My town shootout... water, water everywhere!

This week's theme is water, and even though lovely Dublin is located in the San Francisco Bay Area, we have to drive about 30 minutes to see the ocean. So, why not take a stroll around Dublin's creeks and arroyos?

This is Alamo Creek, which has a charming and meandering paved bike path alongside that runs north-south through the entire town. On any given day you'll see Dubliners out with their dogs, or cycling through on their way. You'll also have a good chance to see various fowl, like our state bird the California Quail (easily identified by the little plume atop its head), numerous ducks and loons, as well as the occasional group of our wild turkeys!

  1. Ah yes, the Alamo Creek - I was glad Friday's fuel spill didn't get to here - that would have been worse for the wildlife!
