Monday night, after we arrived in Sacramento, we walked under the freeway to Old Sacramento. Old Sacramento is really just a tourist trap. Sure, it has the old buildings and wooden sidewalks, but I somehow doubt the tattoo parlor is original.
But on a Monday night, it was very quiet, so we walked over to the river, and then went to dinner at California Fats. Here are some pictures of the river and of a beautiful fountain at the restaurant. The fountain is three stories, and my pictures suck, but you can get an idea. It’s flat etched rock that spans the three levels of the restaurant, with a piece at the bottom with the word Peace. There are palm trees on both sides. It really is gorgeous, and we got to sit right beside it.
