GOLDEN GATE BRIDGE

After camping at Pi Pi campgrounds in Eldorado Forest, we drove through Sutter Creek, had lunch, and we wanted to take the tour of the Sutter Creek Gold Mine, but it was all booked up with school kids for the day, so we skipped that.

The next day we went through San Francisco so we could walk across the Golden Gate Bridge.

I couldn't resist taking the picture of this building down under the bridge.  I wonder what it was?  It doesn't look like it is being used now.
 Had to get my picture taken on the bridge to prove that I really walked across it!
DH also walked across it!

What an amazing structure!  And the view from it is amazing too!

When I visited Love last month, she gave me the little flag shown in the picture below.  I hung it in the camper above the Texas stitchery I received from Liri last year.  Aren't bloggers great?

By the way, for you Texas friends, the temperature at night is usually in the 40s and during the day for the last several, has been a high of 60!  It's a good thing we brought several quilts to keep warm at night. Hee Hee!

We visited SF about a year ago. I really enjoyed the city, also a trip out to hike around Muir Woods.

Enjoyed your pictures, we are close, we should probably give that bridge a try sometime. Not that close but close enough....because when we leave this part of the country that will be it....TExas bound we are....

Love your wall hanging.

I think I might have chickened out on walking across the bridge. Looks like the view was worth it.

What beautiful pictures...again! I didn't realize you could walk across the Golden Gate bridge...but it seems they've added a nice sidewalk/walkway, so I guess it is permitted. What an experience!

Oh! Sutter Creek is my favorite place! I lived at the top of Sutter Hill for a few years. I even worked some for the manager of the gold mine. Too bsd you weren't able to go inside. Hope you had a nice time there and in San Fran closer to where I live now. Can't wait to see where you went next!
