Walking Time: 1 hr., 18 min. (7:35 - 8:53 p.m.)
Start and End Point: Parking lot, near Costco gas station, off Hesperian Blvd., Hayward, CA
This evening I walked South on the sidewalk along Hesperian Blvd. (shown as double red lines on the Bay Trail Map) which soon turned into Union City Blvd. - past the Pepsi (San Francisco Bay Distribution/Production Center); the Alden E. Oliver Sports Park; Kaiser Union City; and other various businesses. While traffic was moving quickly down these streets, the generous sidewalk allows a comfortable separation between pedestrian and car/vehicle traffic.
I turned around at intersection of Union City Blvd. and Smith Street/Cambridge Way, a little past Alvarado Square.
5 sea gulls; 3 (brown) snails; 1 blur in bushes (BIB); 9 Canada geese (including 2 younger ones); 2 ducks; (bees on lavender bushes on Kaiser property); 4 doves; 2 ladybugs (w/ aphids on * weed); ants (uncountable in 1 large spot); 1 ball.
