Tofurkeys were sold-out on Thanksgiving Day so we were forced to have curry fries and Spaten at the Irish/India Pub. I was able to score one Saturday (in Berkeley, of course) so we cooked the feast Saturday night.
PS. The Indian/Irish Pub/Hookah bar will soon also have bicycle and electric scooter rentals. Crazy!

Tilden Regional Park in Berkeley
Named for Samuel Tilden
It was a pretty nice park in terms of paths, but there were alot of dogs and horses.

First Thanksgiving not at home. It was quiet and relaxing and I'll be able to make it up at Christmas.

SF, Mt. Diablo

One of my favorite things are the 3d push-button lite-up maps from before-I-was-born that are common to Visitor's Centers. The one at Seneca Rocks is up among the top ranked. We even saw one outdoors next to a bridge in Patagonia! (but the case was a little foggy) There was a simple on at the Summit Museum on Mt. Diablo, which made my day! (on top of good weather, sunshine, good company)
