Coburns in California
We had a wonderful time in the U.S. from 2002 to 2005.
Here's a brief record of our great adventures.
Our place in Spyglass
We lived in a house on Spyglass Hill in Oakland.
It was close to Alice & Henry's school and it had a fabulous view of the San Francisco Bay:

Greetings from California!
Plenty of other news and pictures from our great American adventure
Hear all about:
How we first settled in Life in the Masonic Lodge.
Henry Gives a Reading
at Cody's Bookstore, Berkeley, of his contribution to The Dayton Tribune edited by Vanessa Thill and Kelly Reed (flanking Henry), followed by a signing by all the child authors.
Alice had a sculpture selected for an exhibition by her art teacher, David Hershcopf (Hershey to his friends). The opening party was in a gallery in Berkeley. Absolutely fabulous dwarlings.
Obviously when you go for the full American experience, you have to get into the whole baseball thing. Henry wore the number 8 shirt of the Zephyrs, a Little League team of the North Oakland South Oakland (or NoSo, obviously). He's making a play at the plate with the best of them.
