The Golden Gate Bridge’s 75th Anniversary Party

with 2 comments

I spent a good part of last Sunday’s 75th anniversary of the Golden Gate Bridge on the Tiburon deck of friends Wiebke and Uwe. They have a panoramic view of the San Francisco Bay, Angel Island State Park, and the Golden Gate Bridge.

The red building you see on Angel Island is the Camp Reynolds 12-bed Army Hospital built in 1905 and abandoned in 1946.

There was a moment when I thought the vodka blimp was going to bump me off the deck. I wasn’t even drinking.

Uwe asked me to take a photo of the fireworks on the Golden Gate Bridge, maybe to send to his friends in Germany. I can’t blame him if he wants to brag a little about his view. This is a composite of some of the best bursts.
