That was after Ros and I went to Kamloops for a BCTF meeting that she attended, and (above) visited Libby and Dave Denbigh in their new home.

To catch up a bit. Ros and I joined Nick and Naomi at the Otter Lake campground in late August. It wasn't far from Coalmont, where this picture was taken. This is an area that once was busy with mining. Very pretty, hilly country.

I will try to embed a slideshow of our staff day. It was at Tsawwassen, in a house in the GVRD park on Boundary Bay that we rented. The whole staff (except Eileen) was there. We follow it with a barbeque at John and Barbara Struthers. I took fewer pictures than I usually do! Here they are.

Saturday night Chuck and Dena returned home so we had time to visit with them a bit, and Leah and Jeremy, before we left Sunday.

In front of Spoule Hall is a disc to mark the area. It reads, "This soil an dthe air space extending above it shall not be a part of any nation and shall not be subject to any entity's jurisdiction." Not quite sure where they get the authority to proclaim that...

Spoule Hall is an administration building where the 1960s "Free Speech Movement" began. Now very calm.

I expecially liked this picture of a football player getting bandaged, which dates to 1898, I think. Somewhat different outfit than today's protected players!

Later on Saturday (we're up to August 18) Bob took us on a tour of the University of California campus in Berkeley, which is quite lovely.

On Saturday we visited the Berkeley Flea Market, held each Saturday morning in the parking lot at the Ashby Street BART station. This is a drumming group that performs each week.

We had a lot of fun. The boys, Tristan and Zach, were there too, but not for this picture before we left. When we returned to the station, we found the train had run into a truck and wouldn't be operating that evening, so Mike kindly drove us back to Berkeley.

On Friday, we took the train with Marijo to Davis to visit Mike and Lori and family. This is the train station.

Thursday evening Ros and I went into San Francisco and ate at Matthew Guelke's "Lettus" vegetarian restaurant. Matthew is the son of our good friends Conrad an Anthea.

Later, I walked around Jack London Square, coming across the sculpture near a Barnes and Noble bookstore. Not quite sure the point of this. Neat eagle though.

On Thursday, I cycled in to Oakland to visit Mike in his office at the SEIU headquarters. (Service Employees International Union). We went out to lunch.

This was a Hindu scene, I think, of a fight between a hero god and a lot of biting monkeys. Which illustrates how we all feel sometimes, I think.

The museum was full of great treasures, like this one. Beautiful stuff. I've forgotten who this was, but I think it was from Burma.
Posted by Neale Adams at 11:22 PM
Then we went to the Asian Art Museum in this building nearby. A daycare group happened to be marking by in this picture. All the kids were holding on to a rope.

City Hall is a grand building, and has recently been renovated. Ros is going up the grand staircase, at the top of which Marilyn Monroe and Joe Dimaggio were married. There were weddings going on when we were there.

In San Francisco we got off BART at the Civic Center and headed towards City Hall. The booths were for the Farmers' Market, which takes place downtown on Wednesdays.
