Check out George! Who knows how to party hearty as the big dog in his wintery woods!
We began our walk on the western/southern side of the Carquinez Bridge, part of I-80. The pedestrian approach runs alongside the exit at the southern edge of the bridge.
Recommendation: When other trails are washed out from rain, or heat makes walking inland too hard on us, this walk (short of a mile each way) is the perfect way to stretch our legs. There is water available at the Vallejo end, and ample parking at the Crockett end in the parking lot next to The Dead Fish restaurant.
Refugio Valley Walking Trail is the walking path for my town. We’ll be checking it out in sections, and this is section #1. We begin at the parking lot.
And continue up the road…
Just beyond the corner is a nice piece of shade.
The dogs catch up at doggy news post (aka a tree)

Hide your dog’s eyes!! This is a trip to the Pt. Isobel Dog Park on the Richmond/Berkeley border. We start where we end at the hose spigot off Rydin Rd.
We skipped this whole part of the walk. It’s a nice long section with great lawns for dogs to chase balls on. But my goofs have their minds set on swimming today.
And they’re off! I’ll see them in about 10 minutes when I catch up.
The tennis ball lawns. and the riprap walls.
After the walk, a stop for a drink and a hosing off before heading home. I promised them discretion enough that I did not show them getting their bath. The dogs do have some pride.
What is so special about walking with a dog? They get us moving, yet force us to slow down and notice the envirnment. They make us feel safe, yet are a perfect way to start a conversation.
