Marina Vista to Benicia-Martinez bridge - Jan. 9, '11
Walking Time: 2 hrs., 28 min. (12:54 - 3:22 p.m.)
Start and End Point: Public parking lot, Martinez Regional Shoreline Park, Martinez, CA
Today I walked East on Marina Vista, from Downtown Historic Martinez toward the Benicia-Martinez bridge, along railroad tracks and past oil refining facilities.
I turned right at the light/intersection, onto Mococo, then caught the Bay Trail up to the bridge. I walked up to the point on the bridge where I'd left off previously (light pole #08051), and enjoyed the view. I walked back the same way along Marina Vista and stopped to visit the Martinez Historic Museum (free admission), before heading to the beaver dams.
1 mockingbird; 8 little brown jobs (LBJs); 15 crows; 1 pigeon; 3 hubcaps. (also there was 1 dead, headless deer by the railroad tracks).
