Seal rock which is displayed in the above photo was the original hang out for the sea lions who have since taken up residence at Pier 39. The rocks are located on the northwest shore of ocean beach right below the cliff house. The steep and rocky cliffs along with the smooth sandy makeup at ocean beach are a result of hundreds of years of shifting sand, wind and waves.
In order to get to these rocks and the one shown in the photo above you need to get down that steep slope I was talking about in my post yesterday. I watched while some woman had mastered that slope and walked out to the rock to have her photo taken. I was jealous :) I will one of these days get down there to that rock and when I do, you, my readers will be the first to see the photos. For now though, enjoy the scene from a distance.
The photo below displays the Cliff House at a distance with the old Sutro Baths location to the left and ocean beach with that rock I want to get up close and personal with to the right. If you look closely on the left of the photo you will see someone walking that narrow path. That is where I need to be in order to walk out to Seal Rock. It's getting to that path which is difficult but I promise you I will get there one of these days. Enjoy the views.
