Berkeley Kite Festival バークレー・カイト・フェスティバル

This weekend (7/30-7/31) one of Klondike’s usual off-leash playgrounds, Cesar Chavez Park, morphed into the annual Berkeley Kite Festival. Kites and the scent of fair food filled the air,  booths, people and well,  food, some of it dropped roasted meat, filled the sidewalk. I bet you can figure out Klondike’s focus.


Stopped by at a booth run by some friends from the Japanese community. They have incredible large format kites up every year. Klondike managed to sample their grilled chicken. He wonders if he could have some more, please.
日本の大型凧もあります(上がってる写真がなくてすみません…)。お友だちたくさん。焼きおにぎり、チキン、イカ、コーン、などなどごちそうさまでした〜! クロンダイクも落っこちてるチキンを味見。IMG_0114s

Klondike getting attention from new friends. Always. 新しいお友だちです。IMG_0131s

Shuttle bus back to the parking lot. We think this was Klondike’s first bus ride. He acted like he did it all the time. バスなんていつも乗ってるぜ、みたいな態度で特設駐車場まで行くクロンダイク。 IMG_9011s

Check out the Pyre on a pier! Just before leaving we walked out on an empty small boat launch near the remote parking lot.  What a beautiful day. 特設駐車場の隣のボート船着き場。いい日でした。IMG_9018s


Klondike enjoying his brand new Big Barker bed, a birthday gift from us. That’s a large bed; they also make a XL and a giant size.  疲れて昼寝。このベッドはつい先日のお誕生日のプレゼントでした。前のやつはぺしゃんこにへたってしまっていたので。IMG_0093s
