A Trip to Del Valle

by Dr. Scott Andersen in , ,


Day 2 of this weekend was just as awesome as Day 1. This time, I visited 2 lakes. In the morning, I drove to Del Valle, a beautiful park new Livermore with amazing hills and beautiful small lake. When I arrived there was a USA Swim Masters event going on. It was cool to watch, but would have been better to participate, which I would have done had I known.

The swimmers navigating the 2.5k course outlined with buoys.

After the races were over, we were able to rent kayaks and enjoy a paddle along the lake. It was nice, even though the wind had picked up. It made me have ideas of getting my own kayak so I can take it to any venue I want.  Would also like to make a day of it instead of having to watch the rental time.

The goofy video below gives a good sense of what the day was like.

On the way, we drove through some small vineyards. The pix below was my favorite from the lot.
