Berkeley Pier

Address: at the very end of University Ave (towards the bay), Berkeley, CA

It's super hot in San Francisco today -- 97 degrees!!! It's almost unheard of in SF. Glad that I decided to work in the office instead of telecommuting from home otherwise I'll be like being baked in oven.

We took a break from the heat by walking down Berkeley Pier after dinner. The original Berkeley Pier is about 3000 3.5 miles long but most of it is broken and the remaining walkable section is about 3000 feet long. You'll be in the middle of the SF Bay when you hit the end of the of the pier. It offers great view of San Francisco. It's a great place for fishing too. I've seen people caught sting rays, crabs, catfish, flounder there.
