7.4 miles in Outer Richmond



I took a great walk through the Outer Richmond on Saturday morning.  The weather was great, the sun was shining and the neighborhood was quiet.  Oh, yeah, and it borders Ocean Beach.  Love it.



The housing in this neighborhood: typical with a capital TY.



But, there were a few stand outs.  I think this house is soooo cute! Where are the two cats in the yard?



Great use of an orange door.



Balboa Street runs through the middle of this neighborhood and is lined with storefronts... 




...some surprisingly niche storefronts, at that.  (This one is for my husband who loves hockey.)




And this one is for my sister-in-law who wants to take fencing lessons.




I've never had Egyptian food before and really want to try it.  The menu looks relatively celiac-friendly.  Any advice on how to spot gluten on this menu?

 

Would you like your scoop of irony in a cup or a cone?




I'm so tired of watching movies in megaplexes.  I really want to see a movie in one of these older theaters.  Looks like fun.  Oh, I did see Sherlock Holmes and give it a big thumbs up.  It's Complicated, on the other hand, looks like a big litter pan.  Just my opinion...




It's kinda fun to spot the altered street signs in this neighborhood.




This one is kinda hard to see in the picture, but there is a sticker reading "invisible" over the 33.  Someone explain, please.



Okay, now the best part of this neighborhood is that it borders the Pacific Ocean.  Turn around, arrow! You're pointing the wrong way.  The awesomeness is the other direction!



The neighborhood also abuts the famous Golden Gate Park to its south. 



The park is huge and a walk in itself so this is just a sneak peak of a future entry.



For now, I'll leave you with this great view of Ocean Beach.

  2. Sorry, Christine! I accidently deleted your comment. Well...in response, I wanted to let you know that I made reservations for the Egyptian restaurant and will let you know how it goes. Can't wait to see the belly dancers!
