Impressionists by the sea in San Francisco and the Golden Gate

In addition to the great trip to Mendocino and Ft. Bragg, we also spent a few days in San Francisco with a friend.  The Legion of Honor Museum is having an exhibit of paintings by French impressionists with the theme of boating and the sea.  Beautiful models of boats that were in paintings in the 19th century and also, of course, Monets, Seurats, Degas, and others.  It is not a big exhibit, but it does work the theme well.

When we walked outside of the museum and looked to our left, the light was so perfect over the bay that it looked like another impressionist painting.  When we walked down a little bit, we were rewarded with lovely views of the Golden Gate Bridge.  I didn't have my camera with me, though.  Sorry.  You'll just have to go see it yourself!
