Baker Beach
Guess what I found at the beach? No, not some shells or a crab, try a 95,000 pound cannon! Baker Beach is part of the Presidio, an old military base dating back to 1776. The World War II era bunkers and a replica defensive cannon are still present. Just as well it's only a replica, anyone can walk up and climb all over it if they wish to.

era n. 紀年;時代
bunker n. 大倉庫, 【軍】地堡
replica n. 臨摹之畫;仿彫之像

Baker Beach
Baker Beach sure is beautiful. It has an amazing view of the Golden Gate Bridge, the Marin Headlands and Lands End. The water does look a little treacherous though. Apparently there are large waves, a bad undertow and rip currents. It's also much too cold to swim in. Regardless, you sure can't beat this location for a great day of sun tanning on the sand.
