Round Robin Challenge: BIG

"Enjoy the little things, for one day you may look back and realize they were the BIG things."

-Robert Brault

Hosted By Karen

Last month, Alan and I took a cruise on the Bay. The "Escape From The Rock" cruise is a 90 minute cruise that takes you on a voyage from Pier 39, to the Golden Gate Bridge, and back around Alcatraz. It is a fantastic way to see the Golden Gate, because the ship goes under the bridge and gives you a nice perspective to see it in all it's glory! Now matter how many times I see the Golden Gate Bridge it always takes my breath away!

Here is a night shot of the bridge, taken a few years back. It was taken from the Marin side of the Golden Gate, looking back toward San Francisco.

Now for something completely different! Last year my orange tabby, Dylan, was bitten by a spider. As you can see the fang marks are quite significant! When I took my boy to see Dr. B, the doc seemed to know what kind if spider it might have been, but didn't name any one type specifically. I think he wanted to spare me the nightmares I would have probably had! Just one more reason why I appreciate Dr. B. !

There you go, that is my contribution for this outing of the Round Robin Challenge! Now, go see what everyone else has chosen for their posts! You can find the participation list HERE!

Love your favorite BIG bridge! Poor kitty - I'd be having nightmares myself!

That's one huge bite from a spider, I hate to think of the size of it, since the bite is quiet big. Love all the shots of the bridge, no matter how many time I seen it here in your blog, I never get sick of it.

Your bridge photos are just wonderful and that spider bite is pretty terrifying. I tend to pooh-pooh spiders...they never really bother me but this is making me rethink....

I hope that Dylan will be fine.

I hope Dylan's doing better.

I love your bridge shots. The Golden Gate is just so big that you never really can prepare yourself for how beautiful it is until you're really standing there looking at it in person. I've gotten a few good shots of it when I've visited San Fran, but your shots are always so much better than mine!
