Walking Behind Hayward's Memorial Park


I went over to Memorial Park in Hayward and did some walking on the trail behind the park. Memorial Park is the home of one of Hayward's great institutions- The Hayward Plunge. The Hayward Plunge is a Hayward institution as an indoor aquatic center that offers swimming classes, water aerobics, lap swim and open swim times. It is open year-around (except these days because of COVID-19). It is a Works Progress Administration (WPA) project from the depression and opened in 1936. Generations of kids from Southern Alameda County (including myself) learned to swim there:



There is a small park outside the Hayward Plunge but I have always like going behind Memorial Park and the Hayward Plunge to the trail behind it:
















Memorial Park in Hayward is an amzing place and I glad that it is in my home city/

Music Monday: Flowers in Gardens

Just featuring songs that fill our gradens and grow our flowers:










I don't speak French but I found this last one to be so beautiful. It is Duo des Fleurs (Flower Duet)

Hope everyone is safe and healthy and has a wonderful Monday.

Memorial Day 2020


This weekend is Memorial Day weekend and I wanted to say thanks to all the servicemen and servicewomen who have given their life for this country. In this country, we talk about our freedoms but with freedom comes responsibilties and one of the greatest responsibilities is protecting our freedom.

I went to a local cemetery and took this pics:







I know that life is strange for all these days with this COVID-19 and everything but if you have a spare minute please say a prayer for all the servicemen and servicewoman who have given their lives for this country.

As Seen on Instragram


Just some stuff I have seen and put on Instagram in the last couple of months:







The Berkeley City Club-Julia Morgan Architect
I walked in to a new ice cream  place in Downtown Hayward called Tik Tok and saw this on the walls:





And I saw this as I was driving and had to pull over at an open space near me:




But we always need to remember this:


Hope everyone is safe and healthy.

Music Monday: Some EDM

Just going to boogie down on this Music Monday as we have some EDM (Electronic Dance Music). I know it is different and totally different for me but I might as well try something different plus it is something that my son listens to and during the shelter in place I am hearing more of it from his room:









And he did help me out on picking out the songs. LOL. Hope everyone has a Happy Monday.

Lost Blog: Going Through the Cascades


I forgot that I had these photos on my phone. I took these in January going up to Portland to see my daugher. These are from the Amtrak train I was going through the Cascade mountains:










It wasn't all snow:





That train trip to Portland was so cool. I can't wait until all of this is over and I can take another one to see my daughter.
