Start & End Point: Public Parking lot/space, San Bruno Point, South San Francisco, CA
Another beautiful day. I walked today with my friend Sandy, and we discovered, as we walked south from San Bruno Point parking lot -- expecting to hit a dead end, that the dotted line (gap) shown on the Bay Trail map (south of San Bruno Pt.) was now a walkable path/trail. So, we headed south (toward the San Francisco airport); occasionally peered down at clumps of shorebirds embedded in the short grass and mud/sand by the water; and enjoyed the sun. We stopped at a bridge not far from Belle Air Rd. and Airport Blvd., turned around and headed north back to San Bruno Point.
12 ducks; 27 sea gulls; 3 coots or large grebes; 40 little brown jobs (LBJs); 140 unidentified brownish shorebirds (small, medium & large); 4 willets; 1 dragonfly; 1 crow; 1 snowy egret; 3 Western grebes; 1 brown pelican
