That’s what it took to build the Golden Gate Bridge.  Recently I ran across the bridge and was quite impressed even by the scale and craftsmanship of the plaque at the base of one of the towers.

We started our 7 mile run from Crissy Field, which has it’s own great history.  Crossing the bridge is just over a mile one-way and may be difficult those sensitive to heights.

One of truly a great view and I am happy to be so close to San Francisco to take advantage of this wonderful bit of history.

Chinese New Year Flower Fair

It’s the year of the rabbit and we came to see the flowers.  At San Francisco’s Chinatown, we were in search of Dim Sum and a little street life.  After walking several blocks past the touristy Chinese novelty shops, the crowd thickened and the skies let out a light drizzle – perfect!  I was in search of my very own lucky bamboo, but had a better time sauntering along the street taking in the great sights and sounds.  Plenty of vibrance and color, easy to be inspired.  A visit to Chinatown made for a great day.
