Default Garreston Point and the Bay Farm Island Lagoon

The tide was high when I got out to Garreston Point so there were not many wildlife around then I went back to Alameda to one of my favorite lagoon at Woodbridge Estates.

Thanks, Marcelo! The weather here is very warm and unusual for this time of the year. We haven't seen any rain for a month. We are into a drought definitely but great for walking around taking pictures.
