san fran


it was bucket list time last week
we did a little emptying of the bucket when we
went to san francisco

my two sons live there so we have reasons to
go visit there frequently
we try to see different things each time we go and
of course go eat at different restaurants each time

one of the bucket list items was to walk to and across
the golden gate bridge
my younger son my wife she and i walked from our
older sons apartment to the bridge across the bridge
and then back
it was a 8 mile hike
but it didnt feel like 8 miles
i guess because it was in the 60s and windy
real windy up on the bridge

we walked all the way across the bridge and
touched the other side and then walked back
there were great views of the down town

the big building in the middle is where my smiley
daughter in law works
we call it her building

this was one of those things you have to do
most of the walkers had that touristy look
dont think many locals were on the bridge that day

wonder how they built that thang
and how do they keep it painted
wouldnt want to be the one that painted it

many of the walkers were european
the same that we noticed at the grand canyon this summer
they seem to have awe and respect for our important

overall it felt good to walk across that bridge
windy cold but the views were well worth the effort

then we ate a lot of food there
the food is always good
sorry but the best food we ate was when my wife she
made her home made chicken and dumplings with home made
corn bread for our two sons
shes the chef of the week

yes we love san francisco
we will go back and will remove other items from the bucket list 
next time
