I finally did it. I walked across the Golden Gate Bridge! I’ve been admiring the bridge from afar for the past 6 months, and even driven across it a few times, but had yet to set foot on it. I’ve always been a little bit weird about bridges. It’s a love-hate relationship. I think they’re beautiful, but they kind of terrify me at the same time…probably because most of my nightmares when I was a kid involved a crazy roller-coaster-like bridge. I also don’t get how they’re built. I’ve had bridge engineers explain it to me, but I still don’t really understand how they could get something under water to support the weight of it all. I think I’ll just settle on it being a bit of a mystery. So… this was a big deal to walk across. It was extremely windy, so I had to suppress the childhood nightmares and reassure myself that I wasn’t going to blow over the top of the railing. Oh… and if you do get a chance to walk across, leave your missiles at home. You’re not allowed to throw any off the bridge.
