A Family Trip to the Bay Area

The day after Raul and I embarked on our westward journey, my mom calls to tell me that she's bought a ticket for San Francisco within a month and a half. Instead of showing them around, we found ourselves being led to explore our new city.

In the couple of hours when Raul and my work schedule overlapped, my dad would take walks around our Oakland neighborhood to photograph it's strange structures and characters. You should see his photos, they speak for themselves:

Tight-rope at Lake Merritt.


While we didn't hike too far due to some back pain, but we happily snuck some beers on a bench under the trees at the edge of the parking lot.

First trip over the Golden Gate Bridge was on the way back from Marin and into the city. The light was magical, but after years of dreaming of this place, it went by too fast! Raul, mamá y papá walked over a few days later.

Look at this bum! So lucky to have Matias in town as well who, even though he doesn't think so, is right in synch with SF style.

More cousins... and this one lives here, which is a plus! Rose in front of a gallery with strange illusionist (albeit, entertaining) art near Union Square.

Back at Rose and Nick's in Bernal Hill.


We thought we were in Alameda but we were back in Oakland.


How'd you know?

Lucky to call these fools family! (P.S. Notice how dad's trying to outdo me with his photo, heh heh...)

  1. We had so much fun. We can't wait to go back and continue visiting the beautiful places in and around San Francisco with two of our favorite people
