Sometimes I find it hard to believe that San Diego has been my home for a little over 15 years now. In a way, it feels like it wasn’t that long ago when I drove cross country from Connecticut to California. San Diego has grown on me as my new home over the years. Besides the worrisome wildfires, random earthquakes, and lack of greenery, there’s a lot to like about San Diego and its surroundings. San Diego is my home and here are a few things I enjoy about it. Remember you can click on each image to enjoy a larger view. San Diego is home to the big waves of the Pacific Ocean under a bright blue sky.
San Diego is home to a large agricultural community, including a lot of citrus (lemons and oranges, mostly).
San Diego is home to not just one single season year round, but also Fall and its bold colors.
San Diego can even be home to frost in the winter, especially inland. This is as much cold as I can take!
San Diego is home to beautiful sunrises, especially in the winter.
San Diego is also home to beautiful sunsets. This one is from Christmas evening 2012.
San Diego is home to hundreds, probably thousands of different species of animals and plants. It’s also home to the most amazing topiary I’ve ever seen (view more topiary at the San Diego Botanic Garden here).
And as of this week, San Diego is home to some beautiful pear blossoms in Balboa Park. You can view more photos of these pear blossoms in a post next week, so I invite you subscribe to this site if you haven’t already.
I’m happy to call San Diego home.
