Seaport #4, Redwood City - Sept. 23, 2009
In two segments...
1.) Path behind Pacific Shores Center, along the Bay
Walking Distance: ~1.75 miles
Walking Time: 44 minutes (4:08 - 4:52 p.m.)
Start & End Point: Public parking lot, near Pacific Shores Center, Redwood City, CA
This very nice walkway had benches, landscaping, nice bay views, and a wildlife identification sculptural display. This dog-friendly trail also had dog waste stations.
Wildlife Sightings: 5 lizards along the paved pathway; and 2 friendly Burmese Mountain Dogs, Piper and Taiko.
2.) Seaport Court
Walking Distance: 15 minutes (6:10 - 6:25 p.m.)
Walking Time: .7 mile
Start & End Point: Parking lot, Bella By the Bay Restaurant
I enjoyed a blackened snapper dinner at Bella. I was seated by the window with a great view of boats going to and fro outside on the Bay. After dinner, I walked as far up and down as I could along this stretch of Bay, past a public fishing pier, and marina.
Wildlife Sightings: 48 pigeons, 17 crows, 5 LBJs, 5 ducks, 1 coot, 1 godwit
Note: The pigeons and crows were munching on birdseed in a back parking lot, near a sign that said: "Do Not Feed Birds."
