Part of Gareth's birthday present was a helicopter ride across San Francisco. It was really worthwhile and we actually had ages up in the air to really see everything and take loads of photos. I was terrified to go up in a helicopter, but now I want to fly everywhere in one. It was so smooth. As the pilot came up the the Golden Gate Bridge he revealed what he does is go under it in good conditions - we had good conditions. We scooped right under the bridge only a few feet off the water and zoomed up the other side like a roller coaster. Now I look back and loved it but it was really scary. (I am so glad I wasn't warned about this before or I would have been worried for the whole flight). Great day!
