Pauline's Antiques Of Alameda


I was in Alameda and had some time to kill. I stopped in a place called Pauline's Antiques and had one of the most interesting experiences of my life. Pauline's Antiques is more of a store of a serious pack rat. It is two stories filled with stuff and when I say filled, I mean it.:

 It is a great place to go if you have time to kill:












And I bought this:



Pauline's Antiques is one of the most interesting stores I have ever been. It is amazing to look around and browse.

The Martinelli Winery is a nice place to relax with friends after you have been out and about for the day.

People wanted to see more of my visit to the Charles M. Schulz Museum and I will not disappoint:





In the gift shop, there is special gallery up stairs which is really cool:







This next piece is a Japanese wood carving called the "The Dragon and Snoopy":



The Peanuts gang doing the Beatles



The Charles M. Museum and Research Center is a wonderful place to go. The cool thing is that I am a member and can go as I please. Hopefully, they will change some exhibits and might go up there and report back on the changes there.

The Inn at the Presidio


While I was walking around at the Presidio in San Francisco, I came across the Inn at the Presidio. The Inn was built in 1903 and named Pershing Hall. It was  home for bachelor officers when the Presidio was a major Army base. Pershing Hall is listed on the National Register of historic places.  It has been restored as a boutique hotel with 22 rooms.  All the rooms were filled the day I was there but what I saw inside the lobby, The Inn at the Presidio is a special place:
















The Inn at the Presidio is a special place that oozes history, it is worth a visit even if you are not staying there.
