SanFrancisco May 2018

I wanted to take a photo of San Francisco early in the morning from Treasure Island. I had never been to San Francisco. I needed to scout the location the day before, so after picking up the rental car; I followed Google Maps directions to Treasure Island. The voice directions weren't working, so as I was driving on the Oakland Bay bridge I had to keep looking at my phone. The turn came up too fast; I was in the wrong lane and the exit speed was 15 mph. I missed it. It took me an hour to get turned around and get to the Island. When I arrived, the road along the shore overlooking San Francisco was closed. I left and went to my hotel, and kept thining about getting the photo. I decided the next morning that I would find a place to park my car, carry my gear and walk along the side of the road.  At 5 AM, I walked a mile, climbed over a guard rail, and walked in the grass to a point on a cliff overlooking the city. It was beautiful! When I think of San Francisco, I will always remember this morning.
