Remembering balmy San Diego on a beautiful winter day in Bloomington.

San Diego, California is another beautiful city, but Bloomington, Illinois is fairer, especially in winter.

 

I am warm inside, working at my computer, with a winter wonderland outside, listening to smooth jazz by Peter White, San Diego, the lilting kind of jazz that they play like a dream along the oceanfront.  Yesterday, in the long line to the counter at the post office, I met a woman who still lives in San Diego, and we passed the time reminiscing.  She too takes the various urban walks that I used to take with the group, Walkabout International-San Diego.  The Walkabout guides always knew just the hidden place or unusual fact to please the group.

Peter White’s San Diego description:  “City of San Diego, The San Diego Trolley, A view of a plane flying into San Diego over Interstate 5 South, The San Diego Zoo, San Diego Disney, The Sea World, and A surfer at Black's Beach*. Have a nice day Chao!!”

*  Black’s Beach is a nudist beach.  Glancing down on it from the high, friable cliff above, I saw one old male nudist displaying his stuff, and half a dozen middle-aged, fully-clothed men striding about with cameras.  No way in the world would I go down there.  Why do the perverts have to mix into everything?  Nudism I can understand, but flaunting and stalking?  Eeew.
