California Dreaming Becomes A Reality: A Tale of Two Bridges

Last week I had the privilege of visiting California for a short stay. I should have been attending a conference but this was rescheduled at late notice, so I decided to travel anyway & see a few sights.

This was my first ever US visit so I felt a bit like a boy in a toyshop.

My base was San Jose. The next few entries are a few of the sights I enjoyed.

Oakland Bridge, San Francisco

The ‘poor cousin’ of the Golden Gate Bridge,  the spectacular Oakland Bridge is a dual level bridge connecting 2 Freeways between San Francisco & Oakland, or the other way round if you live in Oakland.

Oakland Bay Bridge

And then, further along the Bay Front I came across the iconic Golden Gate Bridge to the north of San Francisco.  As the clouds cleared & the sun shone, it was another spectacular landmark.

About waywood

Hi & Welcome to my thoughts. I share subjects that are important to me. As you’ll notice, these subjects can be quite broad & varied. I like variety; I like breadth & I like a challenge. I am passionate about helping others overcome their fears, grow in confidence & succeed. Although many people would label me as an achiever, I have battled low confidence, low self-esteem & a couple of nasty, long periods depression over the years. I can’t say, “I know how you feel” but I can hopefully empathise & offer some of the things that are helping me to turn my life around. Please feel free to comment, share & enjoy. Take care, best wishes & keep well Stuart
