Garbage Dump Rams

Took the bike out to the park again at lunchtime, but this time returned via Carribean Drive instead of Moffett Park. It's a much straighter route, on wider roads, and the one hill is longer and less steep than the one hill in the other route.

And as I passed the garbage dump, I saw there was a flock of sheep, scraggly looking (winter coats still on) with almost as many rams as ewes. A pretty elderly herd, I think, judging from the prodigious horns on many of the rams.

In the park I followed the trail by the marshlands, and saw a couple of avocets and Fosters terns among the Canada geese, mallards and swallows. There's a long boardwalk out over the wetlands, with a park bench at the end.

Next week I'll bring my camera.
