Leaving the Golden Gate Behind

GoldenGate0024

Crossing the Golden Gate Bridge with some feelings of sadness as we so enjoyed the Northern California coast.

More views of the bridge. This time from the southern end. Just can’t stop taking photos of it.

Nice that the flowers match the bridge color, eh?

Last one, I promise…time to move on.

We turned right immediately after crossing the bridge to explore Lands End, the ruins of the Sutro Baths, and the Cliff House. Some fascinating history in this area, if you care to follow the links.

On March 14, 1896, the Sutro Baths were opened to the public as the world’s largest indoor swimming pool establishment.

This little fellow seemed to be posing for me.

Heading a bit further south along the coast, our next overnight was a beach-side boondock in Pacifica. We rather liked the area of this town that was right around the public fishing pier. It was a bit rundown, but the people were very friendly. The next day we did our laundry and I found a hair salon that was able to take care of my unruly hair, which I was very grateful for. Thank you Amanda!

Gotta love what rust can do, especially with some carefully applied seagull guano.

Half Moon Bay State Park where we walked the beach and rode a beautiful bike trail along the bluffs.
