A long-awaited visit to Marshall Beach, San Francisco

By
Real Estate Agent with Compass CA DRE# 01215160

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.

Stairs to Marshall Beach, SF

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

Living in San Francisco never gets old. Let me know if you're ready to find your spot in The City. We'll talk.

Lottie- Wow! LOTS of steps. I wouldn't mind the walk down, not so much the climb back up.  Sounds like you both had a great walk. Well deserved break afterwards.

Good morning Lottie. Must say, I am jealous! In Chicago, lead posioning is a big concern and COVID is a big concern about relocating. Enjoy your day!

Hello Lottie - I don't recall knowing about Marshall Beach in San Francisco.  Although there is always the possibility I was aware but didn't know the name and just thought it was another wonderful part of the city.  Combined with the nice day you enjoyed, the wine your husband is holding seems like an ideal way to end the weekend and salute a new week.

Did I ever tell you I went to his Winery? and I thought it was pretty bad that he shut down all the wine tastings in California with the exception of his winery.... makes me wonder....Endre

Hi Endre Barath, Jr. - any number of wineries have been open for a while, not just Newsom's. We enjoyed a catered box lunch and wine outdoors at Buena Vista Winery, for instance, way back in early June. Looks like that might be curtailed again, however, with the rising number of cases.

Hi Ron and Alexandra Seigel and hello Michael Jacobs - Marshall Beach is a small beach, tucked under the bluffs between Baker Beach and the Golden Gate Bridge. The only access is down--and back up--long and beautiful staircases so it doesn't get many visitors.

Hi Brian England and Grant Schneider - San Francisco is a walker's paradise, 12 months of the year. One reason, I suppose, we have to pay big bucks to live here.

Hello Wayne Martin - I didn't know that lead poisoning was an issue in Chicago. Does it affect the beaches at the lake? In drinking water? That sounds serious.
