Oakland

still here. waiting to see if we can take the boat to San Fransisco as there has been quite the oil spill here. I'm sure you've all heard. They were not letting boats come to the docks and shore. Got the deck painted yesterday YEH! and went to the farmers market they have here. Great!! I found quince! never new what it looked like check out the picture on the right. also checked out the "Last chance Saloon" totally cool. It was built in 1883 and is still standing and operational. It is slanted from the 1906 earthquake and totally stable. Also have the sod house of Jack London here. quite neat.
Not sure of our next plan of action. still want to go to Alcatraz but it's booked out today. will keep you posted. Apparenlty the last big oil spill here was in 1976 or so.
So far we have not found any hurt birds. thank god!!
having toubles loading pictures so stay tuned.
Maya has been having fun with the digital camera !!

Whew, close call with your anchor.

We've just had our first storm of the season here - some wicked gusts blowing through. Power out all over the place this morning, but not at the marina. Aren't you glad you're now in California? (-:
