Marin Headlands, San Francisco, CA

9:00 A.M. My uncle lives near Twin Peaks, two elevated hills near the geographic center of San Francisco City, so I was able to wake up to this lovely view of the city.

10:00 AM  I attended Sunday mass.

11:15 AM We ate brunch at Pesce, an italian restaurant at Castro Street.

Around 12 NN After eating our meal, we headed to Marin Headlands. It is a hilly peninsula found across of the Golden Gate Bridge.  The last time that I was in San Francisco, which was last summer, we were also able to visit the Marin Headlands but it was very foggy that time so we weren’t able to see the Golden Gate Bridge. Luckily, the sky was very clear during my recent visit to the city. The view that I saw is like one of the scenes that I see in various San Francisco postcards. My eyes really enjoyed the lovely view of the Golden Gate Bridge from the Marin Headlands.  In my opinion, the Marin Headlands is the “birds eye view of the Golden Gate Bridge.”

Around 1 PM We walked the trail up to the Point Bonita Lighthouse, a historic landmark in the Marin Headlands. As you can see in the photos, the sky was so clear. The fine weather made the short hike to the lighthouse one of the best I had. The hike will give you a little exercise and an amazing view of the Golden gate bridge all along the way. In order to reach the last manned lighthouse in the California Coast,  you will need to pass a short tunnel and a rebuilt suspension bridge.  It is definitely one of the highlights of my San Francisco trip!

  1. Wow! Gorgeous pics! I’ve only been to SF a couple of times. This makes me want to explore the outskirts for different views I haven’t seen yet. Thanks and Happy New Year!
