Exploring San Francisco - Part 2
Our second part included exploring probably the most popular bridge in the world - The Golden Gate bridge. Later on we decided to get a swim in the ocean and explore the golden gate park.
First thing we did in the morning after renting a car is heading right straight for the bridge.
Crossing the bridge for the first time.
Beautiful view on the city from the other side of the channel.
The Golden Gate Bridge is a suspension bridge spanning the Golden Gate, the opening of the San Francisco Bay into the Pacific Ocean.
It is possible to drive down under the bridge but we decided to head on and drive up the hill.
Ford Mustang bears enjoying the view as well.
I wonder how long have they been sitting here?
Personal photo :)
What a great place to enjoy the view.
This hill used to be a military base during the second world war.
Can you find a Ford Mustang car with the bears?
Must have been a great view from that plane.
Pacific ocean float into San Francisco bay.
Golden Gate bridge in San Francisco.
Alcatraz island on the horizon.
Could sit here all day long.
Eagle in a wild. That's interesting.
Decided to drive up as high as possible.
Now we are almost 300m high, more the the hight of the bridge itself.
Nice view :)
Geta team in San Francisco.
Our rental car. Not too comfortable given we were 5 people.
I wonder how old this bench is.
View on the Pacific Ocean.
Hawk hill whatever this is.
Can't get any higher than this. Almost 330m above sea level.
Yeap, I like it here.
Can you really find any place with a better view?
I wonder how old these benches are?
From one side there is a city of San Francisco.
From the other - the Pacific ocean.
Must be careful no to step on some small creatures like this lizard.
One last glance and it's time to move on.
It's a wonderful life.
Time to move on. Let's head for the beach.
Real American style vehicle.
Met some weird guy by the store.
Ready for a swim.
Such a wonderful weather.
The water was pretty cold if I'm honest.
At least for a dog it was cold.
But I decided to stay on the beach.
Not for us.
The next destination was the Golden Gate park.
Can you spot a bird? :)
Also noticed TEsla - the first super car that goes on electricity.
Once you are in the park you can visit the Japanese garden. It costs about 7$ and probably is worth it. It's not too big but the spirit is quite interesting.
A decorative moon bridge in the Tea Garden.
Actually very peaceful place to come and enjoy yourself for a while.
Really steep stairs right behing me. More like a wall stairs for me.
Real pond with lots of fishes. Like in a movie.
The Japanese Tea Garden
Such a beautiful place.
The oldest public Japanese garden in the United States, this complex of many paths, ponds and a teahouse features native Japanese and Chinese plants. The gardens 5 acres contain many sculptures and bridges.
Stone block bridge goes all the way across the pond.
We continue our walk down the park. I've been here before but the feelings are like your the first time here.
Wild life is everywhere. Turtles are enjoying the sun right in the middle of the pond.
I suppose the water is perfectly clean if there is so much life all around us.
I guess it's time to move on.
Later that day we took the most beautiful road in the world and also visited Santa Cruz city but I will tell about it in the next post.
We came back to San Francisco when it was completely dark and of course decided to take another glance at the city at night from the same hills we were in the morning time.
Enjoying the view.
Yeap, this view was definitely worth all the trouble driving here again.
