Redwood Shores - Twin Dolphin Dr. - Oct. 10, 2009

Walking Distance: 3.36 miles
Walking Time: 1 hour, 26 min. (12:27 - 1:53 p.m.)
Start & End Point: Island Park, across street from Oracle headquarters, by Highway 101

I almost skipped the Twin Dolphin Drive part of the trail, as this street appeared to be lined with office parks and not very much water or Bay; however there was a nice lagoon with some bird life, and some picturesque views.

Wildlife Sightings: 1 cormorant; 4 little brown jobs (LBJs) + 1 mockingbird; 1 sea gull; 30 Canada geese; 9 ducks in lagoon; 1 coot in lagoon; 22 crows; 5 skippers; 1 dragonfly; and 4 little brown birds in lagoon going under water for long periods (that looked like miniature cormorants).
