THE BAY

In this issue, we pay long-overdue homage to the essential body of water that defines our region — the San Francisco Bay. Not to get as sentimental as Steve Perry crooning “Lights” (originally written about LA), but the Bay’s like family to us. Go island hopping with Michelle Konstantinovsky and meet some of the “Bay Bosses” helping to govern the waterfront with Bob Cooper. Don’t miss Anh-Minh Le’s profile of Wendy Schmidt, eco-philanthropist, Gary Kamiya’s exploration of how the Bay shapes our regional identity, and Catherine Bigelow’s survey of the local yacht club scene. Above, aerial photographer Steve Proehl unveils the many moods of the Bay from on high.
