San Francisco, America - 17th July 2012

By: Shilo

Good morning World and Mum.

Today is our second and last day here in San Francisco, because tomorrow we will travel on to the Yosemite National Park. So I have to hurry to dominate the rest of this city, because of that I have planned a lot for today.
After our breakfast, I started my tour at Fishermen’s wharf again. From there we planned to walk to the Golden Gate Bridge. I am planning to relabel the bridge, but I am not sure which name I should give it at the moment. What do you think about Purple Gate Bridge? Or Purple Tentacle Bridge? I am not sure at the moment, but I will think about it on our way.
We walked along the beach of the bay. Isn’t the view great from here? I could see Alcatraz out there.

After a long way from an hour we are very close to the bridge. I am so excited about it and the weather is so unbelievable nice today.

On the bottom of the bridge we arrived at an old Fort. Fort Point was build 1794 and was completed just before the American Civil War, to defend San Francisco Bay against hostile warships. The fort is now protected as Fort Point National Historic Site, a United States National Historic Site administered by the National Park Service as a unit of the Golden Gate National Recreation Area.
I think I will make this fort to my new military base. But before I am sure about it I had a look around the fort with the others.

I also guided the others to the top of the fort, from where we had a great view over the bay.

Yeah I think it will be a great military base for me. Because of that I had to show the others how they had to use the cannons.

Now that everything is settled at the fort we could move on to the bridge. But wait beneath the fort we found these interesting looking sign. A friendly old man, told us about the story behind this sign. Hopper is a true San Francisco hero. He is one of the many Golden gate bridge’s iron workers that not only risk their life each day maintaining this beautiful bridge, but volunteer to save the lives of lost souls attempting to end their lives jumping off the bridge. He saved 30 people in the time he was working at the bridge.
When he noticed that waterfront joggers have a ritual of touching the fence at the dead-end of the sidewalk next to Fort Point, he had the bridge's sign painter make a sign with two handprints on it, and another sign with two dog paws, because one woman had her dog touch the fence.
Now everybody is touching this sign. Hmm do you think a tentacle sign would look better than these hands?  I think I will put it onto my “to do list”. But for the moment we also touched the sign, before we went the way back to climb up to the bridge.

Now I am finally standing on the Golden gate bridge. I am very happy about it and the view over San Francisco is so beautiful. And I finally decided how to rename the bridge, now it will be called the “Purple Gate Bridge” What do you think about the name? I think it sounds great.

After the bridge we walked on to the National cemetery. I planned to show my comrades really strong fighters and heroes. It was very impressive to see all this mass of graves. We saw graves from people who fought in more than one war and survived them. And we saw a grave from a person who got the Medal of Honor.

I finally found my new head quarter here in San Francisco. It will be the Palace of fine arts. It is the perfect place for me, because I think the Greek looking architecture suites me really good. Don’t you think so?

Today was really productive because I completed my mission to dominate San Francisco. Now the whole city is mine. Can you hear me San Francisco?! You are MINE!!!
This was the first place in California which belongs to me now. I am very excited to see the next stop on my domination tour through America tomorrow.

So good night and see you tomorrow.
