#113 – Golden Gate Bridge, Take I

Before
Every once in a while you know you are going to have a great time. This was one of those times. Dan and Liliana in town, how can it not a great. So I cleaned the car of about half of its mess, filled up the tank, got a dog-sitter to take Lizzy out and… waitedGG Bridge

 

Work for my dinner
Friday, work week is over, and I’m in the car. Driving into San Francisco on a Friday night was not supposed to be a nightmare. Yet it was. Over 90 minutes crawling through miserable 45 miles. Yet that wasn’t enough. “No dinner just yet” saidGG Bridge Dan. Shocked that I haven’t yet seen, let alone crossed the Golden Gate Bridge, and committed to show Liliana as many SFO-Must-See attractions as possible before the first day in the city is over, Dan insisted on seeing before sitting. I obliged. And, without consulting a map [at first], we just drove in the right direction. The fog intensified, visibility was poor, and before we knew it, we were on the bridge without really seeing it. Driving isn’t easy, yet the effort pays of.

I Had No ClueGG Bridge
It is impressive. Can’t deny. If I’d known it is that impressive, I would have come here earlier. Drive across this amazing construction, water below, the fog so thick that at times it feels as if we drive on air. Drive across, get out of the car at the view point, feel as if Winter took hold in July, and look at the Golden Gate Bridge.

Dinner could not compare with this view.

Need to go back, and this time walk across. I’m told this is the real deal. However, maybe I should fix my cameras first???
