The Sutro Baths were built in the 1870s by a German engineer! They were an architectural wonder of their times and truly popular with people in the San Francisco area.
- There was once an ice rink, museum, and bleacher seating in the arena for more than 3,000 spectators.
The remains of the Sutro Baths are owned these days by the National Park Service in California. The location mysteriously was burned down to the ground in the 1960’s. Of course, you can still see much of the ruins and there are a number of diving areas near the seawall. My wifey and I visited the Sutro Baths a few weeks back and we stopped at a recreational cannabis dispensary on our way to San Francisco. Since we were spending the day outside at the beach, it seemed basically like the perfect day to enjoy some recreational cannabis. Recreational cannabis is legal in the entire state and San Francisco has a sizable amount of recreational cannabis shops! It was relatively easy to find somewhere close to the interstate, so we did not have to deviate far from our route! We picked out a few weird things to try that day, including some really enjoyable edible cannabis treats that tasted something like peaches. They were kind of sweet with a little bit of tang. They tasted better than most of the gummy candy that you actually purchase in the grocery store and it was not especially easy to tell that they were infused with cannabis. The day at the ruins was filled with a good amount of superb memories and I’m blissful we decided to take a bunch of pictures. After smoking a good sized joint, I did not remember some of the day’s activities.
