ABC WEDNESDAY LETTER " G "



     Here we are again posting for ABC Wednesday.

     Todays letter is " G ".


     Considering my history with the  GOLDEN GATE Bridge,

     Posting something about it was a " GIVEN ".




    This is an early photo of where the GOLDEN GATE Bridge was GOING to span
   
    the San Francisco Bay.




     Here is the successful completion of that important project.





       Set on the hillside above the Bay are many GRAVES.

       After many years the GRASS around the military stones was worn out.

      The workers were replacing the GRASS and cleaning each individual

       GRAVE marker, GIVING the cemetery its proper respect again.




       This photo is a throwback to 2010.

        Three of our GRANDKIDS came to visit their GREAT GRANDPARENTS 

       GRAVESITE.

       They GENTLY each placed a flower on the marker.

       Tender memories of a time GONE by.

      Be sure to visit the other posts for ABC Wednesday.

I only know that bridge from photographs and movies but hopefully someday i will see it for my self...

Cemetaries always have an intriging effect on me ...don't know why ...

Have a nice day,

So much history. Love the early picture before the bridge. We watched a documentary on the building of the bridge...Done with mostly man power and not all the technology of today. We still have our rivet you gave us. Love and Hugs.

I lived in SF for many years, which now seems so long ago. I can never get enough of seeing the Golden Gate Bridge. Thanks for reminding me of some happy moments. :-)
