Foster City - Feb. 5, '12

Walking Distance: 2.5 miles
Walking Time: 1 hr., 59 min. (9:47 - 11:46 a.m.)
Start and End Point: Street parking spot, in front of 1845 Beach Park Blvd., Foster City, CA

I walked south along the combined bicycle/pedestrian paved (asphalt) path -- occasionally taking the dirt/shell path closer to the bay. It was soothing to hear the sound of small waves lapping against a small strip of beach. I turned around at the intersection of Swordfish St. and Beach Park Blvd. (school site, where I left off last time).

On the way back, I crossed Beach Park Blvd. and walked around a shopping center, visiting Thai, Chinese, and Ramen restaurants. I then walked across Beach Park Blvd. again, and I continued along the levee trail/path until I reached my car.

I passed at least one kayak/board-surfer ramp access point. The area from Coyote Point (to the north) down to San Mateo bridge is a popular gusty spot for kite surfers.

Wildlife Sightings:
60 sea gulls; 2 little brown jobs (LBJs); 7 crows; 25 pigeons; 2 feral cats (looked related); 1 brown pelican; 50 willets; 60 medium sized unidentified brownish shorebirds (mixed); 2 UFO grebes/divers; 23 ducks; 22 Canada geese; 3 Western/Clarks grebes; 1 (tennis) ball
