Let’s call this place 50 Halleck, 94111.
Hurray. Hurray for Halleck!
The Thing About San Francisco’s Lands End is That It’s Basically One Giant Landslide Waiting to HappenWednesday, December 24th, 2014
Take a look here, from about a week ago, from a time just before the recent mini-slides shut the place down for the next ten days:
Imagine the trail before the big slide of long ago. Imagine a flat road connecting the foreground to the background hundreds of feet away – that’s what used to be there before, but now the trail goes up and around this location.
Lands End is just like Devil’s Slide.
It’s a tough place to maintain a road…
I took my love and took it down
I climbed a mountain and I turned around
And I saw my reflection in the mud-covered hills
‘Til the landslide brought me down
The answer is no, no you’re not.
Hey, look at this gal on Fell near Divis – she doesn’t care about a little rain:
Is cycling ever going to be “comfortable?”

That’s my guess:
Is it like this one?
The Evanescent Tide Pools of Ocean Beach Allow Visitors to Get Their Feet Wet Near the Cliff House Without the Risk of DrowningThursday, July 3rd, 2014

I’m calling this a tide pool even though it’s not rocky in there at all.
Anyway, these little lakes can be very long and very shallow – the perfect recipe for warm water at Ocean Beach:

Many many people drown at Ocean Beach due to the riptide and the cold cold, water. If you want to just get your feet wet at the beach, wanting for this kind of pool is the safer way to go.
The Languid, Sexy Baseball Furies of Fulton Street: Physical Graffiti at Barrel Head Brewhouse Near MasonicTuesday, July 1st, 2014
But now she’s all like this, taken off of the street and placed indoors upstairs at the Brewhouse.
Note that the formerly-censored(?) bloodied bat has been restored. (That’s what makes her a Fury, IMO.)
Imagine that – the journey from street crime to high art took merely a half-year…
This San Francisco Taxi Cab “Knows” That It’s Raining, So Why Aren’t Its Headlights On Per California Law?Wednesday, March 5th, 2014
Seems that this would be easy to wire up, you know, wipers on = headlights on.
(My aging Toyota has Daytime Running Lights but they don’t cut the mustard in CA when it’s raining.)
Anyway, just asking, beleaguered SF cab industry…

This is what it looks like, in the middle of the Panhandle halfway betwixt Fell and Oak, sometimes, when Park Station goes on we-own-the-night Dawn Patrol:

SFPD Crown Vic radio cars do OK driving on the grass, until it gets too muddy in there.
Look out, sleepy hippies!
