Today we took the kids to Fort Funston, an old fort and beach in San Francisco. It’s very popular with hang-gliders, so while playing in the freezing cold waves was the main attraction, the kids also enjoyed watching hang-gliding up close.

I’d never been this close to them either, and was impressed at how long they could stay in the air.

The beach is at the bottom of a fairly steep trail, and it’s too dangerous to actually swim in the water; but that’s hardly unusual for beaches in this area. Unlike southern California, our beaches are mainly for walking along.
