We went to a party in Oakland this afternoon, then braved the toll plaza on the Bay Bridge to go into the city for dinner here.
I wish I'd taken a photo of the view down 18th St. toward the bay -- the entire view was taken up by what at night appears to be a gigantic apartment complex. It was actually the Star Princess cruise ship. I knew those things were big, but holy cow!
Talked a lot to old friends about what was my favorite ride of the year, around the Sierras over Labor Day. I miss that part of my life, but I have wonderful other things in my life instead now. But I miss those too.
