While Chris was visiting this past weekend, we decided to visit the Golden Gate Bridge. I drove and he (in theory) navigated. I kept asking what the exit was and he just said it was the last exit before the bridge. As we get close to our destination, I ask "Is this the exit?" He replies "Yes".
But it wasn't. We found ourselves on CA-1 South for a while before we had an option to turn off to reverse direction. All the while Chris is trying to access a map on his cell phone (web-capable but not quite a smart phone). With his phone, it takes him a while to navigate the map (I assume it's because of the map refreshing each time he moves in one direction), and so after a while I realize something:
"You know, there are some actual maps over there." (Referring to the slot on the passenger-side door)
At first it seemed like Chris had forgotten how to use a real map, but his apparent confusion quickly becomes fascination: "Look at all the detail I can see without having to zoom in!" "There's so much stuff on here!" "You have to blog about this." (Here ya go, Chris. Happy?)
With the help of the good old-fashioned map, we finally made our way to the parking lot near the foot of the bridge and were rewarded with a spectacular view on a beautiful day:
