Travel: San Francisco Bay
Oh, boy -- I have a backlog of trips I need to write about so let's get this out of the way right now.
Last month, a friend decided to celebrate her 30th birthday by inviting her friends onto a boat. Despite it being in the middle of the summer, we were absolutely freezing (and under-dressed) as we circled around San Francisco Bay. We did, however, get to see wonderful sights such as Alcatraz, the Golden Gate Bridge (which we went under 2-3 times), and Sausalito lit up at night. Absolutely beautiful.
This shot in particular was done one of the times went UNDER the San Francisco Golden Gate Bridge, through a window INSIDE the nice, warm cabin. The fog blocking the sun obviously didn't help. The condensation on the window just shows the vastly different temperatures between the outside and inside of the boat. Fun day, overall. If I ever did it again, despite it being summer, I would have worn my thickest winter clothes. Brr. The upside though was when we went to a club later and ate at a crepes place afterward that same evening, it didn't seem so cold compared to the 60 degree temperature above the water.
