This shot was taken at Shoreline Park where the Estuary meets the Bay. We're looking southeast, with the Oakland Hills in the far background. The Port of Oakland is huge. Larger and larger cranes are being brought in to handle the container traffic. Last year they brought in the largest crane ever to help lift a piece of the new section (Oakland side) of the Bay Bridge. This construction is finally replacing the side of the bridge deemed unsafe after the 1989 earthquake. (Best not to rush into anything, right?). The latest rain storm has passed and we are expecting a few days of dry, pleasant weather.
