The Bay Model: January 19, 2010

Walking Distance: N/A
Walking Time: approx. 2 hours in Bay Model
Start and End Point: Bay Model Parking Lot, 2100 Bridgeway,
Sausalito, CA

Today, I walked around the entire San Francisco Bay in one
afternoon -- at the Bay Model that is.

Earlier this month, I tried to visit the (US Army Corps of Engineers) Bay Model on my walk through Sausalito; but it was closed. Today we finally made it inside, and the Bay Model was -- as most people apparently say -- bigger than we expected. It encompasses the South Bay, Central Bay, San Pablo Bay, Suisan Bay, parts of the Delta and more. The idea for this model got its start back in the 1950s. Today, computer modeling has replaced the need for physical research models like this, but I doubt a desktop computer screen can convey this kind of scope. Thanks to Alec for joining me today.

After our walk through the Model, we drove north toward Tiburon,
to scout out the next few walking segments. Due to rain, there was
no walking today.

Wildlife Sightings:
No wildlife today, except likenesses captured in short films, photographs, wall murals and other items.
