Beautiful Bay

Spent the day in Sausalito and then cruised the Bay. A great day despite it being exceptionally windy and cold. So cold that we had to buy thermal wear. A greta day out.

Really loved walking and viewing this beautiful piece of history! Have an Uber take you all the way across, if you don't want to walk the round trip, then just walk back!
