The 53 Town Pledge:


Saranap - Vine Hill

Last update: October 20, 2020

Saranap 05/18/20 (pop 5,202) Used to be Dewing Park, which I never heard of either. Both Walnut Creek and Lafayette have offered to annex the place which, like the other three CDPs nestled between the two, posts no signs to let poor travelers know when they're entering or leaving the place. Again, I'm trusting my GPS. See the sign at the bottom asking that we "support Saranap Village"? The Village is in Walnut Creek, not Saranap. Go figure.

San Miguel

Tara Hills 8/29/19 (pop 5,126) Other than to simply say "yeah, I been there" I don't have much to say about many of the Census Designated Places of Contra Costa County. And this is one of them. Not a bad place, just nothing but houses and a nice marker at its entrance.

Shell Ridge

Vine Hill 10/20/20 (pop 3,761) Fine dining in Vine Hill, another CDP with, as was once said of Oakland, no "there" there. But apparently they have fine dining. Too bad I'm not a fan of jalapeños.
