Richardson Bay has a long history of being a gathering place for the eclectic, creative and wealthy but most recently has gained notoriety for its local governments attempts to remove all liveaboards that they have nicknamed the "anchor outs" who have enjoyed living in rent-free boat homes in the Bay Area. Their boats, anchored just north of the Golden Gate Bridge, float illegally in the sightline of one of the country’s wealthiest zip codes. But now, as enforcement ramps up, their way of life could be coming to an end. Although our time in Richardson Bay was short, we had the opportunity to meet with some of the anchor outs who were the kindest people just trying to survive. This issue is multifaceted so we recommend you check out some of the documentaries on issue!

We also had the opportunity to get a birds eye view of the bay, flying with Seaplane and Aero Adventures thanks to my pal Ashley, in between chores of course 😉
