Weekend Reflection: Peralta Creek

Down the hill from the Peralta Hacienda (previous post) is Peralta Creek.  This is one area where it comes above ground and creates an authentic riparian ecology niche.  This is one of the things that is so surprising about Oakland.  In the middle of a decidedly urban area, there are these oases of rural life that appear and delight.  This small section has picnic tables and access to surrounding streets.  I imagine this creek provided the adobes their water source and probably helped irrigate crops.  Because there are tiny glimmers of watery reflections, I'm linking to Weekend Reflections.
