On this first morning of the year 2019 I visited my father at his assisted living residence and then I took a walk at Marina Park in San Leandro.
Marina Park is located on the shoreline of San Francisco Bay. It is a nice place to walk because it offers excellent views of the bay’s bridges and the San Francisco skyline when the skies are clear.
The walking distance from the Marina Park parking lot to Faro Point and then back to the parking lot is 1.8 miles.
Marina Park can get crowded on weekends, especially when the weather is warm, so I usually do my walking there at sunrise when there’s almost nobody there.
