Narrow — Golden Gate, San Francisco’s Treasure

The cruise ship sailed through the narrow entrance to San Francisco Bay on the early morning tide to it’s mooring at the new Cruise Terminal at pier 27.

The top deck was nearly empty as the cruise ship passed under Golden Gate Bridge. Fortunately, my sister was awake and on deck. She took these photos on her iPhone, which I am happy to share.

Here is the first shot she took. Fort Point is under the bridge and Land’s End is visible on the right.

Bon voyage, travelers everywhere, but remember to get up early when you arrive in port.
