Places Around Burlingame - Snapshots

This page contains photos of places in and around Burlingame. It shows photos of:

Coyote Point Recreation Area, 21st February 2002.

Coyote Point Recreation Area is 15 minutes drive down Highway 101. It includes parks, beaches and picnic areas, a museum dedicated to increasing awareness of the effects of human habitation on San Francisco Bay, and a small zoo containing local wildlife.

This Blue Heron is one of the inhabitants of the walk-in aviary.

The museum is located on a hill overlooking the Coyote Point Marina. In the background you can see the San Mateo Bridge, which links San Mateo on the west side of the bay with Hayward on the east.
From the hill we had a clear view of the jets coming in to land at San Francisco airport.
Both runways were in use that day.

Christmas Day 2001

Christmas Day was cold and wet. To celebrate we had mulled wine and Christmas pudding by an open fire.
Because we were only spending one Christmas in Burlingame we didn't want to spend a lot of money on decorations. So I cut holly and ivy from our garden, strung popcorn together and bought some apples.

Central Park, San Mateo - November/December 2001

In the Japanese Gardens testing out the polarising filter before I visit Nepal.
Couldn't believe the number of squirrels running around Central Park. Much easier to photograph than the ones in our backyard.

Burlingame

There is no laundry tub in our house, so Mitzi is bathed outside whenever she needs it and the weather is fine.

She's amazing - just stands there, doesn't run away like the other dogs I've owned.

(That's because she's paralysed with humiliation and indignation - Tony)

Trousdale Drive, Burlingame.

We live down the bottom of the hill and three blocks to the right.

You can see how close we are to the airport!

View from Bayshore Boulevard, Burlingame.

This photo is taken from the edge of the bay looking across at Mount Diablo and the San Francisco airport runways. Clouds had gathered around the airport.

Look closely and you might see the light on the runway.
