I arrived back from San Diego late Sunday night. I had a wonderful time. I coach voice, speech and dialects for the theatre and this trip brought me back to our former home and my former employer. I was working on three Shakespeare plays to be produced this summer and the days were long but envigorating. This was the surrounding scenery:
I got to see some old friends, some who work at the theatre and some who are there as actors in the Shakespeare. Besides the work, the thing I most remember is laughing like crazy. Laughter really is the most wonderful thing, It makes the shoulders drop, shooing away tension and worries.
I walked from my hotel to the theatre every day and passed beautiful flowers:
I passed the dog park where my dogs used to frolic and which now has a fence around it. How that would have saved me from freaking out when my dog Winston used to take off and run down into the canyon because he “smelled” some critter!
Now the fence goes all the way around the park and keeps the dogs in.
This beautiful fountain was right outside the door to the rehearsal rooms:
And last, but not least, the Pacific Ocean! This is what I miss most about San Diego – I love where we live now with all my heart, but if we could just plop the Pacific Ocean down right here in upstate New York it would be PERFECT!!!
I have more photos which I will post in the next few days. I go back to San Diego in June for 10 days. Right now I am just happy to be home with my husband and my dogs. And, I get to garden!
