One of the things I found most interesting when I moved (with my husband) to Alameda, was the 4th of July parade. It seemed like the whole town was either in it, watching it from their front porches, or lining the streets: waving flags, and had come over the bridges or through the tube to be part of it. It felt like I was watching something from TV (n the 1970’s). Andy of Mayberry (by the Bay).
We didn’t have the parade in 2020, and won’t have our parade in 2021 due to safety precautions regarding Covid. That’s a smart move on behalf of the city. But I bet next year, 2022, could be over-the-top!
AC (active contingent on selling another property)
PCH (price change)
PSB (pending sale, want backups)
BOM (back on market – fell out of escrow)
REO (real estate owned by the lender, i.e, foreclosure)
Be safe out there…with those (illegal) fireworks here in town!
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.
