I came home at about 10am and later in the afternoon, Ami called me and asked if I wanted to go on an adventure with her and her boyfriend Ken. We headed down to Alviso, which was a port town long ago before they built levees to keep the bay water out. Ken had heard about this ghost town, called Draw Bridge, where during the prohibition it was a gathering place for drunks and whores (because of it's remote location). Well, it was built on marsh land and so it hand been abandoned after booze was legal again. So getting there was quite a trek. We had to walk along the train tracks to get there, and we did encounter two trains going and coming, but there was enough space on the side for us to retreat to. What an interesting setting we had with the San Francisco Bay to the west and Fremont/Hayward to the east. Here are some pics from that little escapade:
Some cracks in the sand I thought were cool lookin'
We lovingly nicknamed this part of Drawbridge the "Sex Shacks", figuring that these were the brothels.
It was so well worth the 7 mile hike to and fro, and having to walk along the train tracks, which I am sure was illegal. Keep in mind that all the structures are in marshy, brackish water. Interesting that at one point this was a small town.
