Wedded Bliss

My eating:cooking ratio was wildly inverted this past weekend in Oakland/Berkeley, California. Almost all eating, no cooking. It was a beautiful weekend with family at the Berkeley City Club, whose pool is a splendor. For posterity, the highlights:

Hogged the photo booth for most of the evening.


The famous pool was a fortress walled by rules. For example, all swimmers with long hair had to wear a swim cap.


My commentary on the hippie-dippie-granolaism of Berkeley can wait another day. My favorite restaurant by far was Pizzaiolo. Image

Slid by Jack London’s bar in Oakland with my father-in-law– First and Last Chance Saloon. Yes, the bar surface is at a 30 degree incline.  Image

And then finally got to see my family today in Redwood City and San Mateo (love you Grammi, Grandpa, Becky and all!) Before heading back to the frozen tundra of the Midwest, I made sure to wear my boots in the sand at Half Moon Bay with the man I am blissed to have wed years ago.  ImageImageImage

  1. Beautiful, beautiful, beautiful! So glad you and KP got to celebrate the newlyweds’ love, and see dear family in such an amazing part of the country. Welcome back to the tundra (amazing in its own dear way 😉 )!
