I had taken this walking trail before but I don't remember seeing many birds here, only now. Hence I was surprise there is a marshland/mudflats here. With the help of Mr. Wikipedia I found out this information about it:
Hoffman Marsh is a wetlands on San Francisco Bay in Richmond, California. The marsh has been protected within Eastshore State Park, and adjacent to Point Isabel Regional Shoreline. The marsh is an important nesting ground for wildfowl and stopping ground on the Pacific Flyway, as it is one of only a handful of undestroyed wetlands in the Bay Area. It borders Point Isabel Regional Shoreline and Interstate 80.
Hoffman Marsh is the delta for the mouth of Fluvius Innominatus creek into the Hoffman Channel, which lead to San Francisco Bay. The channel is part of Point Isabel Regional Shoreline, the "largest dog park in the United States", and serves as a swimming area for the animals. Hoffman Channel is adjacent to Point Isabel promontory, and was formerly a sandy beach on its south shore.
Since we went there to photograph and walk, we did a lot of both.
Welcome temporary artwork welcomes walkers, bikers, etc.
Marsh next to Interstate 580.
Brave kitty or stupid kitty in dog park. On the other hand, there's plenty of birdies on this side of the trail.
She was tired and asked for 5 more minutes to rest before she and her bff could go back on the trail.
This one loved the water.
This is my entry to this week's OUR WORLD TUESDAY.
