Ever since starting this journal, it has been so fun and sweet to look back on this year and see the adventures shared with friends and loved ones. Temescal Alley is tucked towards the north side of Oakland, that is filled with local shops and creative vibes. A group of us who shared the same interest in photography decided to take a little adventure around our local neighborhood in Oakland! We first picked up some refreshing cold brew at The CRO cafe, and windowed shopped at Walrus, where they house and repurpose vintage items. Afterwards, we spent a good while going gaga over the beautiful air plants and succulents at Crimson Horticulture Rarities. I was sold and immediately took a little air plant with me! We then ended on a sweet note at Curbside Creamery. If you're looking for an afternoon date with friends or a significant other, Temescal Alley is a great place to stop by!
