Brown is the new Green….in Alameda

If  Orange is the New Black, then it’s fine that Brown is the New Green….and that’s how it is at our local parks here in Alameda.

This is the best PR sign I’ve seen in a while!  It’s located by the beach, near the windsurf Shack, where Shoreline turns into Westline.  how my thinking is influenced by my thinking too much.

Short Commentary-
I just looked on  EBMUD, our local water utility website…to take their self-survey, and they may be able to send their customers some free water-saving devices.  Here’s the link !  My sense is anything that saves even a bit of water….is a good thing.   Check it out!

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!
