Lake Merritt Lots of patience and slow motion movement to capture this rare moment There are so many exquisite trees alongside the lake's paths. Here's one of the gnarly ones. #treelove #treetrove
An aerial shot showing San Francisco, the Bay Bridge, and The Twin Peaks at the bottom of the photo. Sunsets from the east side of the lake are beautiful. Plenty of lakeside lawn and benches for a picnic. Lakeshore Avenue. Restaurants within 1 block (up Foothill): Portal, Rockin' Crawfish. Since 2010 the walking path and landscaping around the entire lake has been upgraded. It's now very beautiful. During daylight hours it's safe to walk around the entire lake, along with all the families, musicians, runners, and people walking their dogs (and once I saw a duck on a leash being taken for a swim). The gondola is often out at sunset. Chicken and waffles! Not to mention good Mac and cheese! #treetrove Partial view of the front entrance of St Paul church, San Francisco, California Canadian geese out for a stroll in Lake Merritt, home of the first wildlife sanctuary in the U.S. Founded in 1870 by the mayor of Oakland, Dr. Samuel Merritt. At the time there were still thick wetlands surrounding the area which attracted migratory birds, including a variety of ducks, egrets, American coots, Black Crown Night Herons, seagulls, and more.
