Last weekend we took a day to play tourist in our own city and stroll through some favorite San Francisco spots. I've been trying to soak up the last of these summer days with being outdoors as much as possible. We walked drenched in sunlight through Lands End Park and enjoyed some incredible ocean views.
The Lands End Park and Sutro Baths are some of the most interesting historical sights in San Francisco. In true San Franciscan spirit the baths were build in 1894 by millionaire Adolph Sutro, a self-made entrepreneur who pioneered progress in the silver mines. Built in the spirit of philanthropy with the middle-class people of San Francisco in-mind, Sutro created 22 acres of public gardens and a bath house containing 7 salt water swimming pools. The park sits right at the edge of the coast providing breathtaking views of the Pacific Ocean.
The elaborate bath house did not stand the test of time and today all that can be seen are concrete ruins. The gardens and cliff-side trails are in excellent condition and make for the perfect scenic stroll. We took a day to play tourist in our own city and stroll through some favorite spots.
