with some good weather to guide our rides, the boy and i took a recent lovely spin in our new city to get a dose of vitamin d and some fresh air. the weather was beautiful and there was no need for a sweater or jacket! the lake near by home was filled with walkers, runners, dogs, children, birds, and bikes that it was just perfect to take advantage of any sun we were kissed with. although the bay area is famous for foggy, windy, rainy days around winter time, we have been getting a little luck with dodging the 27 days of constant rain, can't complain! days like these make me more grateful for being a cali girl and it's nice not being stuck in the rain for once too. as i continue to discover the east bay, i'm asking for locals to send some recommendations on neighborhoods and places to visit, eat, drink, shop, ride and hang out at. the boy and i are setting aside an adventure date this weekend, any suggestions?
