It will improve the area around #lakemerrit by expanding park land, improving water quality, calming traffic, and enhancing pedestrian bicycle facilities. #oakland #construction #bayarea #parks
I painted it. I framed it. I sold it... But here is the kicker, It was painted during one of those classes that you pay to partake in, and are really more about drinking wine with friends than they are about the paint. I hope the buyer didnโ€™t think it was original. ๐Ÿ˜‚ Was it wrong that I sold this? I would love to know your thoughts?
Pretty much...

I only hold relationships with people who feel like sunlight โ€” whoโ€™s souls shine bright & warm everyone around them. Relationships that light you up when you feel dim. Relationships that warm eachother. My people know me, respect me, lift me up,encourage the best of me & love my messy parts. Hereโ€™s to all the warm souls in my life, thank you ๐Ÿ’› . . . ๐Ÿ“ธ @brianagardener Space: @cielcreativespace Sponsors: @womens.circle . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . #soulsisters ๐Ÿ‘ญ #womenscircle #bayarea #oakland #oaklandca #eastbay #soul #oaklandphotography #oaklandphotographer #berkeley #localarts #portraitphotography

Do well in school and maybe your dad will get you a brand new Chameleon too! One outstanding student was diligent enough at the desk that his reward is an excellent new mountain bike ready to rip some dirt. #handsomeandpowerful #cyclesportsoakland #localbikeshop #lakemerrit #grandave #grandlake #foxshocks #maxxis #santacruz #raceface #stravacycling #newbikeday

. โ˜ ๏ธ Has anyone drowned in Lake Merritt?โ€จ On December 30, 1900, 10-year-old Roy C. Fernald was playing with friends on the 12th Street Bridge when he slipped and fell into Lake Merritt.ย  The boy could not swim and was already underwater when Thomas H. Dunakin, a contractor riding by on his bicycle dove into lake and rescued Fernald, who was resuscitated on shore. Two young boys, Whitney Stowe and Arthur Drew, were saved from drowning in Lake Merritt when their boat capsized in a 'sudden squall' on March 25, 1904.ย  Ambrose Carpenter and Stanley Hess heard the screams and rescued the two boys. On May 2, 1908 two boys in a canoe on the north side of Lake Merritt collided with another canoe carrying another two boys and both overturned in the water. Although the two boys in the second canoe, 12-year-old Rufus Timm and playmate Ralph Grimes, were eventually rescued by other boaters, 15-year-old Paul Timm of 817 - 20th Street and 13-year-old Paul Jones of 803 Market Street, drowned in the lake. Two sisters,ย Lyba Sheffieldย andย Nita Sheffield, described as 'comely and athletic girl students of the University of California,' saved two men who were drowning, Harry Leinert and Leo V. Belden, whose canoe capsized in a breeze on Lake Merritt. Leimert, a teller at Wickham Havens real estate office, and Belden, an employee of the Oakland Bank of Savings were floundering in 15 feet of water when the Sheffield sisters, who are skilled oarswomen, steered their rowboat over and rescued the men. The young women were all around athletes who held several trophies, had the distinction of swimming across the Golden Gate the previous year.โ€จ Two young men and a boy nearly drowned in Lake Merritt on March 6, 1927. The three were rescued by Traffic Officer A. H. Gladdin, who tossed them a life preserver as their boat overturned. An unidentified man was found drowned in Lake Merritt on November 5, 2003. Police believe the man may have slipped on the wet shoreline near the 500 block of Bellevue Avenue. Source: Oakland Wiki ( swipe for more info and pics ) Pics Source: public domain .

Looking for the treasure at Lake Merritt #lakemerrit #eastbay #sooakland #eastoakland
Had a Inspirational Day Full of Spirit and Connections with All Walks of Life! I was awestruck by this beautiful spot by Lake Merritt with the enchanted flowers โ€œBirds Of Paradise.โ€ I did a sun filled play on the selfie and was pleased to discover a green Orb floating in my photos. I believe that Magic and Will are aligning to my highest purpose with my Truths as well as Creative Gifts. Orbs are spiritual gifts of sorts caught on film. Hereโ€™s a definition of Green Orbs- In spiritual practice, green is associated with the heart. It is also associated with nature. Green orbs are sometimes thought to be an indication of the presence of a human spirit as opposed to one that was never on Earth in human form. Likewise, green orbs may represent love or oneness with nature. Blessings to All! Please follow my other Instagram @whatzyamov3 Or #whatzyamov3 To share our Dances with all of Humanity! Much Love!!!! #kattholladay #greenorbs #spiritualnature #whatzyamov3 #magicalgirl #lakemerrit #oakland #orbs #oneness #trueself #blessed #todayatapple #iphone10x #magicalshots #happydays #wonderfullife
