    Very nice … my commute ferry takes me by the Golden Gate every morning, I never tire of the view to the Golden Gate

  3. John Peabody says:

    My inner nerdom makes me inform some readers that the entrance to the harbor was known as the “Golden Gate” long before the bridge was built. The bridge was named for the passage, not the other way around.

    Somewhere to the left (or ‘larbord or port) side of that scene there is a patch of water called the ‘potato patch’ which at periods of strong tidal flow has been known to capsize small boats and eat windsurfers.
