Walking Distance: 2.82 miles
Walking Time: 2 hrs., 32 min. (2:23 - 4:55 p.m.)
Start and End Point: West of Fort Mason, Yacht Harbor area, San Francisco, CA

Today's amble was along the Marina area of San Francisco, past the Yacht Harbor, and into Crissy Field and beach. A stroll out to the end of the jetty (wave organ), yielded more good views of Alcatraz, and boats going by. Dogs on the beach at far end of walk were fun to watch.

Wildlife Sightings:
25 starlings; 9 songbirds and little brown jobs (LBJs); 49 pigeons; 44 sea gulls; 2 Western grebes; 2 unidentified brownish shorebirds; 1 cormorant; 3 tiny shorebirds; 4 ducks (1 Bufflehead); 1 great blue heron; 1 Kingfisher; 1 unlucky starfish (see image with sea gull); and lots of dogs running around on the beach.
