Stroll by the Bay

Berkeley Marina: 27 Mar 07

Bay View

This is a happy place.

Sun is setting..

Choppy seas. 
When the sun sets, you can really see the ball move behind the hills.

A long winding road

A long path to walk. Places without crowds are nice.
Beats squeezing with people at the esplanade.


Its windy though. Be warned.

Golden Gate Bridge: Best View

Hawk’s Hill:   We hunted for, and found the best view of the GGB.

Golden Gate Bridge

The best unobstructed view from this angle. Is from this hill =) 

Bridge in the dusk

Anyway, this was a special day.

Moon starting to rise

You can see the Oakland ports too.

Moon rising 

Concidentally, as we were sitting there, the moon started to rise.

Moon Eclipse

Later, we realised that we had a picked a day to visit where there was a rare moon eclipse. I think it happens once every 30 years or so.

Night view of SF

Anyway, this was a good day. =)
