Cruising The Bay, In One Day…Kid N Drei…Part 4…Strolling Along The Golden Gate

GG BridgeThe Golden Gate Bridge…On this foggy San Francisco Wednesday, September 13, 2017

After a visit to The Painted Ladies, San Francisco continues to open it’s Golden Gate…For Kid N Drei…

Nancy Bea Hefley, during her days tickling the ivories of the Rowland organ at Dodger Stadium, would always serenade the crowd with that classic tune during the opening lineups when the hated one’s we’re in town…

We’ve finally arrived Kid! Every time I’ve come to The City, I’ve never had a chance to walk across The Golden Gate. I walked the Oakland Bay Bridge back in 2013 after it’s enhancement that added a pedestrian and bike path…

The Golden Gate Bridge. 80 years young. This is the first time Drei has walked across The Golden Gate. Who better to join Drei than the broham, Kid…

One thing Kid N Drei share is their love of long walks and hikes. Unlike Drei, Kid has been a bit more adventurous, having hiked Yosemite’s Half Dome not long ago…Perhaps someday Drei will try that hike. 

Time to give The Golden Gate…A Touch of Dodger Blue

Before Kid N Drei head back to the San Francisco side of The Golden Gate, we decide to take a hike up a hill toward Battery Spencer. Up here, on a clear day, the views of The Bay from Battery Spencer can be very gorgeous. However, on this “hella” foggy day, the views of The Bay are non-existent.

To get up to the top of Battery Spencer, we first follow a pedestrian path underneath the bridge that would lead us to a trail…

20170913_124049.jpg Karl The Fog may have covered most of the bridge, but no amount of fog would stop Kid N Drei from giving The Golden Gate…A Touch of…DODGER BLUE !!!

20170913_124323.jpgMoments later, and Karl the Fog has covered our view of The Golden Gate Bridge…

We made it Kid! Kid N Drei, officially giving The Bay, a Touch of Dodger Blue. Blue, as Drei likes to call the fleece, has been well traveled since 2004. The fog may have taken away the view of The Bay, but that doesn’t deny the beauty behind Kid N Drei, as The Golden Gate provides the perfect silhouette to the fog with Kid N Drei…(Kid, I know I’ve hung with you for a minute,  but really you should be the one providing the beatz…)

Allright Kid, time for us to head on back. How ‘bout some of your acapella freestylez Kid?

Hey Kid, I know you own two cats, but even with all this fog and mist, Drei says it’s still a good day to take Blue Dog for a walk across The Golden Gate…

We did it! Kid N Drei crossed The Golden Gate. With stops and the hike to Battery Spencer included, it would take Kid N Drei a total of 3 hours to stroll the bridge and back. It was quite a stroll, highlighted by Karl The Fog…

As memorable a walk Kid N Drei had across The Golden Gate, one thing Drei must advise…When walking across the bridge, keep in mind that other tourists will be strolling along both on foot and bike. Like Kid N Drei, you’ll probably be taking lots of pics, especially if you’re like Drei. Be careful though, some of these same folks on the bridge, especially the bicyclists, tend to have little patience of other tourists snapping their countless pics.

We got to come back Kid and explore more trails. Just slow down for Drei every now and then. Remember, “Viejo”, as you like to call Drei, can’t always keep up with you…

Now that we’ve cruised The Golden Gate, it’s time for Kid N Drei to continue on. Next stop, Golden Gate Park. From The Golden Gate…
