Alameda

Alameda lies across the bay from San Francisco and if we are in the area we visit our niece Alice who lives across the street from the water.


We walked across the nearby park to go to the Mexican restaurant that we liked last year. We walked in this park last year and you can see the blog here. It seemed much drier this year. California is still experiencing a major drought.



Lovely colors.



Alameda was holding some sort of festival on Webster Street which is a major shopping street.


Inside Calafia Taqueria. It's very basic but very good. You order at the counter and they give you a number. When your number is called you go to the counter and pick up your food.


The ceviche is absolutely delicious and the re-fried beans are good. We also enjoyed the fish tacos.


Next morning the tide was out in the bay.



To get some much needed exercise I walked as far south as I could go and then back again. This was the end of the line.


The walking path looking north.



It looked like a cannon.




Lots of people were using the path or beach. I noticed this group of women in white robes gathering for some sort of what I don't know. Perhaps yoga or something similar.


Lastly, have you ever heard the phrase 'go pound sand'? Look just to the right of the bloke in the blue shirt and you might see the head of a sledge hammer. Somebody was whaling away at the beach using the sledge hammer. No doubt it would develop strong muscles.

The walk took a bit less than an hour so I rewarded myself with a glass of water and a nap.
