If you drive west in San Francisco you eventually end up where the land ends. Appropriately name Lands End is a required stop when I'm here. On Monday I had a red-eye back flight home and so that afforded me the perfect opportunity to spend a couple of hours here before heading to the airport. I am so glad I did.
Staying in the heart of the city its easy to get disconnected from nature and the beauty that surrounds this part of California. I was feeling a little bit of that when I arrived. But as soon as I parked the hum of the city fell away and I was in a different world. Standing along the shore whales could be seen at the mouth of the bay, a common occurrence.
I almost didn't recognize the scene because last time I was here you could walk out to the rock on the left. The tide had transformed the shore. Also I don't remember the green covering on all the rocks, perhaps that's seasonal. In any case, it goes to show that new things appear each time you revisit a location like this, especially when mother nature is involved.
I took a tonne of photos and when I was done the sun had set and the sky turned dark. The city was completely washed away from my mind. Next stop the airport and the flight home.
