United States: Golden Gate Bridge, San Francisco


Renowned for its cool summers, chilly fog, steep rolling hills, cable cars they locally call bart, and of course, it’s world famous Golden Gate Bridge, San Francisco has become a coveted tourist destination! And yes, there was truly more to San Francisco than what guide books normally tell us. It just has this homey, comforting and welcoming feeling that attracts and smites all visiting tourists! I can tell because it happened to me! As the cliche goes, “I left my heart in San Francisco”

ooh-lala! perfect cloudless and fogless view of the Golden Gate Bridge!

What a sunset in Golden Gate!

Despite its usual foggy climate, I did not fret because its climate is part of what San Francisco is.  Since it is surrounded on three sides by water, San Francisco’s weather is strongly influenced by the cool currents of the Pacific Ocean, hence the fog! But God was so great, he wanted us to experience the best of San Francisco to be captured in vivid photographs so he gave us clear days to explore and wander around San Francisco!

We started off the day by visiting the ruins of Sutro Baths, the world’s then largest indoor swimming pool complex built in the late 1900s which eventually burned down in 1966.

Just as any San Francisco tourist would do, I guess it was mandatory to pay the Golden Gate Bridge a visit. Although the fog is a regular mainstay during San Francisco summers, luckily our visit in December was fog free hence the magnificent and flawless view of the Golden Gate Bridge basking in the clear and vivid blue sky!

I would not normally attribute the adjective ‘beautiful’ for a bridge, but I guess the Golden Gate Bridge was an exception. It was just irresistible to be trigger happy, hence the many shots of the same bridge, because it was THAT beautiful.

he Golden Gate Bridge is one of the world’s famous suspension bridges that spans the Golden Gate, the opening of the San Francisco Bay into the Pacific Ocean. In the same day, we also happened to cruise through the equally famous Bay Bridge of San Francisco.

One of San Francisco’s equally famous bridges! SF Bay Bridge!
