We spent two wonderful days with our family members in Oakland, California for multiple celebrations. I made use of this opportunity to walk round the neighbourhood and take a few photographs and especially of the very beautiful lake Merritt.
Lake Merritt is a large tidal lagoon in the centre of Oakland, California. It is surrounded by parkland and city neighbourhoods. The lake features grassy shores, a boating centre where sailboats, canoes and rowboats can be rented. Lake Merritt is a popular for walking and jogging and has a well laid out walking/jogging track which runs along the perimeter of the lake. The lake is spread over approximately 150 acres, with a circumference of about 5.50 kms and is estimated to be about 10 feet deep.
