Where is OB/San Diego? I did not know what OB stands for...




OB is Ocean Beach. It is a neighborhood of San Diego.

Those who live here are called Obecians. It is said that "OB is more than a place, it is a state of mind." Others say, "OB: where the trash meets the sea!" Their are OB T-shirts, car stickers, and we have many surf shops. At one time it was thought of as the Haight-Ashbury of San Diego, though now it is rising up from War Zone to lower middle class. We have a very long pier, some reasonable surf breaks, awesome sunsets, Nati's, Hodad's, and are under the takeoff path for Lindberg Field. If you ever are curious to find us, take Interstate 8 until your wheels get wet and you'll be there...that is physically. The State of Mind may take a bit longer. But, bring a cooler with ice, limes, tequila, cointreau and totilla chips down to the beach; play some wobbly beach volley ball; and about sunset you will begin to enter the Obecian State of Mind. People talk to each other here. You will have no problems making friends.





It sounds pretty close to heaven in many ways. Relaxing and a few things. The times I have been to SD I have not been able to figure out where I was, I doubt I ever have seen OB. I think I wanted to find a lace like that and I missed it. I will look at the map sometime and who knows- if I ever get time to get away ...then maybe...



I just started teaching today and It is wearing me out for now but God is good and this challenge is a wonderful step. I am so happy about it. I am teaching art at a high school for summer school and it is accelerated- meaning we only have 2 weeks of 6 hours first session and the same for second session. VERY BUSY.

BUT OB sounds like a neat hidden destination and worlds away from this dusty, dry central valley. I take it that is where you live... I will try to see it someday then. Does that make you sort of a "hippie?" since it used to be the Haight Ashbury district? or are you there as part of the UPGRADE?

--hide--


I guess I'm sort of an OB misfit. I don't meet the demographic since I've never done drugs and am not hippified. But, Obecians tend to accept everybody, except chain stores and fast food establishments which are resisted enthusiastically. Being a sailor alternating between work and adventure, perhaps I sort of qualify now, at least better than I did when a full time working professional. I consider it an honor that my neighbors have accepted me, despite my being straight and square.

Good luck in your new job!

I lived in Santa Barbara for many years. When I saw San Diego during that time it appeared so brown and not as lush as the coast up north. Especially what appeared to be La Jolla. I never got to the beach, though except when I got to Coronado for a Choral Conference and for another conference I went to which I cannot recall. How close is OB to Coronado?

35 minutes from Sacred Heart OB to Sacred Heart Coronado. I know because I used to sing for Holly at Sacred Heart Coronado which has a wonderful choir. I did it because my Naval Academy roomate (known as your wife in Navy talk) was singing there and volunteered me as a tenor, which they were in need of at that time. Singing for Holly was a privilege. (He later married one of the members of the choir.) (Female members; this was pre-Obama!)

Well here in Michigan I found out that Hell Michigan was 92 degrees and we were 95 so technically speaking we were actually hotter than hell. Now that's pretty bad, wouldn't you say?

Here in Trinidad & Tobago, we are expecting a tropical depression. Lots of thunder and lightening here today!

It might even make a fun thread. People have done comedy and play threads in the humor room where they make up stories together, a group of characters and so on! I hope you have your parasol with you open during your spring walks...

I can't see me with a parasol, but it really is perfect weather for strolling in the evening. It would be a good thread, sightseing in our own towns. Sometimes it's nice to remind ourselves of how much we have in our own back yard!

I'm originally from 12.5 miles away from where I currently live. wink We had an unusually hot stretch of weather in March (several days of temperatures in the 80s and 90s) which caused many plants to come out early and many fruit trees to bloom. Unfortunately, those fruit crops are a loss because of subsequent freezes. The weather has continued to be uncharacteristically mild and even hot, which causes everything to come out early. weeping

I think this year has been an early year. It feels like summer is being thrust upon us. Sunrise
