On Friday, I went to Point Richmond with the four-year-old. I’d googled “kid-friendly hikes in the East Bay” and found some trails. But then Emilia said she instead wanted to explore a new neighborhood, and I read that this area of Richmond, tucked away between I-580 and San Francisco Bay, is full of fairy houses. You’ll find them up and down Washington Avenue, on both sides of the street.
When we lived in Sebastopol, I began to collect fairy garden houses, furniture, and other decorations, which I placed in one of our raised beds and under our big oak tree. Here in Berkeley, they’re now in a little wine barrel display on our deck, next to some kale and chard I’m growing.
The fairy houses, stores, and other buildings of “Little Point Richmond” are pretty adorable. I don’t really take photos much anymore when I’m out and about but I couldn’t help taking pictures of everything we walked by.
I know it’s been awhile. I’m still here. Hope you’re all well.
