The San Diego Effect

The above image, Danny's Moment is also available as a Desktop Background

Today's song is A Beautiful Morning, by The Rascals, released in 1968.

On Sunday Sherry and I visited with our friend Lil Artus and her son Danny. They arrived from Chicago last Thursday to warm days. They are staying with Lil's brother and wife about 35 miles north of here.

Neither Lil nor Danny had ever visited San Diego before. So we took them to the San Luis Rey de Francia Mission for a taste of old California. Then we took them to the Oceanside, California Pier where we saw seals and dolphins dipping in and out of the surf.

Then it was time for some lunch and we treated them to some Mexican cuisine at Annita's, where we enjoyed the food and conversations. Afterwards we stopped at Carlsbad Beach where we watched the San Diego Effect take full hold of Lil and Danny. He discard his shoes and socks and ran off to enter the waves. Nature must have rewarded his presence because all the time we ere there, the birds came by and several pods of dolphins leaped out of the water in front of our view. We never witnessed that behavior in dolphins before in the ocean. It was very cool!

We ended up at our house for a few hours while we relaxed and talked more about the experiences we shared over the many years. In the early evening we took them back to rendezvous with her brother and wife to prepare for the rest of their stay. We will see them again next when we visit Chicago in 2010.
