Lake Merritt Lots of patience and slow motion movement to capture this rare moment There are so many exquisite trees alongside the lake's paths. Here's one of the gnarly ones. #treelove #treetrove
Sunset at Alameda's Crown Memorial #Beach looking across at San Francisco. Fabulous place to stroll in the sand, build sandcastles and enjoy the company of thousands of birds. It's also a popular destination for kite boarders, thanks to Alameda's clear, shallow and warm waters. #GoldenHour A delicious pistachio and almonds Popsicle at the Gelati Happiness.
#SweetSpot View of San Francisco from Mt Tam Coffee and those Bay Area sunrises...😍
#reflections #colorful #skyporn Sunsets from the east side of the lake are beautiful. Plenty of lakeside lawn and benches for a picnic. Lakeshore Avenue. Restaurants within 1 block (up Foothill): Portal, Rockin' Crawfish. Since 2010 the walking path and landscaping around the entire lake has been upgraded. It's now very beautiful. During daylight hours it's safe to walk around the entire lake, along with all the families, musicians, runners, and people walking their dogs (and once I saw a duck on a leash being taken for a swim). The gondola is often out at sunset. A pistachio and Almond gelato popsicle is a good option to enjoy on a warm summer day. Chicken and waffles! Not to mention good Mac and cheese! #treetrove Partial view of the front entrance of St Paul church, San Francisco, California Canadian geese out for a stroll in Lake Merritt, home of the first wildlife sanctuary in the U.S. Founded in 1870 by the mayor of Oakland, Dr. Samuel Merritt. At the time there were still thick wetlands surrounding the area which attracted migratory birds, including a variety of ducks, egrets, American coots, Black Crown Night Herons, seagulls, and more.

Sun's rays glisten, gleam and remind us tomorrow will have its brightness. #treetrove I live in an area filled with glorious, towering, beautiful, enchanting trees. It blesses my Soul to connect with them. They keep my air fresh and clean. They are our majestic guards. This one stands alongside a gully and keeps great company with the many other trees it lives around.

Delish breakfast, everytime!! #cockadoodle #oakland I love Lake Merritt. It's beautiful all times of the day. There are folks walking around the lake throughout the day, all ages, too. There's a Fairyland Park for the kiddies, swings, a bird sanctuary, boat rentals and gongolas, even a labyrinth. There's the wonderful Lakeshore shopping area close by, too. More walking, lots of fun, great restaurants, the infamous Grand Lake Theater and much, much more! Tree People hold our stories...
