At Frisco Vista I’ve told the story of the Belgum Sanitarium, which was located in Wildcat Canyon above Richmond on the San Francisco Bay. It’s a romantic little narrative, a bit like something out of Lafcadio Hearn. Usually I save references to my posts elsewhere for my end-of-month roundups, but I hope that some of my rightreading readers might enjoy this melancholy little tale.

  1. I did enjoy it and thought it would have made a great location for a tale told by Raymond Chandler. Or a great location for a picnic. Or maybe both.

  2. Thanks, Nancy
