The Bay Bridge is cooler than the Golden Gate in my opinion. It was constructed in the 1930s and is almost 30,000 feet long (yes, almost 5 mi!) It also has 2 stories-- each story has 4 lanes for cars.
This past weekend, my father and I headed to San Francisco to check out some colleges and enjoy the West coast. It was my first official trip with my Dad only and it was a great experience. We caught San Fran at a perfect time when the weather is absolutely gorgeous (an Indian Summer, as some call it) and my body agreed positively to the 2 hour time difference. So now I'll take you on a journey through my own journey this past weekend and all the activities we engaged in!
I have to say I absolutely love Fall. I think it is a beautiful season and the crisp weather is invigorating to the soul. I love driving down my street and seeing the leaves glowing with red and yellow hues. Life has been pretty busy as usual, but I have been trying to incorporate some relax time into my days. I think it is really important to get outside, breathe in some fresh air, and just be present. Sometimes I feel best when I am sharing this with others, but some days I feel most productive and refreshed when I go on an outing all alone. I think it is really important for us to cultivate the ability to enjoy life on our own that way when we spend it with others we can enhance the atmosphere. There is a huge difference between being alone and feeling lonely: Sometimes we feel lonely when we are in a room full of people. Getting rid of this loneliness can all be boiled down to what we bring to our environment and our outlook on life...
