We had an entirely wonderful day. The weather was absolutely perfect; hardly a cloud in the sky. As we arrived in Berkeley, the view to San Francisco was spectacular. There were sail boats on the water, the skyline was crystal clear so you could see all the details of the buildings clear across the bay, and there wasn't much traffic. I would surmise that most everyone headed up the mountain to the snow. We had our fill of snow in the last few weeks so a trip to the bay was the perfect foil. Tomorrow when I get home from work I will post more pictures from the road trip.
For me the city is filled with such wonder. Living here in the trees, devoid of stimulus such as unique architecture, store-fronts filled with every thing you can imagine, wonderful animals on every corner (we saw so many different kinds of dogs AND cats this day!), and of course, people of ALL sorts of persuasions (remember: we were in Berkeley which has a rich political history, to say the least) has its limitations. You can only take so many photos of trees, shrubs and fungus. But the city...ahhhhhh! That is another story. There were things on every corner that piqued my interest. The Saturday road trip will continue for me for the next few days on my blog which will enable me to do my job AND post. Have a great week everyone. I will be thinking of you. And, remember to check out Willow's Magpie Tales blog on Tuesdays (link on the sidebar). I have found some really great writers over there and it has really been fun for me to be a participant as well.
