Rainy Day in Oakland

In early April I had the good fortune to visit Lake Merritt in Oakland, California.

My plans of rowing and visiting with gondoliers were changed by the downpour of rain, but I managed to take a few post-worthy photos.

The originals are much more dreary, the images you see here have been lightened up a bit.

A very clever and artfully painted doorway on the dock.

The gondolas float under canvas and a hard roof. A few lifeboats share the dock as well - these are the type used for recreational rowing.

Here's a better look at the roofed dock.

To read my text-only post from the visit there on April 4th, go to the post A Rainy Day Around the Bay.
