Union City Blvd. - June 21, 2011

Walking Distance: 5.0 miles
Walking Time: 2 hrs.,17 min. (6:28 - 8:45 p.m.)
Start and End Point: Street parking spot on Silvertide Dr., next to intersection with Union City Blvd., Union City, CA

This evening I continued walking South along Union City Blvd. (shown as double yellow lines on Bay Trail Map).

I turned right on Eastin Dr. - and right again to follow the road into Alameda Creek Trail parking lot -- very close to the Union City - Fremont border. I then turned around to walk back. I walked north back toward my car, with a stop to photograph a group of cows (and one feisty bull) and some goats behind a fence. I also stopped to change shoes when I passed my car. Then I continued to Smith St., taking a slight detour to investigate an old church, then returned back to Union City Blvd., and back to the car.

Wildlife Sightings:
1 great egret; Ants - uncountable; 1 crow; 10 sea gulls; another smaller spot of ants - uncountable; 2 pigeons; 2 bumblebees; 16 cows; 3 goats; 6 ducks; 7 birds hanging out by cows/goats (bigger than LBJs, starlings?); 3 Canada geese; 1 basketball; 3 black-crowned night herons; 2 little brown jobs (LBJs)
