For the first chocolate of the day, after a long walk, I had a very nice variation on an ice cream sundae at Skates on the Bay restaurant near the Berkeley Marina. I had a table by the window with views of San Francisco Bay, the Berkeley pier, and the Golden Gate Bridge in the distance. (Picture shown is from the restaurang parking lot.) It doesn't get much better than this. But, I had more chocolate to eat!

Today was the last day of Chocolate Egg Appreciation Month (Day #32 to be precise), and I finished up the month by appreciating some Dove "Silky Smooth Dark Chocolate Eggs." These solid, egg-shaped bullets of substantial, dark chocolate goodness were satisfying.

Finding a new chocolate egg to try for a month had been wonderful, but now it's time to jolt forward into another aspect of chocolate with Organic Chocolate Theme Week, starting tomorrow.
