A small collection of some of my favorite spots around town.
(Extra props if you recognized Lake Merritt & Room 389 up there. ^-^)
Even though I'm drawn to the heavy architecture and grit of cities, it's nice to get a break from concrete every once in a while. I love being just a short walk away from multiple bodies of water (with coffee nearby!), and being surrounded by amazing plant-life is awesome. They may be simple enjoyments; but they're some of my favorite things about where I live, and I'm very grateful for them.
Hope you enjoyed the mini-tour of Oakland!
