Why We Love Alameda, Part 1
We've only been living in Alameda for a little over a year now, but I can tell that we're never going to move again. Everything about Alameda rocks. This weekend, for instance, was a scorcher, weather-wise, throughout the Bay Area. But in Alameda, the thermometer was a good 10-15 degrees cooler than in Oakland, just across Route 880. We've all been sleeping well at night, thanks to the cool breezes that come off the water that surrounds the island. So there's no need for air conditioning at home, which makes smile whenever I see the electricity bill.
Tonight, we walked over to the Kamakura Restaurant for dinner with Jenny's mom, oldest and youngest sisters, and their families. Jenny swears its the best Japanese restaurant in the Bay Area. Even Russell went wild and had sushi (salmon). It's the vibes, I tell ya. Russell and Punky are going to love growing up here.
