Back in the USA

It’s been a week since the kids and I returned from our month long Europe vacation.  It’s just a memory now. I can’t even put the experience into words as it was a little bit of everything from surreal to spectacular.  I kept a separate blog for friends, family and anyone else who happened to stumble upon my blog.

THE CAFÉ SOCIETY HACK & KIDS EUROPEAN ADVENTURE

Now I’m back, the kids are now on summer vacation with their Dad and I’m getting back into day-to-day routine.   My first weekend back I was struggling jet lag so the best thing I could do with to get out of the house….one can’t nap if they are out and about.   I went to Oakland and hit the Lake Merritt Farmers Market.

I couldn’t resist a waffle covered in cream.

I was really amused as I looked around.  The fruit and food stands were so Bay Area.

Interesting vendors with the most delicious fruit.

Tent tea houses…

Lemonade shaken on ice…

Voter registration sign-ups….
Organic this and organic that…

Pretty summer colors…

Plants with magical power for the 99%…

Food stands by the best restaurants…

Naked babies in the fountains…

And of course, hotdog eating death skeletons and…

Music and laundry…Welcome home  🙂

Sunday I was out in Berkeley.  We checked out the Ashby Flea Market but I found it…uninspiring.  The big one out in Concord is way better.  We also made a stop at this house on Telegraph.  It was a little like the Ali Baba that went to in Switzerland.  The owner was quite an interesting fellow…He grew up in the house and it was stuffed…with stuff.  I found hom to be a hidden treasure of Berkeley.
