Crossing Over to Sausalito

Golden Gate Bridge, San Francisco, California
Discovering Sausalito was a surprise for me. I never thought that this small town to be so beautiful. When we arrived in town, after crossing the Golden Gate Bridge from San Francisco, we immediately thought that Sausalito is like a Mediterranean village. We saw houses on the mountains overlooking the vast expanse of San Francisco Bay, the Main Street has shops and restaurants and some parks and a Marina just perfect for a stroll. The town felt like the villages along the Italian Coast or the French Riviera in the Mediterranean. 
  Crossing the Golden Gate Bridge was quite an experience for me as we drove along the entire length of the bridge, viewing  the towers all the way up each way, the massive vehicles driving each way and then there were people on  each side that walked, jogged or rode their bicycles. I tried my best to capture our crossing in my camera here.  After we crossed the Golden Gate Bridge, on the other side was another View Point to see the beautiful view of San Francisco Bay, Alcatraz Prison, The Bay Bridge and Downtown San Francisco. It was a breathtaking view!

 I felt a childlike excitement upon crossing the Golden Gate Bridge by car.

When we were on the Fort Point on the other side, there were fellow visitors who asked us for the direction towards the path to walk along the Golden Gate Bridge. There were many people crossing the Bridge by car, by bicycle or just walking.

The Mediterranean Style town of Sausalito. The beautiful houses in the mountain overlooking the San Francisco Bay. The Main Street has shops and many restaurants. Sausalito is a very quaint town to visit on a weekend. It is also a very nice town to live in as it is just a driving distance to Downtown San Francisco plus a magnificent view!

We passed by this colourful Mexican Cantina in Sausalito.

 The breathtaking view of  Downtown San Francisco, the Bay Bridge and Alcatraz Prison. We had lunch in a restaurant overlooking this view.  We had seafood pasta and pizza. There is a ferry crossing San Francisco Bay between downtown San Francisco and Sausalito.

I wish you all a wonderful week ahead!
