Day 049: New Discoveries

142day049Every now and then I run into something amazing and wonder, "How have I missed this?!"  I've been up and down Park Street in Alameda and have never noticed this beautiful theater.  I really love the old style ones like this, with the big marquee.  I think this one in particular is super fabulous.  I love the pale blue marquee with the cream facade... and the details are wonderful!  This is the architect in me coming out.

All in all, riding the ferry was beautiful! The weather was great, and there were great views of the city and bridges!
