November 6thVIEW OF WILDCAT CYN from BONITA RD. San Pablo. Turn onto San Pablo Dam Rd from 1-80 (north of El Cerrito) to the stoplight just beyond the carwash and turn uphill to the right onto Morrow Drive. Turn left onto Hillcrest and drive past several other streets to Bonita Rd. Turn right on Bonita and go almost to the end. Take the last left turn and go to the end of the street. Plenty of parking and a sidewalk where we can sit!

November 13thVINEYARD ON CHURCH LN, San Pablo. Suggested by Ikuko

This is the end of the season and the vines should be turning golden. Take San Pablo Ave north from El Cerrito to Church Lane and turn right (just before La Strada restaurant) about 2 blocks. Turn right again and take the first entrance into St Joseph’s cemetery. Park at the bottom of the hill near the office. Look up for the view of the hills behind the vineyard.

November 20thCREST AVE, Pt Richmond. (East Richmond Ave, then south on Washington Ave to top of the hill.) Site requested by Sue Collins

From El Cerrito, take Cutting Blvd or 580 from Berkeley to downtown Point Richmond. (turn right to avoid going thru tunnel) and if you are now on E Richmond Avenue, follow it.  Turn south (left) at the first street that looks like it will go a distance (Washington Ave.).  When you reach the crest of the hill you are at Crest Avenue.   Turn left and drive to the end of the road.  Google maps would be a big help.


December & January are the months when we HOPE it will rain so much that we are not able to go outdoors! Last year the weather was lovely & sunny. Once again, we will schedule Blake Gardens for these two months. Go when your Holiday schedule permits.
