"Alameda has the second highest number of boat slips per capita of any city in the world, after Marina Del Rey."
Considering that Alameda is an island -- with access to San Francisco Bay and beyond --- and not mentioning that we're a stone's throw away from the Coast Guard island, one would expect, and will see a lot of marinas and boat slips.
There are several marinas/yacht clubs (about 11).
When walking the dogs, I particularly like going down by Fortman, Alameda and Grand Marinas because they provide a very nice pave path lined with flowers, and with views of the Coast Guard ships at dock, not to mention the many boats in their slips.
From time to time, we'll also see several kayakers as well as the UC-Berkeley rowing team practicing.
The marinas are by the trail that also meander by the Grand Marina Village, the latest development featuring 3-story homes by Warmington Homes.
Boaters who like to hear live music and unwind with a few brews and some finger-lickin' foods may stop by the Roosters on Grand Avenue....but that's the subject of another blog.
We're so lucky that Alameda has many sunny days with mild temperatures, and many places to see and enjoy. By the way, all these photos were taken using my iphone.
