Oakland California

On to Oakland, where we had a great time visiting Bill and Anita. Bill is also an Elliot Laker. Amazing that this group of friends has spread out all over the place and keep in touch.   They all seem to love cooking and are very talented at it.  Bill grilled up some amazing steaks and served it with a lovely wine!

Our tour of Alcaraz coincided with Fleet Week in San Fransisco so there were tons of boats in the harbour and there was an air show that we were able to see from the ferry back to the mainland.

Wondering around the water front, we saw seal – just hanging out and playing while the crowd watched and snapped pictures.

Getting to dinner through the crowded, winding and steep streets was an adventure! And dinner was excellent.

Bill took us on a tour of some of his favourite wineries in the picturesque Napa Valley.
