The ocean!

16Dec10

Last week while recovering from my Stomach Bug of Death I took the metro all the way out to the last stop before the Pacific, Ocean Beach.  The weather was pretty horrible: damp and foggy, but it’s always nice to walk on a beach (even if you can’t actually see much of it).

Mmm, fog.

I walked along until I reached the Cliff House.  There used to be a spectacular Victorian gothic building there which survived the 1906 earthquake only to burn down the following year (this site has lots of pictures of the original).  The replacement building is pretty soulless, but it’s as good a place as any to stop for lunch (or to pick at your food for half an hour, in my case – was possibly still not completely recovered at this point).

The Cliff House (plus a lot of stupid fog).
