So, for a long time I have had a wish to bike across the Golden Gate. In the office, it was like this – the brilliant blue of the bay, the sharp outlines of the skyscrapers in the financial district, red towers, boats, seagulls.
So, I take the Bianchi up Arguello, then through the Presidio and hit the bridge. Swirling fog masks everything -you can barely see the water let alone the city. It is cold. It is like Scotland. Anyway I weave throughout the strollers and stop past one of the towers. “Could you take my photo, please?” – ” Aye nae bother pal” says the man from Glasgow. Whole bunch of people from Scotland!
So, I get to the Marin side and the viewpoint is in beautiful hot sun. Two guys in denim shorts are dancing and washing a car and the bikers helmet says ” Not all who wander are lost.”
I cycle back and have Vietnamese soup on Clement – $6.50
I like the dance and car cleaning. There is a lot of room for development on this theme.
