After reading many wonderful posts written by Ron and Alexandra Seigel as they share their beach walks with us, I felt a yearning to visit little Marshall Beach in San Francisco which I hadn't done for too long.
I've written about Marshall Beach before, recounting a run through the Presidio, then down the many stairs to the beach before returning to my car. This last Friday afternoon my husband and I headed out for our daily walk toward the end of the day, and Marshall Beach was once again calling me.
Down the many stairs we went, then had a delightful, relaxed stroll along the beach. Tide was in, making parts of the beach closest to the Golden Gate Bridge inaccessible, but there was plenty to enjoy.
After drying off my wet feet the best I could, it was time to head up an even longer flight of stairs which took us up to Immigrant Point, and then back to our car.
A 10-minute car ride, 90 minutes of hiking and 10 minutes home -- just in time for dining al fresco at our favorite neighborhood seafood restaurant, just 3 blocks from home, Hyde Street Seafood House
