THE SECOND STORY | May 22nd, 2014

Bright sun (and strong winds ) for the beach and bay in Alameda!

The kite boarders were out on Sunday along Shoreline Drive.  I counted at least 48 kites on the bay and that didn’t count those who were sitting it out on the beach for a bit.  All things being equal…SURF WAS UP ON SUNDAY!  my view about how things are workin’ out, as I observe life.

You probably know this too. The longer you stay in a house, condo, townhome, duplex, etc.  The less it costs you in the long run, whether prices run down, or run up.  Buy smart and buy for the long run.  See the previous blog post from a service I subscribe to….

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! to see how it has all turned out! I'm so blessed!
