I’ve always wondered if “Indian Summer” was politically correct to say or not. Only someone from San Francisco would wonder this really. Summers in San Francisco are an interesting thing. Unlike the rest of the country where summers are from the end of May to August, in San Francisco, it’s really from August to November. So the “Indian Summer” is really just our normal summer season. San Francisco has some weird weather anyway, but it was nice not having to bring light layers like you normally have to.
A friend and I decided to go hiking around the cliffs near Ocean Beach for fun over the weekend. The ruins from the Sutro Baths are still around there below the Cliff House and I haven’t been there since college (and she’s never been there before), so we took the opportunity to take a little adventure around it especially since it was a nice 80 degrees and there was a nice sea breeze in the microclimate by the ruins. I kept the outfit simple for the hike; I only wore chino shorts and a 3/4 sleeve t-shirts from H&M so I would be comfortable. A simple pair of espadrille shoes from ASOS made it easy to slip on and off when walking on the sandy terrain and building remains. I wore a 3-chained cross necklace from Guess because it looked great against the boat-necked collar of the shirt.
Side note – I have the worse balance ever (even when sober) and so standing on those platforms was a real struggle. I almost fell into the water so many times.
