Back to San Francisco I go! I’ll soon be returning to the city by the bay and like the many times before, your first Ocean Beach. Last summer was no exception. The first thing I did when entering San Fran was head over to the beach to capture a few shots along the Pacific Ocean in the early evening.
On another day I headed back over driving along the Great Highway which runs alongside the beach and parked at about 6 a.m.
The marine layer and infamous fog was out in full force and there was a cold breeze off the Pacific. That didn’t faze me as I was at one of “those” spots that I’ve relished coming to since I was a kid. I hung out and relaxed with my coffee and there were some birds, a few runners, surfers and people with cameras around.
I started climbing up the incline where Great Highway turns into Point Lobos Avenue. I was heading towards the Cliff House, capturing some pictures of the beach from above.
Along the way I stared at the ocean and waves…
…the beach and shoreline…
…and the coastline looking south.
Doing a 360, there was the San Francisco’s Camera Obscura, which is on the National Register of Historic Places, and the Seal Rocks, a rock formation island right off the coast.
Right alongside the Camera Obscura and Cliff House I looked down at the rocks, beach and ocean waters before heading back towards Ocean Beach.
Another trip to San Francisco, more great times around Ocean Beach and the Pacific coast. It doesn’t matter whether it’s sunny or fogged-in your first Ocean Beach, when in San Francisco. 🙂
For cities or places that you frequent in your travels, what’s that one place you always seem to want to get to right off the bat?
