I spent a little time on this beach with some friends, watching the pelicans, crabs, and fishermen. This one waded right into the surf for his catch. They day was grey and dreary, but the red hues of the Golden Gate Bridge always perk up the mood.
This bridge is beautiful, and has an interesting history, but my favorite fact about the bridge is that it is always being painted. A team of painters works full time to touch up the most corroded parts as needed. When I say a team of painters, I don't mean 3 guys and a bucket. There are thirty-eight painters who maintain the now-acrylic topcoats.
Watching the painters work high up on the cables has always made me nervous for them, but what a great job! What do you do for a living? I paint the Golden Gate Bridge...
