San Francisco and Wednesday Gratitude #35 at Heart and Home


Hello again friends.
How's everything?
I'm thinking about you!

It's Gratitude Wednesday.
If you'd like you can link your Gratitude post below.




We can only be said to be alive in those moments when our hearts are conscious of our treasures. ~Thornton Wilder

I'm always inspired when I see the Golden Gate Bridge.

I'm grateful for the wonder and excitement of a day spent in my favorite city.
 I love the spectacular view from up here,
on the edge of Lincoln Park overlooking the Pacific ocean.



 To me, it's thrilling knowing powerful ocean waves are crashing
 just beyond the rolling hills of the golf course.


I'm thankful for a day spent browsing
at the beautiful Legion of Honor museum in Lincoln Park.
(check out the link for more info.)

The lion guarding the entrance is freshly power-washed.
Which is the only way to wash a lion, I'm sure.


After a busy day in the bustling city,
I'm thankful for a return to my quiet part of the world,
and my home among the redwood trees.

I'm grateful for the soft rustle of the wind in the treetops...


...and for the beauty of a full moon on a peaceful night.

Goodnight, my friends!
Until next time,
XO
Heidi

Heidi, sounds like it was a nice day. Your pictures always transport me as if I was there. We don't have tall trees in central Texas, so I have to see through your pictures. Hope you're holiday is blessed with courage, peace, and happiness!

Calling by from News From Italy via this week's Outdoor Wednesday,the last photo of the full moon is my favourite. It is wonderful that we look at a similar view wherever we are in the world.

Beautiful, Heidi!
My favorite part is when you return to your lovely and peaceful home in the redwoods.

Well my dear, your photos of San Fransisco are stunning! I spent about 6 mos. there when I was younger. I agree, the view of the Golden Gate bridge is breathtaking! Of course, you live in a very beautiful area as well! Thank you for sharing your lovely photos with us...it was such a treat! I too am thankful for all of my many blessings!!! I loved the Thornton Wilder quote...beautifully said!
