Biking to Richmond on the Bay Trail


Today started out nice and lazy, just like I like it! We got up late and lounged around, eating toast and some of my leftovers from yesterday. Eventually I went to hang out in Strawberry Creek Park for a bit, which was lovely and vibrant with people in the sunshine.

Then Mimi and I met up with Thomas again, at the North Berkeley BART station, and biked the Bay Trail up to Richmond and back. We started in the late afternoon, and by the time we headed back, the sun was setting and the views were incredible.

On the way out, we stopped at a memorial sculpture for Rosie the Riveter, which was cool. (As you may know, there was no one historic “Rosie;” she was rather a sort of composite character of the many women who helped to build ships during the war.)

After we returned from the ride, I was hungry and ready to try another Bay Area vegan institution, Cha-Ya Japanese restaurant. I ordered the veggie tempura, and it was delicious!

Tomorrow I’ll head back to Oakland for one more night in the East Bay. I’ve loved Berkeley, and will be dreaming up ways to return.
