A Road Stop


 


I was driving past Gilroy, Ca and came upon this place called Bloomfield Farmers Market and decided to stop. It was well-worth the stop:












Sometimes it is work pulling over and checking things out.

The Premier of Sirius Lee-The Problematic Time Traveler


 I went to a premier of a movie in Downtown Oakland. The movie was called Sirius Lee- The Problematic Time Traveler. It was produced by Theo Hollingsworth, a producer based in Oakland. 

The movie was hosted by Druken Flim Fest Oakland who has been hosting short film pop-ups around the city. This was a cool and true pop-up, bring own chair and blanket and social distance from each other and enjoy the movie. It was held in Downtown Oakland:





The movie itself is super. So very funny and the acting is wonderful. It is truly an independent movie that is very inspiring and one of the best movies I have seen in a long time. It is the perfect mixture of early 1980's culture and values clashing with the norms of 2020. It is also filmed in Oakland and they did a great job in showing the iconic and beautiful places of the city:

Here is a short clip of the movie taken by my phone:




It was a great way to have a premier for a movie and I truly enjoyed Sirius Lee-The Problematic Time Traveler.

Walking the San Francisco Bay Trail

 


The weather has been lovely here the last couple of days. The smoke is gone from the air and I went out walking. I went to San Leandro and decided to walk some of the San Francisco Bay Trail. As I mentioned, the San Francisco Bay Trail has many parts and encompasses the whole Bay Area. I love walking all the the different places around the San Francisco Bay. The beauty of it is that you get different views in the different places:











I know I will walking more of the San Francisco Bay Trail-LOL from different place and I will be sharing the pics.

Walking at Quarry Lakes

 


Quarry Lakes is located in Fremont, Ca. Before being turned into a beautiful park, it was a gravel quarry from about 1912 until 1972. Between 1975 and 1992, the East Bay Regional Parks District and the Alameda County Water District purchased the land and started to convert the land into a Park. The 471 acre park opened up in 2000:














Quarry Lakes is a gem and I am lucky that it is 10 minutes from my house and I need to spend more time there.
