Paradise Dr., (cont.), Tiburon - Feb. 3, 2010

Walking Distance: 4.5 miles
Walking Time: 2 hrs., 21 min. (3:00 - 5:30 p.m. - less 9 min. driving)
Start and End Point(s): Three different spots along Paradise Drive, Tiburon, CA

Great scenery, but watch your step around those blind corners, and steep drop-offs where there is no shoulder on the road.

I started my walk today near the Roadroad and Ferry Depot Museum, and stopped at the Lyford Stone Tower (an historic monument). A view

from inside the tower is pictured at right.  Further up/north along Paradise Drive, there were beautiful views of Keil Cove and the rest of the Bay in between and behind trees, houses and flowers.

Other than the occasional car and bicycles, it was very peaceful and quiet....just the occasional sound of some run-off water (from recent rains), and the faint sound of waves lapping against the shore below. Very nice.

Wildlife Sightings:
72 sea gulls; 2 cormorants; 3 brown pelicans; 2 little brown jobs (LBJs); and 3 crows
