Here we are, the third day of the New Year, and I’ve yet to spend a full day at the beach.
I did however go hiking at Land’s End in San Francisco on New Year’s Day. The trail begins above the Cliff House (a long-standing and popular San Francisco bar and restaurant) and winds around the back of the Sea Cliff area (pricey homes – Robin Williams lives there) and the Palace of Fine Arts (one of my favorite museums), through part of the Presidio and then heads down to the Marina district (yuppie-ville, except of course there’s no such thing as a yuppie anymore – I am not sure what replaced the yups –
Lovely views along the way of the ocean, Golden Gate Bridge, Marin on the other side, and the Bay.
You can hike down to Mile Rock Beach on the ocean side of the trail (must have a mile of rocks, eh?).
Rumor has it that this is a nude beach. I have never seen any nudes in the general vicinity. Except of course for the statue of Rodin’s Thinker at the Palace high above.
I confess: not all the pics posted here are mine – I stole a few from the Internet. You will have to guess which ones are mine and which are stolen.
