact: in '88 the Berlin airport scene was shot on Treasure Island for Indiana Jones and the Last Crusade!
