Then you come to a small Waterfront Park which contains an interesting monument: "Skygate", by Roger Barr, 1985. "To the memory of Eric Hoffer. A gift from Johnson & Higgins". There is a plaque commemorating Sidney Rudy. Look at a seaplane at marina. We are at the Aquarium of the Bay. There is a shortcut to this place from the "flags" picture. Use [Esc] to come back.
