And Now For Something Different

Lou and I were on the road about 10am. First stop, get gas. The car seems to like the stuff and the gauge had been in red for a while.
Next stop, Target in Redwood City. We've been looking for reading lites for our bedroom and Lou had seen some she liked at that Target. We've stopped by others as we pasted them and none had lites. Odd. With the lites successfully obtained after having to point out the charged us twice what they were marked and then getting the correct price, we were then back on the road. We headed North stopping for breakfast in Millbrae for breakfast at Neil's Coffee Shop. We shared a breakfast of homemade corned beef hash, home fries, eggs and pancakes. More than enough for two. Then we were back on the road headed across the Bay Bridge to Vallejo to the Solano Fairgrounds and an RV show. It's one of those one dealer traveling RV shows but it was indoors with lots of RVs. Most of the stuff, frankly, is very poorly constructed. We did like the Fleetwood Discovery 39V, one of their new full body slide models. It's not going to happen, but is nice to dream.
We headed home about 4pm and traffic was backing up so we pulled off into Berkeley at University Avenue. We stopped at Spenger's Fresh Fish Grotto for Dinner. Again, We shared, fish and chips and some clam chowder.

Berekeley 4th Street
We then took a walk around the shops nearby on 4th street. This is a nice area with some interesting shops. Traffic was still heavy so we went downtown to Shattuck avenue by the Berkeley University Campus. This area has really gone downhill from our last visit. It now being 7pm we hit the road for home.
