Sausalito - Jan. 9, 2010

Walking Distance: 3.57 miles
Walking Time: 2 hr., 55 min. (between 2:32 - 5:40 p.m.)
1.) 1 hr., 48 min. (2:32 - 4:20 p.m.) street parking, Pine and Bonita
2.) 39 min. (4:23 - 5:02 p.m.) Bay Model parking lot
3.) 28 min. (5:12 - 5:40 p.m.) street parking, along Bridgewater

I was hoping to make it to the Bay Model today, but the building and exhibits closed at 4 p.m. I will have to try again at a later date. I did pass a few marinas, stopped at the small, but interesting Sausalito historical museum, and at the Cibo cafe for a pistachio macaron. I also enjoyed watching a sculptor building free-standing rock sculptures that seemed to defy gravity (see image for two examples). And speaking of sculptures, the two stone elephants (one pictured), near the Ferry boat area, are a classic Sausalito landmark.

Wildlife Sightings:
15 crows; 61 pigeons; 4 Western grebes; 42 little brown jobs (LBJs); 44 sea gulls; 7 cormorants; 2 brown pelicans; and dogs in Dunphy Park
