Finally we get the chance to see the beautiful Golden Gate Bridge in San Francisco after talking about it for some time. We went there twice as the first time it was rather late and foggy and so it was not too clear. Then we went on the next day, earlier this time so the view was quite magnificent and breath taking!
If we have one of those steiner binoculars, then we can even see Alcatraz too from the viewing points around the bridge. No, we did not take the ferry ride to Alcatraz as we were in a rush to cover most of San Francisco in a day.
We spent most of the time around Fisherman Wharf and the city so by the time we were done it was almost 8pm and when we returned to the hotel it was almost 9.30pm! That was because we were staying in Santa Clara and the drive took us almost an hour to reach home.
