Click for San Francisco, California Forecast

San Francisco, USA

 

City By The Bay

After roaming on the road for 15 hours and reached four different states, we were at the end of our journey. The bus came out of the tunnel, riding high on the bridge deck overlooking the blue water below. The skyline of San Francisco has emerged in front of us. People brought out their cameras to snap pictures. I was excited to show off famous landmarks to the international tourists on board, "this is the famous prison island Alcatraz, that is the ferry building, ..." The silhouette of Golden Gate Bridge was in the background, wearing a sheer layer of fog at the time. The weather was perfect. Above of us was blue sky and below was glittering sea. Seeing the high rises on the shore has brought out a sense of excitement in us.

What a glorious approach to the city from the Bay Bridge. It suddenly occurred to me that I might have already made this trip a hundred times. Yet the inspiration has never diminished. It was such a wonder to come to the city by the bay.
