RoadTrip’2018 (part 2): Sun, Heat Laguna Mountains & Palm Desert – No More June Gloom!!!

Our last Road Trip was a joy: Heat, Sun… just awesome. So, once again it was cold and overcast in San Diego so we hopped in the car and headed inland and north, up thought the Laguna Mountains, toward the desert! Love It!!!

We take a road trip up through the Southern California “hills” – not really mountains until you get up closer to Mt. High Ski resort but this is still in the San Bernardino national forest.
I didn’t take a whole lot of video but wanted to check in and share some of the beauty of a few of the areas near San Diego.

Hope you’re Living the Dream!
Thanks for watching.

Commuting to San Diego from Coronado


Check out the latest video: https://youtu.be/OKE_GBXfefw

sponsored by AMAZING
I got up about 7am, left the house about 8am, took the ferry from Coronado Ferry Landing to Downtown San Diego/Broadway Pier and over to a meeting at a local Westin Hotel.
It was a great way to inject a bit of “vacation” into my morning commute – not something that is easily done in many cities.

I guess that’s why its called America’s Finest City. While I may not agree with that label, San Diego really has been a wonderful place for me to call home for about 30 years now. It has offered me the ability to earn a good living, grow spiritually and emotionally. Indeed the weather is what many people refer to as “perfect”. For me it is still a bit too cold and May and June marine layer/cloud cover that lingers to at least 11am most mornings really wears on my energy but it *IS* indeed home. I’m very lucky to be alive, let alone be living in San Diego.
Hopefully you enjoyed the little outing this morning. Thanks for joining me and Thanks for Watching!

Live the Dream!!

Coronado 2018: Walking to the Beach, Living the Dream


Check out the latest video: https://youtu.be/Q8mpeMiEX_g

You may not know that the 2 worst months of weather in San Diego are arguably May and June. When you think of San Diego, I’m sure many of your think: Sun, Beach, Perfect Climate… etc.
Don’t get me wrong, it IS a great place to live.
As you may have heard, You are able to be outdoors 90% of the year and its hardly “Freezing Cold”.
BUT, for two months a year, most mornings at the coast have a Marine Layer (a.k.a. FOG if you are from anywhere else on the planet) that hangs over the beaches and so we have what’s called:
– “May Gray” &
– “June Gloom”
So, when there is a day in May where its 80 degrees before Noon, I take advantage. I still say that ambient temperature is a contributing factor to the level of disappointment someone may experience if they are susceptible to Seasonal Affective Disorder… I believe there is no coincidence its abbreviated “SAD”… yeh… indeed.

So, hope you enjoy our quick walk to the beach and a few selfies on the rocks in front of the Hotel Del Coronado (a.k.a. “The ‘Del”)

Thanks for watching. Tell your friends! šŸ™‚
Best,

World Famous San Diego Zoo – 2018

San Diego Zoo fun!!! One of my buddies has an annual family pass for the San Diego Zoo and the associated attractions/locations. For example, the San Diego Zoo – Safari Park (a.k.a. The Wild Animal Park — what most people know it as…) With that, he gets coupons from time to time. So, TOM! Thanks for sharing your 50% off coupons. We had a great time at the Zoo!!

One of the many great things about Living in San Diego is that the “commute time” to attractions like Sea World and the San Diego ZOO is under 15 minutes from downtown or Coronado – Good stuff!

Thanks for watching – Hope you enjoy!
Live the Dream.
