Imagine standing on the beach at night, watching the waves crash on the sand, illuminating a bright blue glowing light. Each time the (water/wave) turns over and causes friction with the tides beneath, it appears as if a dancing glow-stick were hovering on the shore. Don’t be mistaken, you’re not at a rave. This is just a phenomenon of nature.
The Red Tide is caused by something called Lingulodinium polyedrum. Haha, good luck trying to pronounce that one! It’s almost as challenging as trying to say medical terms. Anywhoo, Lingulodinium polyedrum is a bioluminescent phytoplankton. These microbes are not harmful or dangerous, they’re simply growing in abundance and when friction is occurring, the stress (in scientific terms), causes them to...

On days like today, I would probably avoid going to the beach. There’s a crazy storm along the souther coast of California which is bringing rain, thunderstorms and wind gusts up to 35mph. In my 28 years, 21 of those years which I have lived in Coronado, I can honestly say I have never seen weather quite like this.
I’ve never experienced this degree of stormy weather in Coronado because the last time this happened was back in 1983. According to weather.com, this storm should last through Saturday. As I mentioned in my previous post, I’m really enjoying this gloomy weather as I get to cuddle up in my blankets and watch the storm unfold.
I haven’t left my house yet today. But then again I don’t need to. Having big windows...

Need a break from your daily routine? Find some solace on the Coronado beach. The fact that this beach is sooo big means you have lots of space to work with. Of course I’m sure you won’t be the only one on the beach but the dunes and spots in between the main walkways are always good secluded areas.
I’m not an encourager of playing hookie but should you decide to take a day off from work, the week is definitely the best time to go to the beach. As most kids are in school and the majority of the town is wrapped up in the daily grind, there will be no one crashing your lovely day at the beach.
Bring a towel, a book, some sunscreen, snacks and some water. These things will be enough to last you a good couple of hours. And if you need...

The beach at night is one of my favorite things. Not only do I love to look at the stars but being on the beach at night when no one else is around brings a sense of euphoria. The salty ocean air combined with the melodic sound of crashing waves and a slight ocean breeze. The cool sand between your toes and the teeny dots of lights that rest on the horizon.
I’m not sure that I would feel such peace with the beach at night if it weren’t for my sister. When we both lived at home in our teenage years, we were best friends. We still are to this day because she is the type of older sister that everyone wants. If you have an older sibling then you may know what I’m talking about. I idolized my older sister, as most younger siblings do and was...

Returning to Crown City

Years ago, when I lived cities other than Coronado (New York City, Sacramento, London, Holland), I always looked forward to visiting my little hometown. Now that I've returned, I realize that when I visited Coronado, the town had different meaning to me - I was living nowhere near the Pacific Ocean, my house was at least 2 hours from a beach and the year-round temperature did not hover around 70 degrees.
Each time I returned to Coronado, I looked forward to seeing my little island through the airplane window. I would intentionally pick the left side of the plane (seats ABC) so that as we glided over Balboa Park and floated alongside downtown San Diego, I could catch glimpses of Coronado. If it was daytime, I could see the sun reflecting off the water, helping accentuate the...

Marilyn and The Beach

Marilyn Monroe is perhaps one of the greatest faces and figures from the 1950s. Which is why it was such a big deal for her to film the movie classic ‘Some Like It Hot’ in Coronado.
If you google her name followed by Coronado, you will find picture upon picture of Marilyn standing on the beach in front of the Hotel Del.
As expected, in these photos, there is a sea of people surrounding her, trying to get as close as possible. The celebrity status and [in my opinion] her attractive shapely body drew the crowd to the beach, creating what I would imagine a giddy vibe. Fame does things to people and having Ms Monroe on the sandy Coronado beaches certainly brought a lot of excitement.

Yes, that’s right, skimboarding. Not until a few years ago did this activity become popular which is maybe why some haven’t ever heard of it. It’s like surfing but different because you ride a skimboard along the shore. As we all know, surfing takes place in the ocean’s waves, sometimes in deep parts of the sea or barrier reefs. Instead of taking such great risks, skimboarding is a safer alternative.
In Coronado there are several surf shops where you can buy or rent a skimboard. The shape is more similar to a boogie-board than it is a surfboard. It's nearly half the length of a surfboard, and smaller than a surfboard A skim board typically is made of wood, shaved down until about an inch thick. Its soft and smooth...
