Hidden Alley in Oakland

Oakland, CA – Temescal Alley  is a really cool alley that was a former horse stable in the early 20th Century. Located in North Oakland this historical alley has been transformed into art galleries, cafe, fancy donut shop, boutique, bookstore etc  few years ago.  When I stumbled upon an unexpected and hard to come by parking spot by this alley I just had to grab it. I spent few moments browsing, exploring  and taking pictures!  And proud to say that this is my hood! And prouder that I muster enough willpower to  avoid getting the donuts from Donut Dolly. (The picture of the donuts was from a previous trip during my birthday a couple of years ago!)  It was a beautiful sunny afternoon in my neighborhood.
