Views of the Port of Oakland, California --- #5 of 5
Sunday, January 3, 2010
When you visit Port View Park and the Middle Harbor Shoreline Park, the usual shoreline park activities are available, such as picnicking, taking long walks, birdwatching, enjoying the bay views, and playing on the beach. There's also a historical museum and at least one fishing pier.
Also, it's now possible to get a closer view of the port activities in a way that wasn't possible when the adjoining land was government land that was not accessible to most of the public.
Some day I'd like to watch a ship being unloaded. The harbor was quiet since it was a holiday weekend, but a huge ship is due in early next week. Too bad I'll be at work!
