Postcard #3

San Francisco at dusk from the pier at Fort Mason

Spent most of the day riding San Francisco cable cars, walking through Chinatown, Union Square and down and up Lombard Street. But the best part of the day was spent at the end of the pier near Ghirardelli Square watching a spectacular sunset behind the Golden Gate Bridge. Good bye San Francisco...three days was not enough but we must move on down the coast toward Los Angeles.

  1. What a beautiful view, Ruth!

    By the way, we went birdwatching on my birthday this past Saturday. Was going to do a myworld post but the Internet went down, so I'm saving it for next week. We saw a goshawk, abyssinian roller, red-billed hornbills and a few others that I have still to identify! I always think of you when I see the birds in the Zinder bush!

    Warm greetings from Africa,

  3. Very cool picture. What I find different is the picture's color is mostly brown(tan). The fence, the boat, the background...it's something you don't see often. But it picks up the hue of red in the sky. Interesting. You are having a fantastic trip by the sounds of it.

  10. Thanks for the comments. I hope to be back reading other blogs next week. The sun is lower in the sky as it is late October and the lighting for pictures, especially in the evenings, is fantastic. It adds a golden glow to everything.
