IMG_3947  road trips.

Wha’s happening!

This is the first time Alameda has had a formal pumpkin patch!  Take advantage of it!

Received this from the city last week…

For the first time ever, Speer Family Farms will take over the spacious waterfront area to create the inaugural Alameda Point Pumpkin Patch, complete with pumpkins, petting zoo, rides, giant slides, jumpy houses, extreme air jumpers, Giant Zorb Balls (hamster balls) and more. Bay Area’s favorite food trucks will rotate visits on site to satisfy all hunger pains — Savory Streets, Me So Hungry and Southern Comfort Kitchen. Open daily through the month of October, from 10 a.m. to 10 p.m. daily.

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!
