The Wine Country and Berkeley

A visit to the wine country yesterday turned out a delightful surprise. Balmy, fragrant, very relaxed. Fabio showed his new house, which was sweet, and we wandered around Healdsburg, had a very nice lunch and then drove back to San Francisco. Dinner at a good Thai restaurant later.

Today, I have walked into Berkeley proper (about half an hour’s walk from here): College Avenue is nice all along, and the Derby past lovely leafy gardens. Telegraph was a bit of a train crash in parts. A few people who took a wrong turn wandering about, and quite a trashy feel. Interesting to see, though. I managed to get the wrong replacement battery for my laptop, and am just about to step into a cab to take it back. Duh.

After that, goodbye for now to San Francisco, and the airport. See you later this year.
