We took a tour of Berkeley campus, and saw the famous Tyrannosaurus Rex

Interestingly trimmed trees around campus

Any guesses as to what NL means?(it means Nobel Laureate - they get their own parking spaces at Berkeley) We ate lunch here. Ann's kitchen in Asheville (Eric's mom) is much better!

At beautiful Point Reyes - the highlight of the trip for me. The blue markers show where the San Andreas fault is.At the lighthouse, which was unfortunately closed.

Picnicking along the trail

This part of the trail reminded me of the last scene in the movie "The Sound of Music"Self-portrait
