Burlingame, Day 2 - Nov. 3, 2009
Walking Distance: 1.83 miles
Walking Time: 1 hour, 10 minutes (4:10 - 5:20 p.m.)
Start & End Point: Public Parking Lot by Anza Lagoon & Robert E. Woolley State Park, Burlingame, CA
I finished walking the two loops that are part of the Burlingame segment of the Bay Trail. The smallest loop is the walk around Anza Lagoon which is ringed by hotels, restaurants and office buildings, but still remains quiet and peaceful given the ample buffer space around the lagoon. The (lower portion of the) larger loop is made up of Airport Boulevard which is linked at both ends to the Bay Trail that fronts the Bay.
The weather was warm and beautiful. In the absence of wind, the water was very calm, and was bathed in pastel colors at sunset.
I watched two fishermen whose cell phones kept ringing.
(Does this scare the fish?)
16 sea gulls; 5 little brown jobs (LBJs); 2 feral cats; 5 crows; 11 unidentified brownish shorebirds; 34 ducks; 2 snowy egrets; and 21 Willets
