Pictures of the Day

Hastily snapped a picture in between waves of pedestrians and fellow riders. I pedaled across around the noon hour on a Friday. Not the busiest time to cross the bridge, but still packed. Glad I cycled the Golden Gate Bridge. Now, I can safely bet I’ll never ride it again.

The waterfront trail in San Francisco is awesome. I meandered around the entire city mostly along here. Stopped for a break on a quiet beach.

The waterfront trail can be seen in between the grass and sand. The downtown core is a few kilometres away. San Francisco is a beautiful and vibrant [and often hilly] city worth visiting more than once.

Spontaneously attended a ball game. $5 ticket on SeatGeek. One of the most picturesque stadiums I’ve ever seen. [The Giants won. Meant to be.]
