What's In This Blog

I created this blog for my journal. I am a member of The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints. In this blog I keep many of the things I come across as a member of the church. I also share my experiences on the ACE Train and getting to work, my experiences in Manteca where we have lived for three years, and other things I think are noticeable.

Coyote Creek, Santa Clara Street Bridge Art

This bridge is where Santa Clara Street goes over the Coyote Creek.  On the Southwest corner is a fire station.  On the Northeast corner is the Coyote Creek Park by the Roosevelt Community Center. The bridge is decorated on both sides with mosaics.  I remember when they did this.  I also remember the news story of somebody taking a hammer to the mosaics and destroying them.  I don't think they were all destroyed, but there are still several open pains.  Anyway, take a look.  Fish and bird themes seem to abound.  There are Latino, Native American and Potruguese American themes.  Some are just designs while others show pictures.

A damaged one.  There also also many panes with just the background white as on the left.
