Last Sunday (4/14/13) Mme Le Chef and I went out to Ocean Beach where an amazingly strong wind was attempting to blow the beach into the parking lot. You couldn't get out of the car without being sand blasted so we decamped and went up to nearby Sutro Heights where it was still ridiculously windy but we were above the airborne sand. You can see a long ways down the coast from the top of the hill.
We also had a birds-eye view of an intrepid (clearly deranged) wind surfer below us. Please click.
We actually had a higher than birds-eye view.
In honor of Otis Redding we watched a ship roll in.
And keep on rolling.
