We’re continuing our journey westward, toward the ocean, and we’re getting close now. Less than a mile to go. We cross over Chain of Lakes Drive. And as we pass, just to our right is the simply named North Lake. We’re walking through this urban forest, and the trees have gotten especially thick to our right. Look closely and you can see … there’s a golf course in there! A lot of people who live in San Francisco don’t even know that. But we’re not here to play golf, today. We’re targeting a different sport. Just past the course’s parking lot, on 47th Avenue, a couple blocks from the beach, we’ve arrived at our destination. Luisa Cardoza is here to tell us all about it.
