Crown Memorial State Beach is operated by the California Park District and the City of Alameda. It is on the San Francisco Bay, and just across the bay from San Francisco.
We went in to Alameda today to return the granddog that we had been dog sitting for the last week. Said dog lives with her parents in an apartment across the street from the beach.
This is the beginning of the best time of year to be in San Francisco, and around the bay; usually, September and October are superb, with sunshine and warmer weather.
