Downtown San Diego has been my home for many years. My online activities reflect my love for writing, blogging, walking and photography.

  1. I don’t know if you’re an early morning person, but if you go to Spanish Village early in the morning, before it opens, you can often find shop owners and shopkeepers who are only too willing to let you in for a private tour of their shops. I go between 6:00 a.m. and 9:00 a.m. At 9:00 a.m. I head on over to the Zoo for three hours.
