Yesterday after leading the Oakland Urban Paths walk in Old Oakland and West Oakland, I stopped by the south end of Lake Merritt to decompress, enjoy the view, and call K to let her know my ETA. It's such a different experience than before the Measure DD work was done. Instead of odd smells from the water and the pedestrian underpasses, with traffic zipping past a few feet away, I was treated to a peaceful scene of birds feeding and a variety of Oaklanders out enjoying the view.
