When our son was a baby, my husband and I walked a lot at Lake Chabot in Castro Valley. Each side of the lake has a 1.5 mile paved trail (the West Shore and East Shore trails), perfect for walking with a stroller. When we would walk the East Shore Trail, almost every time, our son became fussy on the return portion of the path, about 2 miles or so into the out-and-back walk. That’s where this bench is located. I always think of this as my breast-feeding bench with a beautiful view. Every time I walk past it, I remember those days when my son was a baby.
