Hello. My name is Lauren.

These photos were from July.
Here's a little history on Sutro if you've never been there/never heard of it.

The Sutro Baths were a large privately owned swimming pool complex in San Francisco, California built in the late 19th century. The building housing the baths burned down in 1966 and was abandoned. The ruins may still be visited.

Oh my goodness :]
I grew up around here and I totally forgot that these even existed until just now. I used to go here all the time! ^___^
Lovely pictures, you made my day! <3

AH, I'm so jealous. The area is really amazing. Especially on that particular day, it was pretty foggy throughout. Even more so when I went to Sutro Heights.

Haha, I'm glad I did!

I'd like to go back as soon as I can. There were a lot of little nooks and crannies that I couldn't get to at the time. :(

I used to love going to Sutro Baths and the general Cliffhouse area. Did you know the whole area is supposed to be cursed? :3

I did! I only found it out when I went there.
Especially the cave area. It's said that lots of people used to go in there during the 60s to do like, black magic what nots or something. I don't know the whole thing word for word. It makes me want to go abck though!

I've gotten drunk there a few times. It's a nice spot.

I think it's inevitable that nearly every man in San Francisco has pissed in that cave from drinking. I know a few of my friends have. Hahaa

Oh my!
I grew up in the area; went to the baths as a kid with my mum and dad. How quickly we forget!
Thanks for a walk down memory lane. :)
