San Francisco: A Foggy Morning at Baker Beach.

It was just after sunrise on a Thursday morning and I found myself with a coffee and along the Pacific Ocean at Baker Beach in San Francisco.

The roughly half-mile beach begins on the north end at Golden Gate Point, where the Golden Gate Bridge touches the San Francisco peninsula. The southern terminus is the Sea Cliff neighborhood. It is part of the Golden Gate National Recreation Area.

Another beach, another photo capturing seaweed.

The north end of the beach is known as a nude beach. Didn’t see anyone who bared it all on this day. In fact only a few joggers were here in the chilly early morning hours.

The north end is also where the best rock formations are. The waves were calm when I was there, but be careful to hang around them or venture into the water due to the higher surfs.

Many people come to the beach to capture the great views of the Golden Gate Bridge and Marin Headlands. They’re both straight ahead but the all day fog (I tried coming back later in the day) eliminated that opportunity. 😦 Something to look forward to on the next trip!

Other than the fog it was a great early morning stroll on Baker Beach. With a coffee, the beach and the Pacific Ocean right in front of you, you can’t really complain. 🙂

What are your favorite spots to hit up in San Francisco in the early morning hours?
