Hidden treasures of the mighty EastbayFri, March 20, 2009 - 10:49 AM
We went to this weird, awsome place I had never been to before: www.ebparks.org/parks/middle_harbor
Spank said that nobody knows about this park because of its odd location (it’s about where BART comes out to the surface from out of the under-the-bay-tube) and sure enough there was not a soul there for miles except for a bunch of fat, wild geese and far away on the horizon we could see two guys practicing karate katas.
Neat park with a long, muddy, slightly smelly beach, killer views of the SF skyline and manicured lawn for miles.
Why aren’t there a million picnics? Parties? People?
We had a wonderful evening of sunset, mad sex, decorating the house and watching Lost.
It’s so nice to come home to him. He is so perfect.
This morning I woke up all in a spooned up tangle between the tiny cat and the big man.
This doesn’t help with getting out of bed at 6 am.

I <3 Middle Harbor Park. If you walk all the way around to the furthermost western point, you're standing close to where the Oakland Mole used to be. It was a ferry and railroad pier that extended almost halfway across the Bay in the days before the bridge.
The railroad brought passengers and freight to the ferries, which would then finish the job and take their cargo over to San Francisco. The idea was to get as far out into the Bay as possible to save time on the ferries, which was the slowest part of the journey. There were other moles in the Bay Area, in Alameda and also Berkeley, I think.
