San Francisco, Open Your Golden Gate

"It only takes a tiny corner of
This great big world to make the place we love;"

Last Saturday was a beautiful day in San Francisco!
We headed over the Golden Gate Bridge, north to the Wine Country.
I thought of the song Judy Garland sings:

"San Francisco, open your golden gate
You let no stranger wait outside your door."

Looking back towards San Francisco, the sun glistening on the water.

Our beautiful City by the Bay.

"Other places only make me love you best,
Tell me you're the heart of all the golden west."

I'm linking up to Susan at A Southern Daydreamer for Outdoor Wednesday.
Be sure to visit and see more outdoor photography.

Also, because I'm so thankful to be living in this beautiful part of the world,
I'm linking up to Wednesday Gratitude over at Heart and Home.
Be sure to visit Heidi and see other thankful posts.

Pin It!

Beautiful shots of the Golden Gate Bridge. We went to San Francisco many years ago and I have always wanted to return. Loved it there.

Beautiful just beautiful

I was in your fair city many years ago. It is a truly lovely place, but it was very cold when there. You shared some great views of the bridge.

I love San Francisco, but it has been years since I have been. Great pictures!

Kat said...

Beautiful shots!!! I have been to San Francisco several times, but it has always been overcast when we have gone. We had a family friend that supervised the painting of the Golden Gate bridge. By the time they finished painting one end, they'd start again at the other.

Oh my what a lovely place! Your pictures are just gorgeous on such a clear day. Thanks so much for sharing!

I have never been to California, but I need to put it on my list. The bridge is so iconic and beautiful.

Hi Delores,
Thanks for linking in to the party!
I love your pics of the Golden Gate, what great shots! You did have a clear day. I took a bunch on our way home on Sunday. I thought I'd post them some other time. What a fantastic view from up there, on the side going south. We'd never stopped on that side before!
I so wanted to stay in the Farmhouse, but as you saw we actually wound up on the coast. Someday, though I'm going to stay there! It looks fantastic. Thanks again for your recommendations.
I love this area, too. We are so lucky. SF is absoluley one of the best cities in the world!
I think it would be fun to meet you halfway, sometime. Maybe at Ikea, what do you think? Just an idea...I am not a stalker....
Have a great week.

I sure do miss THE CITY.

I made the two hour drive every Saturday to take my son into Davies Symphony Hall. He played in the orchestra... I went shopping and lunched with friends

I love looking at your blog as it brings back good memories.

Talk to you soon ;)

...my great uncle travelled from the mountains of north carolina to san francisco to work on builing the golden gate bridge...i never ever see a picture of it without wondering which parts of it were touched by him...

Ms. Bake-it said...

I have not been to San Franisco yet but would like to visit some day. Your pictures are fabulous!

Thank you for the virtual tour!

So beautiful! I used to live in Monterey Bay and we'd take excursions up to San Francisco often. This brought me back for a moment.

How beautiful. Great captures.
I was there last year but no time for sight seeing:).
Thank you for sharing.

Denise said...

What great pictures, I've never been to San Francisco, but I'd like to get there one day :)

Be Colorful Coastal said...

Great pictures. I'm thinking I either need to take my time when I am capturing moments or I need a better camera. My pictures don't look like this. Well done. Love San Fran. Enjoy,
