Not exactly an excursion but here on personal business. A transaction if you will. But, do have time to do some fun things in between. And, here we are at the batteries that used to hold canons that protected the bay from invaders. These were built in the 1900′s. I am not sure who we were defending the bay against. Z Germans? Of course, the canons have long been removed.
It wasn’t too long ago when I was taking pics of the Golden Gate. But, the view here is very much a different POV especially with the pending sunset with the sun seemingly refusing to set. And, I can’t help thinking how useless this bunker is in terms of modern day military technology. One drone, and this bunker is gone.
The wind was blowing hard. Very difficult to keep the camera still. And, we were led to believe the sun was setting. So, we rushed from on vista point to the next braving the strong cold ocean breezes.
Should we get closer to the ocean? What if we are too cold and tired to make it back up after we’ve reached the bottom?
Long march back to our car. The sun is STILL setting? We’ve been here for two hours already. We’re cold and starving.
Finally, the sun has set. After the battery, we took dinner in and slept well. The next morning, we visited de Young. We had brunch next to the big safety pin.
Then, we pretended to care about anthropological art.
I was more interested in the paintings especially the bottom picture. Great composition.
We then flew to Japan.
Why is this strange girl in so many of my pictures?
“Who are you calling weird, and when are you going to feed me?”
Hope the breakfast sandwich satiates your appetite.
