Another month has slipped away already? Summer is halfway over? The days fly quickly!
Well, I suppose it’s time to once again turn the clock back and recall what I was blogging about five years ago.
In August 2015 a whole bunch of interesting things were going on in San Diego!
In Old Town the early trades of San Diego came to life again, and Mark Twain and other famous authors seemed to rise from the dead! On the Star of India, the world’s oldest active sailing ship, an extraordinary Moby Dick reading marathon activated the imagination of those who listened. In Balboa Park, a special exhibit retold the history of the Spanish Village colony of artists, and suffragettes went on a march! At Qualcomm Stadium, the Chargers were still in San Diego and putting on their annual FanFest!
And much more was happening all over the city, from Hillcrest to Chula Vista! Of course, I also saw a lot of fascinating activity downtown during my walks.
It was one very fun month!
