Missed Segment on Arnold Dr., Sonoma - June 16, 2010
Walking Time: 10 min. (6:13 - 6:23 p.m.)
Start and End Point: Mission Drive, Temelec - Sonoma, CA
This tiny segment of Bay Trail map (at right) is not really helpful in describing where this make-up walk (of a missed segment) took place. These double yellow lines are meant to represent a stretch of Arnold Drive -- between Almeria Drive and Mission Drive.
Yesterday, I mistakenly saw a Temelec neighborhood sign (at Almeria Drive) and thought I had reached the point where I'd left off yesterday (Mission Drive). Both streets had the same Temelec signs facing Arnold Drive. Anyway, I walked north along Arnold Drive, and walked back/south on Temelec Circle.
The Temelec development looked like it had been planned, perhaps in the 1950s or 1960s. It included different types of housing units. It looked peaceful, and in some ways frozen in time. Where I live, older houses from this era are being made-over and ripped down, being replaced by multi-story, high-density housing. While there are crows and squirrels in the suburbs where I live, lizards and many other wildlife species have vanished.
