Heritage & Shoreline Parks

Heritage & Shoreline Parks

On Sunday D. and I visited two parks in town, the new-ish Heritage Park, and, since there wasn't a lot to engage us there, the lake at Shoreline Park.

Heritage Park is home to an 80-year old windmill donated by a local Mountain View family, a demonstration garden, and native bees.

The park is also home to the 2-room Immigrant House (in process of being restored), representative of field worker housing when Santa Clara County was an agricultural powerhouse known as the Valley of Hearts Delight.  Here is a peek through a window of the Immigrant House (I wonder if they came from the land of ice and snow?)

Moving on to Shoreline Park, we see some golden mushrooms sprouting up next to the trail.

A ruddy duck swims in the lake.

Shoreline Lake.

Pied-billed grebe.

A pair of mallards near the shore.

Another look at the lake.

One of a trio of Canada geese flies overhead toward the lake, almost too fast for my camera.
