Might as well jump...JUMP!
So while we were crossing the Golden Gate Bridge into San Francisco, we had to stop while the police talked someone out of jumping off the bridge. We got to the other side, and the person went back and jumped anyways. The police went back up the bridge and dropped a flare to point where that person went in, but there was no effort to chase. We later found out that this happens pretty regularly in SF. If you're going to do it, I guess the Golden Gate is the place.
Wake Up San Francisco
The streets of San Francisco are beautiful. Lining every rolling street, are these great Victorian homes, each home cooler than the next. We were never able to get to Oakland, but we did spend a few good days on the west side walking through Fisherman's Wharf and biking by Candlestick Park.
The Jellyfish at the Monterey Aquarium were one of the highlights of the month for me. James and I spent all day walking through the aquarium, seeing fish and other sea life I never imagined. Right now, there is a whole wing dedicated to all the types of sea horses.
We are now in San Diego. We haven't had any real trouble the past few weeks and the weather is great.. Our legs are very strong right now and we found a great routine with our meals and distances. James and I are taking a week off at the moment to let our bodies recover so we can start our push to the east coast. The west coast is absolutely amazing to me and I know it is going to be hard to leave.
