Explore Shoreline Park in Mountain View on Pre-Work Walk

Shoreline Park is another easily accessible walk when visiting Mountain View, California for business.  I budgeted extra time in the morning and spent an hour walking around the trails.  I started off near Rengstorff House which is apparently the oldest building still standing in Mountain View (built in 1867 and restored in the 1980s).

It seems that 8 AM is tee time on the links at Shoreline Park.  A wagon train of golf carts zipped by.

I soon arrived at the lake in Shoreline Park.  Colorful boats lined the placid surface.

Shoreline Park was an ideal spot for a bit of birdwatching.  I could have watched this little guy for hours.  It was certainly noisy but its range of song was amazing and beautiful.

The most awesome part though was seeing this Burrowing Owl.  He rocked up, landed on this white pole, posed, and then flew off.  What an amazing creature -- totally made my day!
