Fridays with Manny



In the last week’s postI wrote about San Francisco’s Ocean Beach. When was the last time you visited this natural wonder, 3.5 miles of sand and waves? It is different every day, if not every hour, and it is always beautiful; not only the sunsets.

In the early days of San Francisco, it was known as part of “Outside Lands”. And then in 1884, the steam railroad started to bring people for the first amusement rides. The Cliff House, which opened in 1863 and Sutro Baths in 1896, drew thousands of visitors. Though Sutro Baths has been long gone, you can still enjoy beautiful views from the Cliff House restaurant.

Because of the cool weather and very cold water, most of the time the beach is not crowded.  But on sunny days the beach is packed. Thanks to Max, who can run along the beach leash free, we often come here. Hope to see you there next time. Meanwhile, enjoy these three images.

And do not forget to share with a friend!
