Spent the afternoon hiking and picnicking in the shadow of the Golden Gate Bridge. It was an unusually warm and clear day in Sausalito and we took advantage of what will most likely be the last warm and clear day for a while. The weather forecast called for rain and possibly even some snow along our route over the next 3 days.
We hiked up to Yates Battery and explored the old concrete artillery bunkers that guarded the bay from enemy attacks during WWII. Cool stuff, but everything was welded shut so all we could do was walk around on top of the ramparts and imagine what it would be like to operate those six 3" cannons that once served as the explosive deterrent to the Red scourge of Communisim!
I'm so glad socialism has prevailed.
