One of our “staycation” trips was to our own world-famous landmark which happened to be part of our landmark set – the Golden Gate Bridge. Unfortunately, while the temperatures in the Silicon Valley were soaring over 90, the Golden Gate Bridge was drowning in chilly fog. We were prepared with jackets, but it was still disappointing to drive all the way to San Francisco (about an hour and a half drive), shiver in the wind and see very little. Anna was a good sport about it – she doesn’t mind long trips when she has her books and her CDs. She was thoroughly entertained by Little House on the Prairie, and all we heard from the back seat were occasional comments on the events in the audio book. She didn’t even fuss when we had to skip Children Discovery Museum in Sausalito – it was incredibly crowded, and we didn’t feel like paying $30 just to look over the heads of shoulders of other adults and bigger kids. I hope we can come again in the winter when the weather in San Francisco tends to be a lot better. Then we will enjoy our very own landmark in all its glory.
