Golden Moments






I took the first two photos of the Golden Gate Bridge on a sunny morning from the Visitor's Center located on the south side of the span. The next three photos were taken on a different day. That is my oldest grandson running on the beach toward the bridge in the third shot and my granddaughter jumping in the air with the bridge behind her in the next one. In the last photo, you can see the excited face of my grandson in the mirror behind me as we were approaching the bridge. He was sitting in the back seat of our rental car with my granddaughter and the car we rented was a convertible. It was a little cold and windy that day, but we put the top down just for our ride across the bridge. The kids loved it! Today I am linking my post to Thankful Thursday, because I am so thankful that I am able to take wonderful trips like this with my grandkids.

The golden gate bridge is such a beautiful structure and so very recognizable. What a great idea to rent a convertible for this ride. Many years ago I rented a convertible to drive from Miami to Key West. What great fun that was.

You've got to be the greatest grandmother ever. Kudos to you. I don't think I could do such a thing! My patience is almost non-existent to be sure.

That Golden Gate is iconic and I just saw a shot almost identical to your first one on a TV show. So beautiful!

Best wishes to you!

Great shots all around! I'm finding myself humming "I left my heart..." after these views. So nice that your grandkids are getting to see the sights at another end of the country.
