November 19, 2012. My daughter came home from college for Thanksgiving, and my dad flew up from Long Beach for a few days to see our place in Hayward and surprise my son for his birthday. It's been great having both of them here. Yesterday, my dad and son went to a Raiders game and my daughter and I hung out in Oakland until it was over. I found this spot to sketch, and was able to sketch most of it until a few police cars showed up and apparently were making an arrest. I felt like it was time to move on, so we took off. It's always a bit awkward sketching in neighborhoods. People get suspicious.
