I wanted to share with everyone. My DH John took this sequence of photos as the Wonder left the Bay. Photos were taken from Hawk Hill (http://www.yelp.com/biz/hawk-hill-park-san-francisco) in the Marin Headlands (http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Marin_Headlands#Hawk_Hill) above the Golden Gate Bridg (http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Golden_Gate_Bridge)e as the Wonder was leaving the San Francisco Bay.

Those spots in the Marin Headlands have some of the most beautiful vistas I've ever had the privilege to see personally. It only gets better with the DCL Wonder in them. I've already promised my wife to take her there someday.

Thanks for sharing!

Thank you for sharing these pics.

I love SF and I love the Wonder too! She was our first cruise and will always havea special place in our heart.

We were stationed at Travis AFB and spent a lot of time in the Bay area. We love the area. Every day my husband checks to see if there is a slot open to come back that way.

You truly made my day with these pics. I had to break out the tissues for a bit, but they were good tears and brought back some great memories.

Thank you!:flower3:

Wonderful shots! I'll be on the Wonder in Sept 2012 for the Pacific cruise and can't wait. I'm from San Jose and grew up in Reno and just love that area. Really looking forward to showing DH the area on our excursion days

I must have a pic of your husband here somewhere (not in the pics below). I was on the opposite side of the GG when the Wonder left. I'd posted these in the 'Wonder returns due to medical emergency' thread.

We were on the Golden Gate Bridge as the "Disney Wonder" sailed underneath it, and what a great experience that was. The city and ship together were a beautiful sight, then the closeness of the ship as it passed below was breathtaking.

We were waving big white Mickey hands and it sure looked like we were noticed. If anyone on the starboard side took photos of us, we'd love to see those!

The following were already posted at Cheer the Wonder Bon Voyage from San Franciso (http://www.disboards.com/showthread.php?t=2709880&page=6), so pardon us for repeating them here. We like them so much we want to share them twice.

Here are two links to videos we took:

http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=OLGiV_-4XUY

http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=IS2nlP6iMao

The second video has her blowing her horn as she approaches the bridge, now that was a magical moment.

My DH made a slide show of the pictures I posted earlier for people to view. It opens immediately if you are running windows software. If you are running apple software, you need to flick it.
