It reopened and became a army hospital. The trip so far was amazing!! | found at

12: Saturday , December 15 On my second day in Oakland, when i was waking up, I to find a place to eat breakfast. I found a place just five miles away from my hotel called Cock-A-Doodle Café .

It was about 12:30pm by the time i found out that you could go swimming on Lake Merritt. It was a medium size lake. It wasn't very busy so it was perfect and the water was super nice too. It was turning night time so I had to find a place eat for the night. I chose a Barbecue place called Phat Matt's BBQ. After I ate that amazing BBQ I headed back to my hotel for a good nights sleep! | found at

13: Sunday, December 16 Its my third day in Oakland and its the most fun vacation I've been on in years! Today I'm planning to go to the Oakland Zoo for my last full day here in Oakland. I've herd a lot of good things about the zoo, like the new giraffes exhibits. I think the best part of the zoo was the reptiles exhibits. I think the reptiles were the best because they're so different from any other type. Second would probable be the Amphibians because there were so many different kinds of them to look at. My third was probable the birds because they're so colorful. After that long day at the zoo, i think its time to go to sleep and get rested for the next day of traveling. | found at
