Good Afternoon, Good Evening & Good Night

We are beginning to settle into our new San Diego abode.



We are also starting to think we have been cast in 'The Truman Show'. We have been overwhelmed with the neighbors stopping by to introduce themselves & even got a plate of brownies from a fellow ward family across the street. Chad keeps checking the front door for more treats. We have collected 5 telephone numbers of ward members who have offered us advice on the best beaches, told us we were welcome to swim in their pool & practically offered us the code of their garage to access their beach gear.

Other observations on our first week:

*Everytime I get out of the car or walk out of store while the sun is shining, I expect to be hit with a wall of heat & 107 degrees. Now, I am thoroughly shocked when I don't have to wear shorts everyday.

*We were missing our dear Vegas friends & needed a break from the the endless boxes. We grabbed a rotisserie chicken from the store & ate our dinner overlooking the Pacific from La Jolla. Not too shabby!

*People live outside....garage doors open, riding bikes, walking their dogs.

So far....so good.....

I love Portland - but your post did leave me a bit green with envy.
San Diego is seriously perfect!
(they were nearly perfect but you being there pushed them over the top!)
