Hello Fellow BLoggers/Readers:
I was able to visit Palo Alto Downtown today, again another coffee shop. We are so lucky to live in such a wonderful area of the Bay Area. Where else can we live on the East Bay and enjoy the activities and glorious coffee shops and restaurants just twenty minutes away! No snow! No hassles and not much traffic. Here in our local area of Fremont, we seem to share our homes with many professionals that work in the corporate world on the Peninsula and make a commute. There are not many locations around the world that alllow such variety and diversity.
My family made the move from the Peninsula to the East Bay about 11 years ago! It was one of the best moves we made. The schools were great for my children and I have made so many wonderful friends as have my children. Life long friends that don't come around very often. I remember taking my daughters and son on hikes on the weekends when they were small. Coyote Hills was one of our favorite spots to hike and bike. Quarry Lakes became a favorite later. As the kids grew, we found our love for visiting the downtown areas of Palo Alto once again! Gosh, a mere 20 minute car ride, and you are walking amongst the scenic downtown. We are blessed to have such great options to travel to. The Prolific Oven served a tasty cup of Sumatra and sweet pastries. We get the best of all worlds. Fremont offers a slower pace of life and great family environment, and yet we can hustle over to downtown Palo Alto for a peek back into variety of coffee shops, restaurants and shopping. We live in such a great place.
