Subject: Our New Home.... 2302 San Juan Ave, Walnut Creek, CA 94597

Here are some pics of our new place... its an old, funky house that has a lot of Maine backwoods charm...

Photo Album, 2302 San Juan Avenue Walnut Creek California


the house is umbrella'd by a HUGE eucalyptus tree being at least 150+/- ft back from the road, our yard is completely fenced in and it has off-street parking, although we are just about in the heart of downtown Walnut Creek... it is only a 5 min. walk to the subway station as well as a 5 min. drive to the freeway ramps... also, because of the weather pattern out here electricity and gas bills are miniscule, especially for a house like this one that also has a working wood fireplace... we can just build a small fire to take the chill off, which is usually all it is when temps get no cooler than 50 degrees... the rooms are smallish but they're workable especially since there is much more living space than just the typical standard rooms... there are many nooks, crannies and cubbyholes that we are going to make very good use of, both inside and outside of the house... there's at least 2 exterior "patio" type structures, one being covered and the other not... its going to be a lot of fun... the landlord has said that i can paint, wallpaper or do anything I wish to the house to make it my home... he has already offered to get paint for us and has already started gathering some necessary furniture that he knows he has kickin around at his other rental places... beds, mattresses, microwave, fridge, new washer/dryer, etc. etc etc... people out here are so polite, courteous and most of them go out of their way to help their peers... its absolutely amazing!! I cant believe how blessed we are to have found this place...

Click this link to be taken to a google map of where we will be calling home... because I have paid for 3mths at my post office box, please keep sending our mail to my 1728 Ocean Ave Box 236 San Francisco, CA 94112 address although our new physical address is: 2302 San Juan Ave., Walnut Creek, CA 94597-3050

This house also has a skylight about 5' long just above an indoor planter!! It is the coolest thing I've seen in a long time... there are so many positives about this house that I will just have to take pictures when I get back to the house in the morning... I'll send them along once I find an internet signal... please remember, internet will not be as readily available to me for the next several days, possibly weeks, depending on the red tape I need to navigate in order to get high speed internet installed in my new home... i did find a weak internet signal from another resident that I can access from my backyard, which I will do as often as I can manage, but without that I will be offline for the most part... however, my phone signal is still very strong so feel free to call if you like...

Until later,

Gina & Jenna
