An Unexpected Ferry Ride

Though I have lived close to the San Francisco Ferry Building for years, I have normally taken the BART (subway) to go across the Bay to the East Bay. Due to an unexpected strike by the BART workers, I got the chance to hop on the boat on July 4th, and ferry across to Oakland’s Jack London Square, an invigorating place for arts, dining, music as well as total relaxation!
