Downtown Historic Sonoma - June 16, 2010

Walking Distance: .6 mile
Walking Time: 58 min. (8:00 - 8:58 p.m.)
Start and End Point: on street parking, near Sonona Historic square and theater, Sonoma, CA

Technically, the Bay Trail does not extend all the way up to the historic downtown portion of Sonoma, but I decided to make an extension trip. After my brush with farm dogs on Arnold Drive earlier this evening, I decided to treat myself to some relaxing time in downtown historic Sonoma.

It was a beautiful warm night, a perfect time to stroll around Sonoma Historic Plaza and through the Park, and to see Mission Sonoma. Although the Mission had closed for the evening, there was a very photogenic cactus in bloom in front.  

Wildlife Sightings:
Pretend cows at "The Chocolate Cow"; white ducks in the park and the pond; and a possible bat flying over at dusk.
