East Bayshore Road, Redwood City - Sept. 18, 2009

Walking Distance: ~1.6 miles (loop)
Walking Time: 30 minutes (10:10 - 10:40 a.m.)
Start & End Point: Parked along East Bayshore Road (small area of legal parking)

Today, I continued walking on East Bayshore Road toward the next segment of trails in Redwood City (toward the marina area). Along the way, I was careful to keep my eye on traffic and to stay on the edge of the road away from passing cars and trucks. Again, this is along an area where a trail does not yet exist (as indicated by gray dotted line in map above); and East Bayshore Road was the closest to what may become a trail in the future. Note: There are buildings in between East Bayshore Road and the Salt Ponds, so it is not possible to see the Bay along this route.

Wildlife Sightings: None. (I decided that two pet dogs being let out to do their business in a trailer park don't count.) One dead pigeon by the side of the road, on gravel and oleander blossoms, located several feet away from some memorial crosses spray-painted on the street.
