I found this beauty on the table inside Berth 40 aka Seaman’s Club, aka Maritime Center, aka Seaman’s Church Institute. The flowers on this plant were micro mini, people had to use a magnifying glass to see the little buds.
A sunset post for you and yours. One of these sunsets is viewed from El Cerrito, and one is viewed from Alameda - All others are from Oakland. Go ahead and guess if you want. It doesn’t matter where you are if there’s a beauti-mous sunset to behold.
Aw man, I missed the first of the month post. I was at a memorial on that day, celebrating life. Hope March is going well for you, tumblr people. Also, can I get an ‘O Happy Day’ for spring staring this week?!
