San Diego: It’s Been A Place Called Home

A Place Called Home

San Diego has been a place I’ve called home for such a long time. My Mom says that we lived in Oxnard for a spell, but I never really remembered living there. My earliest memories were in Coronado. That’s where I remember growing up as I have early memories of Pre-school and Kindergarten at Glorietta Elementary School.

The one thing I miss about San Diego is that there used to be these ferry boats between Coronado and San Diego; it would cross the San Diego Bay between the old ferry landing and downtown San Diego. And they would transport automobiles back and forth. This was all before the San Diego-Coronado Bay Bridge was built, and back then the only other alternative was to go all the way around the bay via Silver Strand, Imperial Beach, Chula Vista and National City.

Anyway, San Diego is one of the largest cities in the U.S. now. Second largest in California (behind Los Angeles). The traffic here can be horrendous in some places, and we have almost 1.5 million residents now. Still, it’s a beautiful city with a nice temperate climate (although we’ve been experiencing our share of the California drought).
