You should be having fun! Like laughing and letting yourself feel that tummy tickling sensation, swinging and basking in childhood glee, while remembering that favorite swing from way back when.
The hard part here, yes there is a hard part… the secret!! How to find this swing. It is one of the hidden Secret Swings located somewhere on the coast in San Diego. Should I tell you how to find it? Would you want to come swing with me? Because there’s plenty of room for two. And then after our sides hurt from laughing, tell me all those stories, those favorite memories of that swing from back then? You and that swing… And how the neighborhood boys threw snowballs at you while you were swinging as high as you could, which almost made you fall off. So then you got so mad you went and got your friends and you made hundreds of snowballs and you threw those perfect snowballs back at those boys at extreme speed and with perfect aim? Yes stories like that… it’s a great place to sit and talk while looking at that view… oh that picturesque view… is just breathtaking facing La Jolla Cove.

Legend has it that a local artist takes the swing down every once in a while and creates a new one and that he/she sometimes even moves it to a different location. Once there were 3 of them next to each other. I’ve seen this one dressed differently and with different messages on it, but who this secret artist is is still a mystery.

Love and appreciation. It’s the little things …

No one is supposed to talk about where it is, secrets are supposed to stay secrets after all, but maybe a few hints might be okay. Shh… don’t tell anyone. But if you ever happen to go to Birch aquarium in La Jolla, which is definitely worth a visit, and …

… park all the way at the end of the parking lot, then you might see this tiny little wooden bridge, that you could cross if you’re a little adventurous. Then climb up the hillside until you see a really big beautiful tree…

Now go out there and have some fun!

  2. Imagine the fun of the little secret, hoping no one finds the hidden gem. I look at the images of the empty swings and wonder – where are those who would be free to let their hair down, to glide in the breeze, to caress the warmth splashing the outer senses. Lovely. πŸ™‚
