GOLDEN STATE SWING
This spot has been on my bucket list for years now and I was so excited to finally find it. Whoever put that rope there deserves a pat on the back because it really makes for a memorable trip. I mean, when was the last time you were on a swing? Plus it has the most epic view of the city and the entire Golden Gate Bridge.
I don’t know why but I am the worst swinger. I always manage to flip upside down, run into a tree, let go too soon, or better yet, the rope swing breaks when I finally work up the courage to try it. Over the years on Instagram I have seen pictures of this swing for years and I have always been so envious of the people that found it. Sometimes its hard to find these secret spots, but I guess that’s why they remain so secret. Well we finally found it, and I originally planned on not swinging because of my bad luck with swings. This is just an old piece of rope attached to thin piece of wood. I’m no knot expert but it didn’t look very solid to me. So Jerry went first, and of course he looked like he was having the time of his life and not to mention the photo looked really cool. After about an hour of contemplation I decided to give it a try. Luckily there was no one down there when we were visiting so we had all the time in the world to look like complete fools. You will be happy to know that the rope held up and I successfully swung over the San Francisco Bay.
