Crissy Field - Ft. Point, S.F. - Dec. 26, 2009

Walking Distance: 3.21+ miles
Walking Time: 4 hrs., 28 min. (12:20 - 4:48 p.m.)
Start & End Point: Crissy Field, in San Francisco, CA

Today Alec joined me on my walk. We walked NW along the beaches with the dogs running free, stopped and had lunch at the Warming Hut, and proceeded to Fort Point. Old cannon balls, and cannons can still be seen. We walked through, into, and on top of the old Fort -- watching surfers riding waves sweeping into the Bay through Golden Gate Bridge, along the way.

On the way back, we walked a slightly different route, up to the new Disney Family Museum in the Presidio, and along the other side of Crissy field - what once was an old airstrip. By the time was exited the Museum, it was raining, and we got somewhat soaked on the way back to the Crissy Field parking area, despite having umbrellas. Ah well, this was the first time I've been rained on during this Bay walk, and it probably won't be the last.

Wildlife Sightings:
12 sea gulls; 8 little brown jobs (LBJs); 1 pigeon; lots of dogs on trails, beach; 22 ducks; 1 unidentified brownish shorebirds; 2 crows; 1 Loon?; 4 little/micro shorebirds (snowy plovers? sanderlings? peeps?); 1 (tennis) ball + 1 ball on a stick; 1 cormorant; and 11 pelicans.
