Bay seniors interested in dumbfounding their friends and family might consider taking up the precarious art of rock balancing. These slanting, gravity-defying, Pixaresque sculptures look like they are about to crash down any second. They are very carefully created in what their makers, a global community, call “working meditation”. There’s a class this Saturday from 11 to 1 at Crissy Field just east of the Warming Hut. It’s free but reservations are requested. And yes, sooner or later, your sculpture will fall down.
Bay seniors whose dachsunds have replaced their children might be interested in the bizarre Easter Egg Hunt this Saturday in Danville. Instead of bunnies there will be canines and instead of actual eggs there will be faux ones filled with doggie treats. If you are bringing your own dachsund to participate the planners expect an RSVP. Free. The site, Oak Hill Park,has plenty of trails to walk your wagging beloved.
Bay seniors interested in taking advantage of their insomnia might want to head to the Oakland hills before dawn this Friday to watch (weather permitting) a total lunar eclipse. Witness the moon pass through earth’s shadow on the Observation Deck of the Chabot Observatory from 2am to 5:30am. Astronomical experts will be on hand to answer your questions. $12 for non-members. You’re advised to arrive with your own binoculars, blankets and warm clothes.
