Golden Gate Bridge

goldengateI took this picture with my phone’s camera. It’s low res, but I like how it gives the photo a watercolor effect. At least, that’s what I tell myself. I can’t seem to carry a real camera for some reason. I think it’s the bulk and the bother.

We were standing above the Golden Gate in the Marin headlands, looking down. The wind was so bad I had to walk behind my brother so I didn’t get blown off the bluff. At one point, I lifted my foot up and tried to put it down and my whole leg got blown about a foot from where I was trying to plant it.

Afterward Hubby took my brother and me to a swanky restaurant called Poggio in Sausalito. The most notable things about the place were the sardine appetizer and the martini my brother got. That martini was a combustible gas fume. I’m pretty sure because I smelled it. It was a Molotov cocktail waiting for a match and a toss.

    Mmmm. Molitov martinis.

    So would you recommend the place?

    That’s damn good resolution for a cell phone camera. Mine’s for shit.

    Nah, it was expensive and the food wasn’t that good. Maybe I’m being picky but really the best things were the appetizers and the Molotov Martini.

  3. I haven’t seen the bridge since 2004. Nice picture.

    Thanks. The little camera on my phone does a good job.

  5. Geez, I’ve got to get out more often, when I saw your picture of Golden Gate bridge (very nice photo) it reminded me that its been a really long time since I’ve been there. I also remember Sausalito, we went there to have a late lunch, it was a ritzy titzy restaurant and there was a large party seated when we arrived. We, my brother-in-law, my sister, and me were thinking’ maybe we should have picked a less hoity toity eatery, but hell we were already here might as well enjoy. The waiter took out drink order, and promised a prompt return with our drinks at which time he would take of lunch orders. The table across the way was filled with what I would describe as the yacht club type, they were talking and laughing and having a good time, all off a sudden one of the women let out a burp that sounding the a fog horn, I mean the floor to ceiling glass windows rattled in their frames, so much for hoity toity yacht club types, they have their most embarrassing moments too.

    Your picture and post made me want to go to SF so much! I love to visit there. Maybe someday we’ll make it back there! ” I left my heart…..”

    That made me laugh, AZ. I guess the hoity toity can fog horn one out when they need to.

    You should come out sometime. Hubby and I will take you around and show you some sights, Connie. It’s a beautiful place. Usually good weather too.
