Healthy air on the water.

Today I enjoyed a long walk from downtown San Diego to Liberty Station then back again. It felt so good to be near the water that I even took a short detour to visit Harbor Island.

Given the current coronavirus pandemic, I noticed an unusual number of people out on San Diego Bay, on paddle boards, in kayaks, breathing in the healthy fresh air. There’s a new local regulation that recently went into effect during the COVID-19 crisis. People are now allowed to recreate on the water. And those engaged in safe social distancing aren’t required to wear face coverings. They can fully enjoy San Diego’s watery paradise.

As I arrived at Liberty Station, I noticed many stand up paddleboarders embarking on a journey from the boat channel. They headed under the Nimitz and Harbor Drive bridges and into the sunlit marina behind Harbor Island.

I live in downtown San Diego and love to walk around with my camera! You can follow Cool San Diego Sights via Facebook or Twitter!

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

  1. Are you required to wear masks in public? That isn’t a mandate where I’m at now and I’m glad. I refuse and it is harmful for those with chronic lung problems like me. I just read an article by a respected scientists who has lung problems herself and has done many many years of research on virus’s and she confirmed the validity of my refusal to wear a mask.

    Glad you are getting out and enjoying yourself.


    1. You must wear a face mask if you come within 6 feet of others in public, or where you work. If out jogging or walking alone, many people wear a covering ready around their neck and lift it up when others approach.
