Abuse of service dog status opens all sorts of doors... But it sure is rude!

Posted on February 3, 2014 at 5:00pm 2 Comments

Is it just me or is anybody else even the slightest bit put off and annoyed by this increasing trend of people passing their dog off as a ‘service dog’ just so they can accompany their owners into restaurants and grocery stores?

First let me say I am very aware and completely support the certified and trained ‘service dog’ to assist disabled folks and people with legitimate needs. I have a dear friend who has a ‘service dog’ who can detect the onset of her young daughter’s…


Community Voices: The Circus Tent Has Pulled Up Stakes... Til Next Year

Posted on September 26, 2013 at 12:00pm 3 Comments

Yesterday afternoon, I escaped from the monotony of my computer and household chores, for a leisurely walk on our beach. It was a bit blustery with a little autumn chill in the air. But nothing a ball cap and long sleeves couldn’t remedy. And of course, my trusty iPod was tucked securely into the pocket of my cargo shorts, cued to my favorite beach tune playlist.

Kicking along through the chilly shallow water I was struck by the beauty of our near empty beach. Just a few weeks ago…


Community Voices: Another "entitled" dog owner...

Posted on June 18, 2013 at 10:30am 0 Comments

In spite of the six or so signs that clearly ban them, dog owners in growing numbers are adopting our beautiful Star Park as, not only a convenient bathroom and recreation area for their canine companions, but now apparently it's a grooming parlor too.

This photo is only a portion of a much larger area where…


Sidewalk Biking on Orange Avenue - Liability for City?

Posted on January 22, 2012 at 12:00pm 43 Comments

It's Sunday morning just before noon and I just watched an adult riding his bike on the sidewalk in front of Starbucks run down a little girl. And the cyclist and his female companion, who was also riding her bike on the sidewalk, was absolutely indignant that the kid's parents would let their daughter unsupervised on the sidewalk.

Why is it the "I'm entitled" attitude has become so accepted and our local law enforcement turns a blind eye to this? Yeah, this is a quaint little place…

Danny, Shelly here. Great photos! Hoping that you and yours are well. We continue to enjoy a lovely life in Capo Beach, Hawaii and regular visits to visit our parents in Coronado. I hope our paths cross in the not to distant future.

Outstanding sunset of Dec 9th.  Your pics are noteworthy and much appreciated.  Hey say hello to Beau Bucklew for me.  Our family knew those brothers..I last saw Buck in 1997.

thanks again

Hi Dan, I love the photos you post!  Do you do family photography/beach shots by chance?  Looking for a photographer as mine is out of town for the holidays.  If not, could you refer someone?  Thanks, and I look forward to your next stellar photo :)

Thanks for your reply Dan.  I'm not sure if you will be available on such short notice as the only afternoon we have available is tomorrow, Friday, Dec. 23.  My "extended" family does not all arrive until tomorrow around noon and then leave early Monday morning.  So let me know if that time frame, by any stretch of a possibility, fits your schedule. I was thinking pre-sunset when the light is perfect at the beach. There are a total of 7 of us and what we would really like is the images on a cd so we can have them printed as we chose them either on paper or canvas.  But since you note that family photography is not your usual, let me know how you might package it (also let me know what your fees would be).  You can email me at .  Thanks again!  Caroline
