The Sutro Baths were built in the 1870s by a German engineer.
They were an architectural wonder of their times and seriously 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 different people. The remains of the Sutro Baths are owned these days by the National Park Service in CA. The place burnt down to the ground in the 1960’s in a mysterious manner… You can still see a good amount of the ruins and there are a number of diving areas that are not very far from the seawall. My wifey and I visited the Sutro Baths not long ago and we stopped at a recreational cannabis dispensary on our way to San Francisco. Because we were spending the day outside at the beach, it seemed like a perfect day to care about recreational cannabis! Recreational cannabis happens to be legal in the state of CA and San Francisco has a pretty good amount of recreational cannabis shops. It was not challenging to find anywhere close to the interstate, so we didn’t have to deviate far from our route. We actually picked out a couple of strange things to try that day, including some rather delicious edible cannabis treats that tasted exactly like peaches. They were pretty sweet with a little bit of tang. They tasted so much better than the vast majority of the gummy candy that you buy in the grocery store and it was not especially easy to tell that they were infused with cannabis. The day at the ruins was honestly filled with a lot of good memories and I’m ecstatic we made the choice to take a lot of pictures… After smoking a really good sized joint, I didn’t remember some of the activities in the day.
