Well, its been one week since we’ve been back from our month long trip to the US and Canada and, if you’ll forgive me, in the coming posts I’m going to share with you some of our holiday travel snaps. For too long I have lived vicariously through the pictures of others’; now its my turn baby!! Indulgent? Probably; but it will afford me the opportunity to relive a busy, whirlwind escapade which saw the whole family bed down a whole set of lifelong memories. And really, isn’t that what travel is all about?
The photos in this post come from our day where we hired bicycles and rode from San Francisco’s Fishermans Wharf to Sausalito. It was a beautiful, warm day – one none of us will ever forget. We caught the ferry back to our starting point late in the afternoon which we were all quite thankful for – our bums had gotten very saddle-sore. I hopped into a cab shortly after we arrived back to the hotel that evening and abandoned my rather fatigued family in my quest to grab a sunset image of the Golden Gate bridge (above). Unfortunately I missed the sunset rays, but hey, beggars can’t be choosers.
Above: The twisty turns of Lombard Street. My gem of a taxi driver took me here on the way back to the hotel after the Golden Gate bridge sunset shot above. To my absolute horror, I dropped my 10-22 EFS wide angle lens here. It made the most sickening noise as it crashed onto the road. Can you believe it still worked after that? I don’t know what I’ve done, but I’m still thanking my lucky stars that she continued to serve me after that.
