The closest I came to seeing the Bay walking this commercial and residential stretch of Bellam Blvd. between Catalina Blvd. and Andersen Drive (double yellow lines on map shown) was some water in a concrete streambed going under the road.
However, there are a few hardy birds (often crows or pigeons) that seem to make a living in urban areas; and there are always interesting signs, or odd surprises to photograph -- such as a zebra on a muffler shop sign.
