postcard from america
I have lived in the UK for most of my life, but when young I definitely had wanderlust and even ended up living in South Africa for several years which was a wonderful experience. I now look forward to a long and leisurely retirement doing what I like most - gardening, photography, walking and travelling. View all posts by Heyjude

Have you walked across? I’d like to. 🙂 🙂
You would! It’s a long way across so you might prefer to use a bicycle.
Not me! 🙂 🙂
Not a bike person?
NOT! 3 wheeler? 🙂 🙂
I quite like those. As long as it has a ‘boot’ like the one I had as a child.
To bring your plants back from the garden centre xx
Oh, how did you know my guilty secret?
I think that is possibly one of the most well known bridges in the world. Did you see it rising out of the mist?
No mist on my visits PP. I think that occurs in the warmer months (June) and we only ever visited SF in February/March.
We were there September to October
We were there in sept and oct, beautiful weather
We were pretty lucky with the weather too, an odd wet day, but the last visit coincided with a real heatwave!
As much as this looks so grand, I prefer the Forth Rail Bridge. It has an unusual construction, and looks wonderful in certain light.
Best wishes, Pete. x
I’ve stood in that very spot Jude! Maybe we were side by side and didn’t even know it. 🙂
Maybe you were on the same coach tour? How wonderful to know we have both been there. I bet you cycled over the bridge too 😀
We didn’t cycle but that is something on our list! My brother and sister in law live in the Bay area so they guided us there. On our day the clouds obscured some of the bay and the bridge rose and fell out of the mist. Quite magical.
Yes, the bridge through the mist looks so magical. Lucky to have family there, I’d be a regular visitor.
We feel very fortunate and try to visit as often as possible.
And get away from all that snow!! I really hope it has gone now.
All gone here in Calgary where it is 23C today! Lots of snow in the mountains so we will be watching the river in the month ahead.
Oh, lovely! Spring at last 🙂
I’d walk too, very slowly savouring every step because I love bridges!
It’s 1.7 miles long and very noisy with constant traffic. I think it is nicer to look at.
