"Guys, do you want to see Baker Beach?"
"Like in the Princess Diaries?"
This is the actual conversation that led us to Baker Beach, late in the afternoon on our second day in San Francisco. The water was far to cold even stick our feet into, but that didn't keep my friends from running into the bay and coming out with numb toes. We were fortunate enough to get to the beach shortly before sunset so we could watch the sun set behind the coast, which, as someone who has lived on the East Coast all my life, I've never been able to see.
