Sutro Baths

Today Anil and I went for a short hike to the Sutro Baths, ruins of a large, privately owned swimming pool complex built in the late 19th century. In 1966 the building housing the baths burned down and has never been rebuilt, which is a pity, as I would definitely not mind taking a bath in the swimming pool located in such spectacular location.

It was a foggy day, which only added charm to the ruins:

Next to the ruins there is a cool and a bit spooky tunnel, in which the sounds of the waves  crashing on the rocks is multiplied several fold:
