Thursday we got up early and headed out to the East Bay to do some gardening at Mr. Poe's school in Fremont. Let me tell you that gardening is hard work. It was pretty hot and we weren't even working for very long but I was totally worn out. We went for lunch at Mexican place in Fremont that was surprisingly good. On the way home we stopped by Coyote Hills Regional Park. It's this beautiful park on the bay that has these gorgeous wetlands that have been laboriously restored and maintained. Gorgeous:
There's also a big salt pond that's a remnant of salt production in the bay. The pool is too salty for anything to grow anywhere near it, but it does support a population of brine shrimp that's then supporting a population of birds:
We headed home and I took Rufus for a long walk. After I got home I got cleaned up and we had dinner and then we went to bed. Happy 4th of July!
