Hello Charlotte, welcome. It is good to have you here. I lived in Alameda 30 years ago and really enjoyed the area.

I was in the Navy of course. I lived in El Cajon, Chula Vista, San Pedro and Alameda all in a matter of 4 years. I think San Pedro was the best because after a hot day in the Long Beach Naval Shipyard it would be 70 degrees there. And it was a short 10 mile bike ride to get to the boardwalk in Redondo Beach and I could look upon all of the suntanned beauties on the beach and wish that was me.
Since the Navy, I also had a job as a contract IT engineer for the Immigration service and I went all over the state; Fresno, San Bernardino, San Francisco, Los Angeles and more.
I think the strangest city was Fresno. It seemed that the city and people could not decide if they were part of California or of the west. And San Bernardino was the saddest since the city was bankrupt.
I guess most of all I loved hiking in the mountains. So much to do in California, especially after growing up in boring Texas. 🙂

Well, I’d have to say that my favorite place to be in California was San Diego. My family didn’t stay there long, only about 2 years. Yet the temperature always seemed comfortable, the city of San Diego was beautiful, and the seafood and Mexican food there was delicious. However, my dad was in the Coast Guard and this meant that every 2 or 3 years my family moved to some other part of the country usually it seemed to be on the opposite coast from where we were. I think we moved to Maine if I remember correctly. Anyway, when we found ourselves in Concord, CA. in 1984, my dad decided to retire and we’ve lived here ever since. And though it isn’t San Diego, we fell in love with the area.
