golden gate, alcatraz, sea lions, pacific breeze

An after work wander through Chinatown led to San Francisco Bay and Pier 39.

First glimpse of the Golden Gate Bridge (75 years old this Saturday) and Alcatraz Island. Wondered what all the deep barks were, then realised it was the sea lions! A friend had mentioned these but I'd forgotten exactly where they were. As I stared at the Golden Gate they were behind me, basking and occasionally squabbling on huge wooden pontoons.

Great to see them--and great to spend some time by the sea for a bit. Refreshing breeze. Searing light, though, off the water--glad I brought my shades.
