Skates on the Bay

I tell you what, with the amazing views at Skates on the Bay in Berkeley, they could get away with mediocre food and service.  But, fortunately, the food and service are almost as good as the view at Skates. We went to a retirement party at Skates just before Christmas. ..

Point Isabel in Richmond has been on my bucket list since I moved to San Francisco 20 years ago. FINALLY, I got to meet my friend Linda for a nice walk and some water action for my dogs. It’s such a beautiful place. Afterwards, we met our friend, Debbie, at..
