We travelled around the Bay to Mountain View and up the other side to Oakland to check out the USS Hornet and Jack London Square.

Mountain View, California

While I had a contract with a company in Mountain View for nearly a decade, I never actually visited it for more than eight years after the contract ended. It is just outside of San Jose on the southern end of the San Francisco bay.

Oakland, California

Oakland is directly across the bay from San Francisco and is home to a busy stretch of street-running known as Jack London Square.
