Friday Flashback #062 …

I’m fascinated by these lifeguard stations that dot the Southern California beaches. They remind me so much of the lunar landing module from NASA’s moon missions, but they also seem kind of like lonely sentinels. This one is in La Jolla, a place I visit far too infrequently. I have to go back soon for a long walk on the cliffs near the beach.

My fall 2018 trip to the United Kingdom included a few days in Brighton. I was brought up visiting Atlantic City in the summer, so I’m always curious about beach resort towns, and I had heard and read a lot about Brighton. It’s still a little bit dodgy in parts, but I found the pebble beach and the vibrant arts scene to be absolutely amazing. It took me most of the day by train to get there (I had to come back to London from Wales, and then go London to Brighton, which is a trip that takes only a little over an hour), so I was tired and cranky when I got there, but this beautiful sunset was one of the first things I saw, so that made everything better.

This is my preferred walk these days: Along the Coronado waterfront, under the amazing Coronado Bridge, whose gentle curving sweep takes my breath away no matter which direction I’m traveling in (to Coronado, from Coronado, or under the bridge, like above). From there I continue on the bike path past the golf course on to Glorietta Blvd., and up into the Village. I love the fact that I live in an area that calls its downtown area “The Village.”
