Most of this route was following city streets (shown as double yellow lines on the Bay Trail map). However, it was nice to visit a small park, among the restaurants and light industrial/commercial businesses in the area. And, in addition to some fun painted signs (see octopus, shown at right), crowded in a small spot by the bridge/overcrossing (Grand), there was what looked like a little sea scout outpost. No scouts to be seen though.
13 pigeons; 3 crows; 1 rusty screw; 1 abandoned chair near water; 3 turkey vultures; 1 hubcap; 1 duck; 1 cormorant gobbling a fish; 2 little brown jobs (LBJs); and 17 sea gulls, including 3 sea gulls with impossibly bright white outlines against a very blue sky
