Berkeley Rocks

I've said that often... and today got a beautiful book from Carol for Valentine's Day!

The title?

Berkeley Rocks published by Ten Speed Press.

When we stroll around Berkeley we're always amazed at the graceful stone walls... and huge rocks homes are built on or near. This book celebrates the rocks of Berkeley.

The table of contents includes development in the Berkeley Hills, landscaping with the Berkeley Rocks, landmark rocks, climbing, and finding the rocks.

It's a real treat for me to see so many of the streets in our Thousand Oaks Berkeley neighborhood (Vincente Avenue, Menlo Place, The Arlington...) featured, and to read comments from many of our neighbors.

Carol was really excited when she showed me the map on page 50. It clearly showed Gibraltar Rock in our neighbors' yards... and within our "viewscape". When our gardener David Mc Crory of Planet Horticulture suggested taking down the Loquat Tree in our yard I thought it was a brilliant idea... it opened up our view of Gibraltar.
