The Last of San Francisco

Here it is! My last day in San Francisco. We took the ferry to Sausalito then made our way to the Golden Gate Bridge. This wonder of the modern world is so much bigger than I remembered (spanning 4,200 feet). It opened in 1937 and has had a pretty good run since that time (especially considering how the Bay Bridge faired). Watching the weather roll in from that vantage point is really quite remarkable. Cars whiz by, the wind is out of control, and clouds swoop in to block your view one moment and create the most beautiful backdrop the next.

Next we walked to the Palace of Fine Arts. It’s an old structure, built in 1915 for the Panama-Pacific Exposition. It was originally used to showcase art. During World War II, it was used to store jeeps and trucks. After the war ended, it continued to serve odd purposes. It became a Park Department warehouse, was used as a telephone book distribution center, and was once even a flag and tent storage depot. Now, as you can see in my photos below, it serves as a tourist hot spot (and everyone’s favorite place to take wedding photos).

Our last stop of the night was the Danish bar, Mikkeller. This place is a beer lover’s paradise. The food was fantastic and their design was on point. If I lived in San Francisco, I’d go there all the time! (It is right on the edge of the Tenderloin, so be careful!)
