Space age….from the 60’s

Blog photo:  This looks like something from Tomorrowland at Disneyland!  It’s the Crown Beach ‘monument’ to….I’m not sure what!  But I caught it at sunset last week, as it sits semi-silhouetted to the bay and sky.

Blog post: This has been summer in winter, through and through!  My yard is starting to bloom, which is normal, but I’ve put the water on everything since the first of the year.  I was a bit heavy-handed with the pruning of the roses this time.  I’m hoping they’ll be back.

I like the way the yard is clean and tidy.  No leaves, no fuss, no muss.  And now that the 90′ tree is gone next door….I am doing the happy dance because there are NO MORE PINE NEEDLES!

It’s a bit lighter later, and I don’t have to jump on my bike for the sunset at 4:45pm. It shows up about 6pm.  Spring is around the corner.  And it’s going to rain on Saturday.

I arrived in Alameda in 1973, as a new bride...with husband Carl Schumacher, both of us from Newport Beach. He was embarking on his career as a Naval Architect (i.e. yacht designer) under Gary Mull. Please see the 'ABOUT ME' page in this website! www.MarilynSchumacher.com to see how it has all turned out! I'm so blessed!
