Port of Oakland
We'll meet this Saturday November 10 at 9:00 AM at Middle Harbor Shoreline Park in Oakland. This park has great views of Treasure Island and of ships coming, going and getting loaded. There is a two-story observation deck that offers shade, protection from the wind, bathrooms and water. Also ample parking. Here is a link to something I painted while on that observation deck a couple of years ago.
Directions: From 80, go south until you hit the 580/880 fork. Stay to your right to get to 880. Take the very first exit off 880, which is the West Grand Ave/7th exit. Pass Maritime St, then the road curves to the left, to Middle Harbor Rd Park. Stay on the road (don't turn right onto 7th), make a right at the park's south entrance, and you will see the USS Oakland's Mast in the center of the circle. Stop for a second so you can locate the entrance to the smaller parking lot to the left of the mast, which is where we'll meet.
