Unreal Beauty

Unreal Beauty


I am surprised at how beautiful it is here.

We took our first ride over “the bridge” to go to Battery Spencer.

You see hundreds of pictures. You see it in movies and TV shows. You may even hear people talk about it. At least that’s how it was for me. I didn’t realize how in awe I would be.

When I first saw the bridge, I gasped–it was truly beautiful! I understood why you hear about it and see it all the time. Pictures can’t do it justice.

Auggie and I were squealing with excitement!

I couldn’t wait to get to Battery Spencer.

Nothing could have prepared me for what I was about to see.

Keep in mind, I have never been West. The furthest West I have ever been was Nashville, Tennessee.

We had to take a small hike for the best view.


I was left breathless several times.

The 360 view was absolutely amazing to me. You had the rolling mountains to your right, the gorgeous, rocky, Pacific Ocean to right in front of you, the city of San Francisco to your left, and the amazing Golden Gate Bridge behind you.


The day was absolutely beautiful. It has been raining for weeks; someone told us that–because of the rain–this is the most green you will ever see it.

After lots of pictures and taking in the splendor, we headed to the beach to eat lunch.

It was cold and beautiful.

It seriously feels like we are in a different country.

Maybe it is because of my lack of travel, but California has taken my breath away unlike anything else.

This weekend we made it to Pier 39 to see the famous sea lions. It was hilarious to watch them and guess their personalities by their behavior.


But the view.

I don’t know if I will ever get used to it.

I guess because we didn’t leave the US I didn’t expect it to be so drastically different.

I don’t know where we will end up, or where the Lord will take us, but I do know I am quite enjoying the work of His fingers.

Psalm 8 becomes real.





One thought on “Unreal Beauty

  1. Summer, I have been there quite a few times, and it never ceases to amaze me. The whole Northwest coast in general. I think it is the most beautiful place ever! I am looking forward to seeing your experiences actually living there. 🙂
