a closer view of the expensive San Francisco neighborhood - above Baker Beach
One of my favorite treats around the times of the New and Full Moons each month - is that we get extreme tides. At low tide during these periods - it is possible to walk from Baker to China Beach (around that granite promontory at right) without even getting your feet too wet. It is a fabulous experience!
>>> Disclaimer - Important - Read this before attempting this walk:
The sea can be dangerous and tidal rips are common along all northern California beaches. Keep an eye out on the water at all times. Rouge waves can develop that are suddenly larger than the waves that have been coming in. Know the tide charts for the Golden Gate and end your walk before the tide changes - otherwise you can become cut-off from getting back and it is a very long walk around. Do not attempt this walk during times of storm or when large waves are forecast.
