The Bay Area Christmas adventure… part 1…

a 1

There I am. Can you tell where I am standing?

a 2

Right! Smack dab in the middle of the Golden Gate Bridge.

My daughter, Mollie, the one studying pre-med, looking at the bridge.

I just got back to San Diego, and finished unloading the car. Because I am still posting pictures of our adventure in New York, way back in October, and because, unusually for me, I am doing that one in order, I decided to do all the Bay Area posts and pictures in random non-ordered order.

I love that lens. It is like having a superpower.

This trip was a little weird. I didn’t go down to the dog park and take pictures of dogs, even though I missed my two dogs terribly. I didn’t take any flower pictures. I didn’t go up to the top of the Berkeley hills and take photos of the sun setting behind the Golden Gate.

But we did do a lot of fun stuff, and the Christmas was awesome.

Alcatraz, the famous old island prison.

a 10

A quintessential photo of San Francisco, from the bridge, on a foggy, drizzly day.

A cormorant, taken from the bridge with the big zoom lens.

And Fort Point, an actual Civil War fort nestled under the footing of the bridge. Okay, see you soon, for more Bay Area adventures… and New York adventures… and whatever else happens.
