…was a summer in San Francisco. This quote has always been attributed to Mark Twain, so it’s a shame he didn’t say it. Someone did though, and it’s understandable to anyone who’s ever visited the city by the bay. The neighborhoods near the ocean are almost always foggy and cold, but I don’t think I’ve ever been quite as surprised by the freezing winds as I was the sunny, warm day when my husband and I visited Fort Point. It was still sunny, but it wasn’t warm anymore.
I was born in San Francisco and still have a lot of family living in the city. Although my parents and I relocated to Los Angeles when I was a tot we have driven up the highway to see our native town every summer ever since. It’s a beautiful place and I feel blessed to be able to visit so often. There are many sites to see but we often head to our favorite parks and places. One of those is Crissy Field, and right near it, the Civil War era fort at the mouth of the bay where my husband and I took these photos.
