serendipity, or discovering the Palo Alto Duck Pond at sunset

December 29th, 2010 by admin Leave a reply »

sunsetPicked up Carter from Kids’ Club yesterday. Missed the recycling center by minutes. Started the ritual driving-by of Palo Alto Airport. Went too far. Entered Baylands Park. Found the Duck Pond. At sunset. Lost track of time. Wish you were here. We will be back.

Carter’s top three reasons for returning: Water. Room to run. Unobstructed views of airplanes and helicopters landing and taking off from Palo Alto Airport.

    The Duck Pond has been a favorite destination since I was Carter’s age (50 years ago). Take day-old bread to feed the ducks — they’ll love you. Also, go beyond the duck pond for some wonderful bayside walking trails.

    Jealous!! We have gray, icky weather here!

    Howard: Good to hear from you. Hope you’re enjoying the holidays. Carter had me drive by the duck pond again today, so that we could show it to Jeff. It’s a definite hit.
