I woke up to a quiet oasis and headed down the hill to see my aunt Liana.
Then, my favorite drive down to the valley. Descending in elevation passing two entrances to Yosemite, rolling hills, and hotter as I descend – eventually to 17 feet elevation in the inner valley. Altamont pass and its wind turbines, then to Livermore and a great visit with my middle school music teacher and her retired science teacher husband (from my high school). We had a great time catching up, and the put up with my silver monster in their front yard for 2 nights! Thank you, Liz & Carl. What must your neighbors think?
I drive into Livermore via First Street, and arrived during a food event. Horse and buggy traffic is usually discouraged.

Early morning, and after another fabulous breakfast, I braved the bay area traffic to spend the day in Alameda with my aunt, uncle, and a high school friend.
After dinner, we went to Forbidden Island. Must, go, back. I could live there. Tiki theme, blowfish lamps, tiki idols, drink umbrellas, ultra-lounge music, giant outdoor tiki bar, cool crowd. Yes, please.
I’m in heaven.
