No more train tracks leading here.

The original Fruitvale Bridge cross-piece would raise and lower based on the train traffic coming into Alameda and going out to Oakland. Alameda’s train tracks have been covered up recently. This bridge looks like a kid’s construction set!  got a text this evening…made me smile…and made me sad….

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!
