The final day in Berkeley arrived. I walked with Micah to her first class before revisiting some of my favorite campus spots and soaking up the moments. Then I walked home from Telegraph-ish up Durant instead of Bancroft.
My aunt came. We stuffed my suitcase and bicycle in the back of her Subaru again and headed for- where else?- pizza at Cheese Board, and then ice cream at Tara’s.
It was a happy/sad feeling once we got on 580 and started heading east. On one hand, I was going home, and in time for Thursday night college group at that. On the other hand though, I’m always sorry to leave the bay. I could stay forever.
