Choosing To Be Happy – No. 69


This past weekend I went for a hike starting at Seal Point Park and headed South along the San Francisco Bay. My friend Lisa and I have been having a “friendly debate” over the history of Seal Point Park. The “hill” that covers most of this park has a man-made appearance and my observation that it looked like an old land fill has been disputed. I have been searching for the history of Seal Point Park but found nothing until I checked a site called wikimapia, which was suggested by a co-worker, where one can explore the history of various places that are usually not marked. According to wikimapia, Seal Point Park was a landfill from the 1930’s through the 1980’s. Sometime in the 1990’s, the land fill was capped and transformed into a park. On top of the “hill” is this unique wind mill that I see as a flower. As the sun was setting, the metal flower was reflecting the fading light. The view from the top of Seal Point Park was a reason to be in the moment. Hiking is always a happy way to spend an afternoon.

  1. Hiking IS always a happy way to spend an afternoon!

    p.s. a house up the street (in my new ‘hood) has a miniature version of that flower/windmill – approx 7 ft high. I think it’s lovely!

    1. I’m guessing this one was about 15 to 20 feet high. It is interesting to watch the reflected light change. Hiking, as you know, is my favorite diversion from the everyday grind.
