OUR NEIGHBORHOOD. Berkeley is a suburb of San Francisco, about 30 minutes driving or 40 minutes by train. We live on a quiet street in a very safe neighborhood, walking distance from restaurants, theaters and cinemas. Our city offers many rich cultural activities.
Berkeley is famous for its restaurants and our neighborhood is known as the "Gourmet Ghetto." The world famous "Chez Panisse Restaurant and Cafe" is a 10 minute walk from our home. Founder chef Alice Waters is generally credited with inventing "California Cuisine,” a blend of the French, Continental and American traditions, emphasizing fresh, local and seasonal dishes. There are at least 50 restaurants within a ½ hour walking distance from our home, which feature Asian, Thai, Indian, Mexican, French, Italian, vegetarian and vegan dining.
Berkeley is the home of the world famous University of California, which has 50,000 students and a beautiful and park-like campus, 15 minutes walking distance from our home. The University offers numerous opportunities for dance, theater and musical performances and a contemporary modern art museum.
There are two local theater companies of excellent reputation, both a 20 minute walk from our home. Berkeley Rep and Aurora perform traditional and innovative contemporary plays year round except August. In addition, the California Shakespeare Theater is 30 minutes by car and presents two Shakespeare and two classic plays each summer from June through September in an outdoor amphitheater, which the Wall Street Journal called the most beautiful outdoor performance space in the United States.

Your teenagers will enjoy exploring the University of California campus and the numerous shops that cater to teenagers and young adults. For children of all ages, there are numerous city parks, the closest of which is a 5 minute walk from our home. Located 15 minutes from our home, the 10 square mile Tilden Regional Park offers numerous hiking and biking trails, a botanical garden, and a beautiful 18 hole public golf course. For younger children, there is an animal farm, a carousel, and a little steam train you can ride on. Everyone will enjoy Lake Anza, a man made fresh water lake with a designated swimming area, and dozens of picnic sites.

About Me
Buddy is a retired attorney (67); Jodi is a retired teacher (65). We have three married adult daughters who live nearby and three grandchildren. We have traveled extensively in the United States, in particular the East Coast and the Southwest. We have traveled extensively in Europe in Great Britain, France, Italy, Spain and Israel. We love the outdoors (hiking and biking), the theater, movies and fine dining. We also love our home in Sea Ranch, 110 miles north of San Francisco or 2 1/2 hours by car from Berkeley. Use of the Sea Ranch home is included in rentals of 1 month or more.
