Fort Point

After our jaunt to see the Palace of Fine Arts, I requested that we go to Fort Point, which is under the Golden Gate Bridge.  It was a hike to get there, but MAN was it worth it!! The views were incredible and I've never been UNDER the bridge!  And we were really lucky to have sunny weather too!

Fort Point was built between 1853 and 1861 at the mouth of the bay, to protect the bay from attack.  Its said that the Golden Gate Bridge was built to resemble the arches in Fort Point, if you look underneath the bridge, you can see the resemblance in the architecture.

 The first site of the Golden Gate Bridge is always a bit breathtaking!

Walking along the path around Crissy Field to get there

Stopped for a selfie

Hello beautiful....

First sign and entrance!

The undercarriage of the bridge is built to resemble the arches of Fort Point

You can see the resemblance here.

I mean, look at that sunny sky!!

It was super super windy!!

Beautiful view back of the city!

I could look at this view every day!  I had such a fun jaunt to Fort Point with the B Man.  I had forgotten just how FAR of a trek to the bridge was, but it was well worth the view!
