What happens when I have a few hours during the weekend and nothing is penciled in? Well, why not go for a short walk by the water. I am lucky to be living where a handful of regional parks are within a few minutes drive away.
On this day the choice was Eckley Pier, which is located in the Carquinez Strait Regional Shoreline. The topography of this park consists of rolling hills, wooded ravines, eucalyptus-shaded meadows and river shoreline. We usually only go by the pier.
The city across the bridge is Vallejo - which has a sizeable Filipino community.
Popular fishing spot.
Sometimes it pays to be without plans on the weekend. You get to revisit parks nearby.
BTW, I always make sure I carry my small point and shoot when I go out on the weekend, even if I'm only going to the grocery store.
