“San Francisco, open your Golden Gate”

Published by


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.

  1. I think that is possibly one of the most well known bridges in the world. Did you see it rising out of the mist?

    1. No mist on my visits PP. I think that occurs in the warmer months (June) and we only ever visited SF in February/March.

        1. We were pretty lucky with the weather too, an odd wet day, but the last visit coincided with a real heatwave!

    1. 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 😀

      1. 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.

        1. Yes, the bridge through the mist looks so magical. Lucky to have family there, I’d be a regular visitor.

        2. 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.
