Warm Water Cove Park - Agua Vista Park - Dec. 3, 2009
Walking Distance: 1.9 miles
Walking Time: 1 hr., 19 min. (2:35 - 3:54 p.m.)
Start & End Point: End of 25th Street, street parking
More city streets today, with a few peeks of Bay. From my parking spot at the end of 25th Street, I walked North, on Illinois Street (shown as double yellow lines on map), stopping at Warm Water
Cove Park to take a few pictures (my first view of some Bay). I also took a short detour up to 3rd St. to Sundance Coffee, for an iced tea to go.
I passed some new large commercial buildings around 17th/16th Sts., as yet unoccupied. My turn-around point was 16th St. (just North of Agua Vista Park/fishing pier).
On my walk back down Illinois, I passed some old, grand, but decrepit-looking abandoned buildings, and the Potrero Power plant.
9 sea gulls; 21 little brown jobs (LBJs)/songbirds; 6 pigeons;
7 tiny unidentified brownish shorebirds; 15 ducks; 1 rusty screw;
and 2 cats w/ owner on sidewalk in front of live-in camper; and assorted urban detritus (a few single gloves, discarded pair of red flip flops, etc.)
