4.6 miles in Outer Sunset


This is the last chunk of the Outer Sunset I needed to walk.


And it was just as thrilling as I expected it to be.


Ooh! One of these things is not like the others.


So while the Outer Sunset is generally a sleepy suburban neighborhood, it does have a couple of points of interest. 
1: The Pacific Ocean.


2: A high incidence of schools.  This is Sunset Elementary.


I'm not sure what kind of a school this is.


And this is the really impressive campus of St. Ignatius.  http://www.siprep.org/

As a rule, schools with waterfalls are not cheap.

I'm not proud of this, but I had to go home and google 'natatorium.'  (It's a swimming pool.)



This is a really nice garden...


And this is a really sad mop.  Swiffer strikes again.  Dang it.

  1. people always bag on the Sunset, but it's really not as boring as people think it is. I think this + your inner sunset walk remind people that there's plenty to see on a nice day while walking !

    one of my favorite things to do on a sunny Saturday when I have no obligations is to just pick a direction and go walk, and keep on going until I feel like changing direction and then randomly picking another. I've had some pretty amazing ones, like the time I walked from UCSF to the Presidio with several detours...

  2. You're right, Greg - the Sunset is surprisingly entertaining for a suburb. Once I'm done following my maps to hit every street efficiently, I would love to just wander like that. How fun!
