I think the color is actually international orange ) rise through the fog and, just a
short distance later, San Francisco gleamed in sunlight, in whites and pastels, in front
of me. It was such a thrill and the bridge always gives me a thrill as it has every single
time in the last 35 years. Sh is beautiful. One must always have a camera on hand
because, if not, you're sure to miss an extraordinary picture. Some days, this regal
bridge will be in complete sunlight, others, she is shrouded in fog. Sometimes, she is
eerily wrapped halfway in fog, half in sunlight. It's always a surprise as to what you
are going to see.
I have loved doing three cruises either to and from San Francisco and sailing beneath
the bridge. I feel such a sense of nostalgia and pride as this beautiful sight either bids
me farewell or welcomes me home.
HAPPY 75TH BIRTHDAY, GOLDEN GATE!!!!
For this grand occasion, I'm including two famous songs about the city that is
home to the Golden Gate Bridge - "On a San Francisco High" which is sung by
the lovely Sony Holland and written by her husband, Jerry Holland ( who
accompanies her on the guitar ).
Of course, everyone knows, "I Left My Heart in San Francisco" sung by the
master, Tony Bennett.
I have always loved this picture of my youngest son, Alex and Jeremy,
who are now 29 and 27, with a foggy bridge in the background
