Interesting. I've hiked once in the Marin Headlands area, but haven't come across this spot yet. While it's windy and cold, I do love sitting out at Ocean Beach and just listening to the relaxing waves. But it's not social anxiety without a reason. I've tried e-mailing a social anxiety group that was suggested from here or somewhere else (don't remember now) and never got a response. If you're going to do this again, let me know. If anything, I think it would be easier to meet up with someone else who has SAS or AvPD since we both know where we are coming from and it wouldn't be so awkward.
