We landed in Berkeley C.A. The night was spent strolling the streets. Being new years most places were closed. Fourth Street was still light up for the holidays and we warmed our bones with some Peet's Coffee and a slice of gingerbread. Many shops lined the streets and we truly did window shop since that is all we could do.The Amtrak station is also located here.
Deciding that seafood and coffee don't mix well we passed on dining at the Grotto. Later dinner was enjoyed at La Mission Grill 1255 University Ave, Berkeley C.A. From the store displays and signs we definitely were in the Middle Eastern section of town. Oh how I wish these shops were open, so many things I enjoy were locked inside the closed doors and I would of loved to have henna done.
Paintings on brick buildings. Sorry for the photo quality these were taken on my phone. I had a fun night in Berkeley and great rest at The Holiday Inn next to the library. I woke up at 4:31 a.m. the next day full of excitement... it was my birthday and we were headed to San Francisco.
