Marshall’s Beach in San Francisco is a great place for a sunny afternoon within easy reach of downtown; you can be naked there and enjoy one of the best views of the Golden Gate Bridge.
That’s where Tam and I headed after Burning Man last year; in the wake of spending more than a week in a dusty desert, we were clearly drawn to large bodies of water (and it doesn’t get any larger than the Pacific Ocean).
We could have been just chilling on the beach, but we thought we’d rather have another session of acro-yoga, as I didn’t get enough of it during the festival, because I was mostly taking pictures of it.
We kicked off with the ‘front bird’,
and then moved on to more complicated poses.
Tam was keen on practicing ‘basing’ with hands,
and it worked out pretty well.
The iconic Golden Gate Bridge surely provided a perfect backdrop for the photos.
To me personally, it was also a bit ironic to do it by the symbol of San Francisco, because the very first time I tried acro-yoga was also naked, in the Golden Gate park of San Francisco, for which we ended up getting fines, even though it was before nudity became outlawed in the city.
And as pretty much any beach on the West Coast, Marshall’s Beach is poised to have a stunning sunset!
