Crossing the Bridge

Once we got settled in and got a little taste of some excellent food, we were up and ready to see the bridge!!!!! We headed to the most touristy place, I believe on the planet, Pier 39. There you can sail away in any type of boat you can think of, eat fried food, and see some interesting street artists.  

We hopped on a boat and had a tour around Alcatraz and Golden Gate........Oh my!!!! It was very foggy, really for most of the time we were there. The Golden Gate Bridge was so amazing, the size the color the idea of connecting two places with a man made object.......so amazing!!

Once we floated under the bridge we made our way past Alcatraz. This is a place I have wanted to see since I was a child. Such a strange place. Such a strange idea.

The buildings on the island were are a work of art. A piece of history standing alone making a statement as they fall apart.

Sadly we were unable to dock and have a look, but we were close enough to satisfy my need to see it.

Our stay at the bay brought us to one of my uncles. We were able to meet up to catch a Giants game. We had such a great time catching up. The Giants didn't win, but we were able to eat some very tasty stadium food.....garlic fries are a must!!!!

The birds gather around during the 7th inning to catch the leftovers the fans leave behind....notice the boats in the bay, you can actually ride a ferry to the ballpark. Also, this is where people float around hoping to catch a ball.

Across the Golden Gate docks this nifty ride. Pursuit, if you zoomed in the tablet would inform you that this sail boat was built in 1929 and has had an amazing journey. More info here about her journey http://www.boatingsf.com/boat/pursuit

More adventures across the bridge led us to some interesting places. This is right across the bridge, this is the windiest place on earth (at least in my opinion).

Down from the windiest place on earth is this little charm. This is Point Bonita Lighthouse. I have never seen anything like this! the edge of land, waves slicing into the side of the shore. You can lookout and see for a long way.

We ate, we drank, and we walked more miles then we could keep up with. The food was excellent the atmosphere was freeing. San Fransisco, you do not have my whole heart, but maybe just a piece has been left behind.
