A rare sight in Coronado. This ‘pier’ or what once was a part of a boat landing harbor, is usually fully covered by sand or barely visible. Sometimes though, after a good storm it’ll reveal itself like it did today. It is located on the beach right in front of the famous Hotel Del Coronado on Coronado Beach. The specific historical facts on it are hard to find and a bit of… Read More

There’s so much to do in L.A and planning a stay there can be overwhelming. There are the obvious choices like the theme parks most people like to visit, Hollywood, Walk of Fame etc. But if you’ve read any of my other posts you know that I prefer less crowded places and those are hard to find there. I lived in Venice once (yes, very crowded) close to the Marina and I… Read More

No one wants to look at a small mark that spoils an appearance of something that’s expected to be beautiful. Off to the trash you go.  Not this Sand Dollar though.  He got… Read More

If you’re in San Diego this is a must see! Go on a clear day and you’ll never tire of the most amazing views of San Diego, the bay, Coronado, the open ocean and Mexico. If you’re lucky you’ll spot dolphins and even whales.   The drive to the monument is beautiful in itself and features Fort Rosecrans National cemetery and a drive through the military base where you can spot models of navy… Read More

Most people I know hate rainy days.  I absolutely love them.  They’re so rare around here and when they finally happen they awaken me. They cheer me up.  They make me want to run outside and jump in every puddle. Today I got up early, went outside and I felt it, gently and softly land on my skin, as the coolness of the wind surrounded me. I inhaled that fresh, crisp and… Read More

Torrey Pines State Natural Reserve in San Diego is a wide stretch of land surrounded by La Jolla and Del Mar.  It’s one of my most favorite hikes in San Diego and you’ll see me here at least once a month. It offers 8 miles of trails and an amazing view of the ocean.  Parking can be hard to find but come early and enjoy lesser crowds.  Start by hiking up the… Read More
