I LEFT MY HEART


A week or so ago Hubby and I and some friends visited our old stomping grounds.
There is nothing like San Francisco and the Golden Gate Bridge on a warm sunny day.
Is it any wonder that songs are written about this very magical place?
Be sure to enlarge this shot to see the details more clearly.

I am with you! I was born in the shadow of this city and it will always have a place in my heart! Lovely place!

What a stunning bridge it is!! The bay is also magnificent. Reminds me of the beauty of Sydney and its bridge and harbour!!!

A warm day in S.F.? You must have timed your visit just right! Lovely pic!

As soon as I opened your blog and saw the image I started singing - 'I left my heart..' - I had to smile when I saw what you had written.
Beautiful image!

One day I want to see that!

Willow said...

And now I have the song echoing in my brain!

I love that bridge and it has many childhood memories attached to it for me.

antigoni said...

Very nice picture. I hope you had great time. I wish i could visit that place one day.

Leena said...

I think even small kids here knows, what bridge this is.
And it is surely worth all those photos, which have been taken about it including your excellent photo!

Have a happy weekend, Sue!

(I am now two weeks without grandchildren and after that their autumn holidays start and they will be here :)

I've never been there, but the photos show a beautiful place that I would love to see.

MedaM said...

Spectacular view of really beautiful bridge I’ve never seen in private but only on the TV or photos. I also love that blue colour of the water and the sky without any clouds. Great shot, indeed!

ruth said...

It takes your breath away. I hope it's cooling down up there. We have real live fall weather, down in the 30s at night now.

The GGB is so cool and you were lucky to be there on a clear day. It's usually hit and miss.

Max-e said...

That has to be one of the most amazing bridges ever built

Thiên said...

Oh I love San Fran as well. I just love that place.

annulla said...

Wonderful shot! I left my heart there, too. I haven't been to San Francisco in a long, long time, and I probably wouldn't recognize the place.

Great photo. I have stood on that exact spot. Thanks for sharing and bringing back the memory.

Sorry for the sort reply, but We haven't been blogging much lately and commenting even less except in special cases. We should be back to normal in a month or so.

Thanks for the visit,
Troy and Martha

I lived in San Francisco for 9 years. I actually saw Tony Bennet sing "I Left My Heart in San Francisco" live, in person, on Union Square. It was surreal. He was there mostly to promote some lithographs of his that he was selling in Macy's across the street after the short concert (he is a visual artist as well as a singer it seems).
