Two of our closest friends from Kansas City, Kenny and Mary, have been here visiting for the last 24 hours. It's been a long time since we've seen them and we had a blast catching up.
Yesterday, after a little shopping and then cocktails, the four of us went to dinner at a restaurant at the Berkeley Marina. Mary W. thought it would be fun to be there on the day they announced Scott Peterson's ultimate fate. After all, the marina is where Peterson put his boat in the bay on his mission to dispose of Laci's body. Of course, as it turned out, the jury didn't announce their decision yesterday, but we had a great dinner.
Afterward, we took a long walk out to the end of the Berkeley pier for some really great views of the San Francisco Bay and the cities around it. The pier goes out into the bay about a half-mile straight toward Alcatraz. Like I really needed a closer look at that stupid light.
