RRC:Up To 5 Miles Away

"The woods are lovely dark and deep. But I have miles to go before I sleep."

-Robert Frost

RRC: Up To 5 Miles Away
Suggested by Me :)

Karen chose one of my suggestions for our current RRC. The idea was to go up to five miles away from your home, in any direction, and show us what you find. LOL. I was prepared to do that, but then this cold struck. LOL. I haven't been able to get out this week and get new photos, but I did have some archived photos that give you a really good idea about why I love it here so much. The top photo was taken at the Berkeley Marina, in the early evening. It had been an extremely hot day, and folks were out enjoying the gentle breeze off the bay. In the background is the Golden Gate Bridge. No matter how many times I see it, it always takes my breath away.

Now, here are some additional sights, up to five miles away...

The middle of Tilden Park...

Downtown Berkeley...

Sather Tower on the Berkeley campus...

What can I say, it's home! :)

Now, go see what the other Robins found on their journeys!

Beautiful. It all looks so 'smart'. I want to take a walk in that lovely park. I can feel the sun beating down on my back right now.

Looks like a great adventure in every direction. I do hope you are tip top soon and the cold is gone. This was a fun challenge...

Sandy said...

Very lovely. The photo of the bridge is breath taking! Hope you are feeling much better!!

Peggy said...

This was really a great suggestion. I went out there not knowing what I would come home with on my camera.

I love the Golden Gate bridge, especially the sailboat way off in the distance. And the park.

Karen Funk Blocher said...

I always love your bridge photos, and especially love the color in this one, and the way the marina is perfectly aligned in front of it here. The park, too is gorgeous, especially in your second photo of it. I hope that cold clears up soon, so you can get back out there for more great photos like these!

I love that 3rd shot best, I would love to just sit there with a book and a camera, looks so peaceful there.I'm a bit late in posting RR cos I had a busy weekend. Going to post it now.
