Additional Details:
Where Golden Gate Park comes out upon the Great Highway and Beach Esplanade, one finds the Beach Chalet - the sloop "Gjoa" and an Old Dutch Windmill. The latter pumps water for Park irrigation and is the largest windmill in the world. The Beach Chalet is a restaurant operated by the City where dining is an inexpensive treat, either for lunch, tea or diner. If at Sunset Times, you view a magnificent never to be forgotten sight of the sun sinking into the Pacific Ocean. he "Gjoa", his toric vessel which Capt. Amundsen used in navigating the Northwest passage in 1908 is now beached in a hollow, having been presented to the City by the Captain on behalf of Norway.
