There is a lovely spot to spy on the "City" from the Marin side of the Bay. Covello Point.   Near the Coast Guard Station at Fort Baker and within spitting distance of the G. G. Bridge.

The Golden Gate Bridge is still casting colorful reflections on Horseshoe Bay. This is the area of the Coast Guard Station and Travis Marina. During WW2 Travis Air Force Base maintained a landing for ships at this port just inside and under the Golden Gate Bridge. Exp: 10sec, f-4.5, ISO-100, -1 exp-comp.

Gandhi has been keeping an eye on the western section of the Bay Bridge. But on the new eastern span, construction has hit discomforting snags with bolts snapping while being tightened. I'm not sure if Gandhi reviewed the plans and specifications or not.
