Treasure Island Fun

We headed to Treasure Island this weekend for a flea market, and ended up stretching our legs afterwords with a little soccer. I love Treasure Island, which sits in between San Francisco and the East Bay, for its incredible views of the city. It's really kind of a.... errr..... hidden treasure (ar ar) of the Bay area ;)

Captain liked the flea market - but mainly just the dog treat booths ;-)
Think he liked the soccer the best.

Hope everyone had a great weekend too!

Reflections on Owning a Dog

There are so many moments when I am so thankful for Captain, and so I wanted to do a little writing about it. Including the phrase "owning a dog" in the post title seems not quite right though- because of course I don't really "own" Captain. I'm his parent in every sense of the definition other than the biological one.

Beautiful Briones

On sunny Saturday, we headed for the hills of the East bay to do some hiking. I can't believe we haven't made it to Briones Regional Park before this- it's a short drive from where we are, close to San Francisco, Berkeley, and Oakland, and it's a beautiful spot. I was happy to discover what a great hiking area Briones is, with both wide open rolling hills and fields and beautiful views, and also plenty of shaded trails (important when it can get so hot in the East Bay!). Tons of gorgeous space for off-leash running. We did a 7 mile hike around and up the hills, and were all- even Captain-relaxed and content afterwords!
