San Diego has been terrific. Having lived in cold weather climes most of my life, it was a welcome change to be able to enjoy the beach in late summer.
I took a walk on the pier and watched the surfers and body boarders ride small waves. It was about 79 degrees the day I went, and just a little breezy. The California mid day sun made it comfortable to be ocean side. I went on a Saturday and there were lots of sunbathers and window shoppers along the beach strand. I’m going to need to spend more time visiting the stores. There are some cool hippie looking stores that sell organic and natural clothing and knick knacks that I want to check out.
I moved into a 2 bedroom 2 bath condo near the Mission Beach area. The condo is nice and clean, and the neighbors seem friendly. A couple of girls came over to introduce themselves and offered to take me sightseeing to get to know S.D. better. Oddly, the condo has a faux fireplace that keeps the place warm. I say oddly, because afterall this is sunny San Diego and I can’t see the need for much extra heat. Maybe there is a brief one month winter here.
