Scenes of the City: China Beach

For this week's Scenes of the City we headed out to China Beach, a small cove in San Francisco's Sea Cliff neighborhood.This perfect pocket of sand features a picnic area, ample room for sunbathing, and on a clear day, great views of the Marin Headlands and Golden Gate Bridge.
