Our El Camino condo overlooks the Navy SEALs complex. Some months ago a new light was installed on the back of the guard house on Coronado Beach. The light has no shade on the top so the glare is visible to everyone on that side of El Camino and the light is on all night.

Resco Instruments, founded by Smith in 2008, is a warrior-tested American watch brand, built right here in Coronado.
