As there is a 3 hour difference from the east to west coast it was rather easy to make the sunrise at Vista View of the Golden Gate Bridge. I was definitely not the only photographer there.
We continued our way to the Point Bonita Lighthouse (foggy area below). However, the walking through tunnel to get there was closed until the afternoon. Unfortunately, we were not able to make it back. However, we did enjoy listening to the waves crash on the rocks below and the pretty view.
The lighthouse is behind that giant rock, but loving the warm golden light.
As we were leaving (in the car), we decided to make a roundabout for some reason into a parking lot where we met a Coyote. I have a feeling people would feed him as he was not shy from us (or our car - which we stayed in). Joe didn't even want me to roll the window down (too bad - it had to happen).
Next stop was Sausalito. It was a beautiful day walking amongst the sailboats and quaint little town to adventure, eat and shop of course.
Next stop was the Bay Model. The U.S. Army Corps of Engineers Bay Model is a working hydraulic scale model of the San Francisco Bay and Sacramento-San Joaquin River Delta System. We spent about an hour or so there listening to the audio where it walked you around to different stops. The center is approximately 2 football fields. Quite a large model. It wasn't really my thing, but it was still interesting to learn about how it operates and what it was used for. You'll have to use the google machine on that one. (:
During our honeymoon we had one picture in front of the Golden Gate Bridge, because our camera died right when we got there. This time we made sure we had a fully charged camera and took ample pictures. We even walked about halfway across the bridge.
Cute little guy.
Joe was so proud of his little rainbow.
From here we will say farewell San Fran. It was nice seein' ya again.
