We're in between storms here in San Francisco, but that's not stopping my from posting about a recent adventure during nicer weather. We finally made the visit to Point Bonita Lighthouse, one of our last remaining stops on the Golden Gate Recreation Areas map.
Almost a year ago I mentioned the lighthouse was closed due to very necessary repairs to the suspension bridge that connects it to the mainland. When it reopened in April, we never seemed to be free on the sunny and clear weekend days, and clouds always rolled in on days we had time to go.
Finally, at the end of October, we picked a clear day and were looking back on this city view after just 15 minutes:
What a difference some sun makes, huh?
Lots of marine life activity that day
The brand new suspension bridge
The view North towards Mount Tam
The view South: the Cliff House and Ocean Beach
Point Bonita in the background and military lookouts on top the cliff
Beautiful day for a hike, and worth the wait!
