The Golden Gate Bridge is 35 minutes from my house. Despite its close proximity, our family only tours the City by the Bay about four or five times a year. Yesterday was one of those days.
There is a quote commonly attributed to Mark Twain where he said, “The coldest winter I ever spent was a summer in San Francisco.” In truth, Twain never actually said this, but that doesn’t make the context false. In summer, San Francisco is always foggy and chilly, but during yesterday’s ‘Sunday in the City’, we got lucky with perfect sunny and clear weather.
Take a tour with me of some favorite spots, gorgeous shops, and amazing architecture.
Our first stop was a look at the vista up in the Marin Headlands. This view is the definition of breathtaking. You can see the entire skyline of downtown San Francisco. Sailboats and cargo ships drift in and out under the Golden Gate Bridge, and seagulls soar all around, much to the delight of the children.
