Alameda has cobblestones…

This street in Alameda has cobblestones under decades of pavement!

This photo could bring back memories to the Victorians (many of which are being renovated) around town. I was riding by my bike by a friend’s house, and she literally popped out of her garden. We were catching up and then I looked down at the curb, and was so surprised to see the ‘under-layment’! 


This says it all….

The Affordability Squeeze

That’s a wrap for now! Hope you enjoyed the sprinkles last night…but my white car became a light brown mess.

Have a great weekend!

best, marilyn

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!
