I am a California girl through and through, who was transplanted to Arizona about nine years ago. Although I do love it here and have come to think of it as home, it’s still so strange to me to think that my children are Arizona natives. For some reason that seems so crazy to me. So here is my girl, in my native habitat, in which she is out-of-place. For her, taking a trip to San Diego is a novelty, something new and exciting. For me, it’s a trip back in time.
Interesting fact: Early settlers in the San Diego area planted huge amounts of eucalyptus, intending to use the fast growing trees to make railroad ties. Unfortunately, the wood was too soft for that purpose. But you can still find them growing everywhere.
Also interesting: My daughter almost never gets hurt, but she did manage to skin her knees on the way to this location. There were a few tears but, true to form, she was laughing and exploring in no time.
