I love that image of those Outer Sunset homes standing their ground and staring down those 25 – 30 foot waves.
Not only is The Outer Sunset built on sand dunes and the San Andreas fault line… which is really not that great a combination when you think about it.
Not only is The Outer Sunset on some days pretty much a tropical rainforest ecosystem….everyone is all “Save the Rainforest! Save the Rainforest!” OK. Try living in a tropical rainforest kind of neighborhood where you have to bleach the walls on a regular basis to kill the mold and the fog is eating your car alive every night. There are days that the news is all about “Watch out for that heat-wave that’s scorching the Bay Area” and I look outside my window and all I can see is Jack the Ripper era London fog.
Not only that, but we also have the threat of Tsunamis. Right here in San Francisco.
So in case there’s a Tsunami you want to run in this direction.
Hint, it’s in the direction directly opposite from the beach.
I love this sign too.
Because it’s San Francisco everyone looks like they are safe.
Now if this were San Diego the adult stick figures would be making a mad dash to the top and in the process dislocating the child’s arm.
I love this neighborhood.
