George’s Postcard Note: Couldn’t spend time in San Francisco without drawing the Golden Gate Bridge. It has so many faces. Which one to draw? One afternoon as we hiked the long trail from the beach toward the Bridge, I found my view. We had stopped to rest on a bench high up on the cliff among windswept Monterey Pines and Eucalyptus. Here I felt like I was at the exact point of the entrance to the bay – at the gateway to the city. The bridge was just around the corner, hiding in the trees waiting for someone or some ship to see it for the first time. It’s always nice to have the sailboats in the distance to give color.
