Nah, I'll pass on the Golden Gate Bridge t-shirt — I've got memories instead

I don't think I've ever stumbled into anything this wonderful while traveling:
Several feet away sat a couple on vacation from Ireland who happened to stumble on the historic event. Christine Yearsley said she planned to stay at City Hall the rest of the afternoon to witness as much as she could.

"This gentleman just told me there are two elderly ladies who are getting married today after being together for 50 years," she said. "They're obviously committed! I think it's terrific. They're an example for heterosexuals, I think."
Yeah, I'd have spent the rest of the day hanging out at City Hall too, I think.

From an article in the SF Chron about Del Martin and Phyllis Lyon's wedding.
