Walking along the bay

Last week the smell of oil stained the air by the rail tracks at Gilman. We wanted to see if the effects of the oil spill were visible at Caesar Chavez Park and the marina. Also, it was a gorgeous day, like New England fall weather: bright and sunny with a nip to the wind. Enjoy a short slide show and video of some of what we saw. Towards the end of our walk along the bay this afternoon, the sound of the waves against the rocks reminded me of the Otis Redding classic (Sittin' On) the Dock of the Bay (see below). Listen to a sample of the song on the Otis Redding website. The lyrics are available on Lyrics Depot. Video taken on the walkway outside Skates Restaurant
