Caesar Chavez park in West Berkeley is my favorite near by place to visit in the east bay.
We just had a crazy heat wave where Oakland and Berkeley were 95 degrees. It was terrible really but we ended up eating dinner for two nights outside in Lakeside park which felt much cooler than our apartment. I felt relaxed spending the evening after work outdoors sprawled out on a blanket under the trees despite the warm temps.
Sunday pizza night was almost cancelled but I persevered. I will certainly have to come up with some hot weather dinner options. This is something I have to research because my first thought is eat out in an air conditioned restaurant but that may not be sustainable if we have a summer. Monday we ate tuna sandwiches and Tuesday we got Whole Foods salad bar. Maybe pre-made food is the way to go. Pre-cooked and ready to take to Lakeside park.

maiki brought sandwiches from Ike’s and Emma and I met up with a blanket and melon/quesadilla for Emma to eat. There was still a patch of sun to sit in and enjoy the late summer evening. On the walk home Emma had her first lolly. ^_^
