Corkscrew Cafe and Gegrois Tasting Patio

A couple weekends ago I had a chance to be an adult and visit Carmel Valley.  A little out of Bay Area range but a spectacular place to share.  

Adventure Playground @ The Berkeley Marina

I love Adventure Playground at the Berkeley Marina.  Not just for the amazing exploration and creative opportunities for my kids but for the beautiful and ever-changing displays.

Hillside Elementary School

Hillside Elementary School is located on Le Roy Avenue in the hills of Berkeley.  It is a beautiful example of Tudor Revival architecture.  It is on the National Register of Historic Places.  Yet it is in total decay... a beautiful but wasted building.
