In August, Katie and JM came to visit from Chile and I took them around San Francisco. One of the places we went to was the Muir Woods National Monument. It is probably one of the most beautiful places in the world. Here are some of my pictures from the trip:
This past weekend my dad and I went whale watching off of San Francisco. We went with San Francisco Whale Tours on a six hour long boat ride that went all the way to the Farallon Islands and beyond.
Saturday morning was extremely foggy. And when I say extremely foggy, I mean it. When we were directly beneath the Golden Gate Bridge we could barely see it:
We saw a harbor porpoise and lots of birds and some sea lions on our way out of the Bay. It was still very foggy by the time we got to the Farallon Islands.
On Friday I went up to San Francisco with a few friends (Shane, Matt, and Drew) to go see the new LED light installation that is on the west span of the Bay Bridge. It was kind of a windy and chilly night, but it was worth it to see the bridge. We got a good view from the pier next to the Ferry Building. Here are some of the pictures I took (and a video below).
And here’s a video of the bridge so you can see the lights in action!
