Cliff House #1 - September 5, 2007

There has been a Cliff House at Land's End in San Francisco since 1863. There is some debate over whether the present structure, shown here not too long after it opened in 1909, is the third or the fourth building. It was recently renovated and I don't care for what the Golden Gate National Recreation Area did with it. The front is almost blank. The inside is unattractive.

When I lived in the city, I used to love to walk out to the Cliff House, especially on extra-foggy days.

yes, they've RUINED it!
i used to love sitting in the bar with a novel and a martini, alternately ocean-watching, people-watching and reading. the only others there were tourists waiting for a seat in the restaurant.
i miss those days....
