Happy Places - San Francisco

I am blessed to have the chance to visit San Francisco many many times

One of my favorite cities in the world

and I am so blessed to have the opportunity to captured the Golden Gate Bridge from various corner

this time is from Marin Headlands, a hilly peninsula at the southernmost end of Marin County, California. North of San Francisco across the Golden Gate Bridge.

{September 2013}


Stunning views of the Golden Gate Bridge 


I also realized that how lucky I was, every picture of the Golden Gate Bridge before this time were clear blue sky, I finally got one with its "true color". 

FYI - Golden Gate Bridge is often shrouded in fog





Point Bonita Lighthouse


I love lighthouses, do you?


it was a lovely hike with friends, so quite, peaceful and calm up there


and it feels so good to stop by Sausalito for a little sweet bite in the afternoon too!





Ahhh.......

Life is good!

GLAD I got to see San Fran though your eyes! The only time I was there (for a meeting of my dh's, I got food poisoning at Bubba Gumps the day we got there and spent the rest of the time in bed in the hotel! I never ever got to see the bridge in person! Maybe one day I will go back...maybe! LOVELY photos!
