Emeryville Marina Walk CHANGED TO LAFAYETTE RESERVOIR

  • September 21, 2013 · 9:30 AM
  • Lafayette Reservoir

Sorry for the last minute change, but I just read a comment by one of our members that the annual shoreline cleanup is this Saturday, and parking at the Emeryville Marina is likely to be small to non-existent.

Lafayette Reservoir is a regular walk and easily serves as a backup if something like this happens. It's just under 3-miles although there are some hills.

    Sorry I didn't join everyone for coffee after Lafayette Reservoir. I had some things to do after the walk and that Starbucks looked crowded.

      That just means that next time, you'll have to pick up the tab!

    I can't think of a better group of people to walk in the rain with. Nice meeting you Linda :-)

    Rain? What rain? I was in the company of two lovely ladies enjoying chatting on a wide range of topics. Thanx Sue and Judy.

      Awwww, thank YOU, Steve! It was fun! (BTW: Decalogue: a basic set of rules carrying binding authority.)

    Mike, you must have said a serious prayer to the rain gods, asking them to hold off until 1030. Wow!!

    Please read my email to the members about the Lafayette Art and Wine Festival tomorrow. I suggest you not try to drive though Lafayette and exit 24 from Alcalanes Road instead.

    For those of u who wd like a little longer walk, I recommend arriving 20 minutes early and parking FREE nr the intersection of Mt Diablo and Risa Rd (1/4 mile west of the Res entrance). Then walk back to the entrance and up the hill to the parking lot. Looking forward to seeing all of u Saturday!

    There has been an expansion of parking meter over the past 2 months. I dont know when you were there last. they have added parking spaces

    Are the parking meters usually full at this time or did I just have bad luck the last time I tried to make it.

    September 19, 2013

      It depends on what kind of day it is. I suggest going toward the end of the metered lot. Last time I was there I saw most of the empty spots at the end.

    Just learned that the 21st is shoreline clean-up day for Emeryville, so there may be multiple groups meeting near the Marina.

      Thanks Cathy. I didn't read this earlier but I've changed the meetup location today.

    Is it ok to bring dogs

    I wrote Mike this morning about Coastal Clean-Up Day. It always has a very large turn out. Many groups need volunteers from 8 am - noon. Plus all the parking around any shoreline area will be impacted.

    • Mike

      I appreciate the fact that this is a very worthy cause, but I'd rather stick to events that involve walking or hiking. Thanks for the suggestion.

      September 16, 2013

    It is OK to bring dogs that are well behaved and accustomed to being around a group of people during a walk or hike. I ask that people give consideration to how their dog might react to the walking location and the size of the crowd in advance. Keeping the dog on a short leash, as opposed to a long cord, is preferred.

    So far, the dog owners who've brought their pets have been very considerate. Since the walking groups tend to break up into smaller groups once we start, anyone who doesn't like walking with dogs can simply walk faster or slower.

    As long as we don't have any issues, and not too many dogs at once, I'll continue the policy to allow them.

    To those people who disagree with my policy, let's keep in mind that I'm paying Meetup for the priviledge of having a group. I don't ask anyone else to pay anything other than out of pocket costs like the Angel Island Ferry, their own coffee, etc.
