Spent a glorious couple of hours at Oakland's Jack London Square near the waterfront. It was sunny and very warm and people were strolling back and forth at the Sunday Farmers Market. Finding shade was my most important thing I needed to do, that and a place to sit and sketch-the ground gets hard fast, though. I needed my portable chair. I didn't bring it because I like to travel light on my sketching excursions.

Saturday, August 22: I hooked up with the East Bay Sketchers at Preservation Park in downtown Oakland. Sixteen beautiful old Victorian houses - saved from demolition - inhabit this park. The site includes lush gardens, period park benches and more. Not only does it enable visitors to step back in time, back to the humble beginnings of Oakland, it serves as a venue for meetings and events like weddings. It's also a great place to sketch.
