Golden Gate Bridge

Yes, we are back in the San Francisco area, even though we had a bad experience here only two and a half months ago.

But, we only drove into San Francisco today because I missed the exit at the north end of the Golden Gate Bridge. Did a quick u-turn at the south end and drove back to the Vista Point parking area at the north end.

Then we proceeded to walk the length of the bridge from north to south (8,981 feet!), took a brief rest on a bench, ate an ice cream bar and walked all the way back. Two hours of very pleasant workout.

At the very middle of the longest span, where the suspending cable is lowest, I was able to reach up and touch it. What fun!

Otherwise, we're just hanging out, enjoying a beautiful location, surrounded by vegetation and bird song. Barbecued suppers. Good company.

Finished converting Chapter 3 of my dissertation.

Are you still in San Francisco? We had a lovely time in San Diego earlier this month, and it was hard to face SNOW again!
