Sausalito - Mill Valley - Jan. 10, 2010

Walking Distance: 5.8 miles
Walking Time: 3 hrs., 37 min.
Start and End Point(s):
1.) Near Gate 6, Marina area, Sausalito, CA (2:54 - 4:32 p.m.)
2.) Public Shore Parking spot, Mill Valley, CA (4:44 - 6:13 p.m.)

Today was a big mileage day, and I finished walking well after dark.
And even though the birds in the Richardson Bay, Bothin Marsh area,
became more difficult to see, I enjoyed seeing lights on the water and
on and under the freeway underpass. This was an area of nicely
developed trail, which made walking in the dark much more
enjoyable than the unimproved city streets or pathways.

Wildlife Sightings:
6 little brown jobs (LBJs); 18 pigeons; 6 crows;
76 sea gulls; 2 snowy egrets; 2 great egrets; 21 ducks;
10 unidentified brownish shorebirds; 1 great blue heron;
12 American avocets; and 24 Canada geese
