Fort Point

Another place we visited on our San Francisco adventure was Fort Point. Fort Point is an old Civil War era fort that is built underneath the Golden Gate Bridge. In the days before the bridge, it's guns guarded the entrance to the bay. Today it is part of the national parks system and a really neat place to visit.

OPB pretending to load the cannon. He is very interested in military history so this was one of his favorite stops.

AGB is phot bombing OPB and CMB, 12 years olds think they are so funny!
All three kids out on the forts top area, it also has great views of the bay and of Alcatraz and Angle Islands.

They did a cannon loading demonstration and all my kids got to participate. Another highlight!

My certified cannoners!
