San Francisco Bay and Golden Gate

    No trip to the San Francisco Bay area would be complete without a drive across the Golden Gate Bridge and stop at the Vista Point on the Marin County side of the bridge.   Not only do you get an incredible view of the bridge, but you see the entire San Francisco skyline. 

     Alcatraz and Angel Island can be see to the east of the bridge, along with all of the sailboats that are dotting the waters everywhere on the bay.   As you gaze through the incoming afternoon fog, you can see the Bay Bridge, that is quickly being obscured by the afternoon fog as it rolls through the Golden Gate and into the bay.

     On of the most beautiful sights along the waterfront of San Francisco is the Palace of Fine Arts on Lombard Street.  The Gold Dome and the magnificent stucco exterior you can see all the way from Sausalito.
