Leaving San Diego…memories since 1970

Posted by on June 4, 2013

JULY 4, 2013.

San Diego will always be least for a very long time!

Beginning our Adventure is bittersweat. San Diego will always be home to us. 

I CAME TO SAN DIEGO IN 1970, after graduating from the University of California at Santa Barbara.  I decided to stay a while…and my stay turned out to be more than 43 years!

Approaching graduation in Santa Barbara and not having any interest in getting a job just yet, I decided that continuing my education would “buy me some time” before I had to join the ranks of the employed.  So, I enrolled at California Western School of Law in San Diego.  This was so long ago that the school was still located on a bluff in Point Loma overlooking the Pacific Ocean. Not for about three more years did the School move downtown to its current prominent location on Cedar Street. Anyway, this turned out to have been genius on my part: I enjoyed law school, I enjoyed living in San Diego, I enjoyed putting off the inevitable lifetime of working and when it finally came time to “get a job” I was lucky enough to do so right in San Diego. I practiced law here for 34 years before retiring and starting to think about this “Great American Adventure.” home

My travel blog really begins with leaving our ranch in San Diego’s back country, but just for old time’s sake I decided to post some pictures of San Diego to remind me of all the wonderful years I spent here…forty three years to be precise! So check out my San Diego and Deerhorn Valley picture galleries.
