This time around we knew to catch the bus across the bridge and get off on the Marin side. What we did not know, however, was that we needed to swipe our Clipper cards out when we got off the bus (it's not usually required) and we were all charged the full price for the bus that continues all the way to Santa Rosa! Oops. I guess we learned something new for the next time we cross the bridge!
After spending a little time at the lookout we made our way across the mighty span. We were lucky to have absolutely perfect weather. Sunny without being too sunny, a slight breeze to keep us cool, and a bright blue sky filled with puffy white clouds. Perfect.
Here's a look at our walk across the Golden Gate Bridge. Prepare for a lot of "International Orange"!
This time around Ava was not scared of being on the bridge. Last time she was quite freaked out by the cars zooming past so close. The cold, windy weather didn't do much to put her at ease either. She was a little nervous in the lead up to the walk this time but once we started she realised it wasn't so scary after all. In the end both Ava and Lola really enjoyed walking across the bridge and taking in all of the views. Mathilde slept in her wrap for most of the walk. Lazy baby!
I love having such a monumental landmark in such close proximity to where we live. We'll have to make sure it's not another three years before we talk a walk across it again!
