My girlfriend went on a trip along California's Golden Coast recently. Here's our documentation.
The first stop was Fort Fuston Park. A true hidden gem on the southern edge of San Francisco.
On one side, there were views of San Francisco's hills -- Twin Peaks, Mount Davidson, Forrest Knolls.
On the other side, there were views of a bumpy grassland.
Beyond the grassland, was the vast Pacific Ocean.
People scattered around to find good photo spots.
Dogs ran around gleefully.
The hike is a decent portion. So we decided to move on.
The patterns, foliage and pathways kept us mesmerized for a while though.
Twin Peaks' Sutro tower stands clear in the distance.
A short drive later, we arrived at a vista point along the coast.
It was a windy day, so many kitesurfers were out and about.
They were quite good! And we stood to take pictures.
Some of them traversed the water surface rapidly, as if on jet skis.
The waves crashed beneath the cliff.
A short while later, we ended up on this railway tracks. By then we sun was beginning to set.
The could see the water just beyond the bushes.
A few hikes stood around, looking for pathways to get over the bushes down into the beach.
Suddenly, we came across an opening.
A natural beach and cove.
Let's find a way down. I said.
My girlfriend and I began a small hike downwards.
Wow. How amazing is that!
We both exclaimed.
I thought this kind of view only existed in dreams.
The waves crashed violently, yet rhythmically against the rocks.
I snapped the shots.
Seagulls walked around the beach.
Trying to find any food that people may have left behind.
The wave crash in four frames.
She sat on the beach. :)
I decided to join her.
It was a beautiful day.
Here's the video proof. Enjoy! :)
