I met up with some brand new friends for a photowalk in the Bay Area last weekend. We met up at the Bay Area Discovery Museum (which looked cute, if you have little kids to entertain) & then walked down to the boats & the water from there. Some of us climbed the hill behind us, too, which led up to Battery Yates (abandoned) & some stunning views of San Francisco & the Golden Gate Bridge.

Its was only the most stunning day ever & we had a seriously gorgeous view of the bridge & the city. As if that weren’t enough, check out this cute sailboat that showed up. Can we talk about perfect?

It’s almost like we requested it specifically for the photos. Somebody on Instagram asked if it was a toy boat. It’s not, but I definitely understand where they were coming from with that.

One thing I really like about this spot is that it’s waaaay less crowded than the traditional vista points where most tourists & buses & crowds go to enjoy the view of the bridge & snap photos of the famous red icon. Not to mention, it’s usually super windy up by the bridge, but down here it’s a little more sheltered & you can hear yourself talk.

Instead of waiting in line on the bridge to get into the vista point, popping out for a quick photo that you can use to brag about your trip on Instagram, & huddling in your car again as soon as you can, take the extra ten minutes in the car to get here & enjoy free parking, lots of spaces, & room to get out & wander, all while still enjoying the views.

There are some lovely boats harbored in the area as it is the Sausalito marina.

The view of San Francisco skyline is really unrivaled from here, especially on a clear day. On the left, you can see the Bay Bridge, which would take you to the East Bay (Berkeley, Oakland, Emeryville, etc.) & then off to the right, you can see some of San Francisco’s famous buildings & landmarks. Isn’t it a seriously stunning view?

Of course, no sunset view of San Francisco’s skyline would be complete without a breathtaking view of the famous bridge. Is this good enough for you? (Hint: It’s good enough for me.)
