San Francisco Bay for Jake’s theme.

I’ve just finished packing my cases, and when I saw Jake’s theme for this week is ‘BAY’, I couldn’t resist posting a few pics of the gorgeous San Francisco Bay. They were taken in July 1995 on our very first trip to the USA. We started off in LA, motored over to Palm Springs, then to Tombstone Arizona, Grand Canyon, Las Vegas, up the east side of the Sierra Nevada, across Yosemite National Park, and then to San Francisco, where we stayed in the Fisherman’s Wharf area. We loved this beautiful city, even though the ‘summer’ weather was rather chilly, and there was a lot of mist over the bay. This is the best shot we could get of the Golden Gate Bridge, without actually flying over it.


This was looking down at Horse Shoe Bay from the bridge.


Here’s a view of the city from the other side of the Golden Gate bridge.


My favourite pic across the bay, is this one, looking out towards Alcatraz, with the gorgeous sailing ship which happened to appear at just the right moment. 🙂


We’ll soon be leaving for Heathrow airport, and my next post should be from sunny South Africa. 🙂
