Okay, there is no way to stroll anywhere in SF, it's got streets that run miles toward the ocean and you feel like you'll never get there! If you stroll you may be hit by:
A: a trolley
B: a street car
C: a wired bus thingy
D: tour motorized cart thingys that look so unsafe
E: all of the above.
We drove on a street with no left turns for miles and I started to feel claustrophobic. Trapped. Like I could not find my way out of the city and we just wanted to go see the Golden Gate Bridge for pete's sake.
So we saw the Bridge at one point. Then we detoured and dipped our toes at Ocean Beach, Seal Rock.
2 hours later we navigated in and out of 19th Street so many times, I think the city uses the same street name all over town to make you go crazy and feel more trapped and lost.
Finally, the big red guy.
This shot gave me vertigo.
The rivets, simply....riveting.
The kids were whining they were afraid of heights. Me, just afraid of falling to my death at heights like that. "When can we turn around?" "You know the farther we walk the farther we have to go back." Ooh reciprocal property! See we're doing math, it's like homeschool. Plus you're looking at an Engineering marvel, look how excited dad is!
Ah, the city. So beautiful outside the fog. But, man, my head is still spinning from those heights.
