biked to the baths today. overcast but a good time nonetheless. this is only 15 min from my new place! not pictured: snax y boissons y comrade

sutro baths always make me feel a special something. a time forgotten, ravaged by the sea, but still here to remind us of what used to be. i know ppl used to throw shows in the tunnel here but ive never been to one

The search engine is called Lieu.
