Golden Gate Bridge

Last October I was in San Francisco for ten days.  While there, we rented bicycles and took a bike ride across the Golden Gate Bridge to Sausalito, returning by ferry.

I paused along the way to take some pictures -- surprise!!! -- but I haven't been able to find a good time to post this reflection.  So, today, here it is.

To see other photos of reflections, please visit James' blog, Weekend Reflections.

What fun, Jack! Love the reflection and also love the idea of biking there. When in the Bay are I always try to find time to walk across the bridge. Years ago DH and I met Sally (?) a former mayor of Sausalito in a bar as she strutted around with her parrot on her shoulder. Seems this colorful woman was a former madame. Also, have you read or heard of the wild parrots? Love the story and the documentary.

Such a wonderful way to see the Golden Gate Bridge, I gather they had a bike lane. I only remember it with heavy traffic. Great photo!
