Does this picture location ever get old?

I have absolutely no idea how many pictures I have taken at this same spot with the Golden Gate Bridge in the background. It would have to be close to 50 or more. I can't help myself. I can think of at least 5 Christmas cards I have sent and each year I still think, "Maybe we should go to the Golden Gate Bridge and take our Christmas picture there." I clearly have a bit of a fetish with this particular landmark. I just never tire of it and it is always stunning to me no matter how often I see it. The bridge always seems to have that little fog at the top and I love how it is just suspended over the bay with all the sailboats around it with San Francisco in the background. Each year I look forward to the day after Thanksgiving because we head into San Fran and run the bridge. This year was extra fabulous because I actually ran it. Usually I walk with Ella and Charlie while everyone else runs but this year Nicholas wanted to walk so I got to run too and I have to say it was a real treat. The only difference is this year we were missing people. The Christensen's who usually join us were on a cruise and the John and Ann family only brought Elliott because Rachel had a soccer game and well Madeline was sleeping. They couldn't even stay in the city and eat breakfast because they had to get to Rachel's game. What high school has a game the day after Thanksgiving--come on and give the poor families a break!This is the picture you will see some version of several times a year--I can't help it!
Ella's turned out to be one of the best breakfast places I have been to. My southwestern eggs benedict were unbelievable. Ella's orange french toast was a close second.
I am grateful to live 30 min from this San Francisco landmark which takes my breath away every time I see it.

Ahhh! So sad to miss that! That spot is incredible. It also takes my breath away every time we go. When are we going to the city? Are you in for a bike ride through GG Park on the morning of Christmas Eve? If it's as cold as it is now I'm may be out.
