Allison Walks – Fort Funston

The magic mailbox
The one fun thing to see out on Skyline Boulevard at the entrance of the park is the mailbox. I find it incredibly curious. Who receives mail in this box? Does anyone know its story? Does it send messages back in time? Until someone clarifies for me, I’m going to continue believing that it is indeed a magical mailbox.
Hi. My name is Allison and I am a recent transplant from the Florida Keys, a chain of tiny islands that has one main, stick-straight road, and the impossibility of getting lost. After moving to San Francisco in 2008 and getting lost for the umpteenth time, I made it a goal to walk every street to get my bearings in this hilly, twisted town. After 18 months of steady plodding, I’m more than 500 miles into the journey. To keep track of where I’ve been, I keep a blog, allisonwalkssf.com.
Editor’s Note: Allison Walks will be taking a break for a few months. It’s been a pleasure to follow Allison’s explorations of the Ocean Beach area over the past 10 months, and we look forward to her return in the future.
