Coronado tops this year’s list of best beaches, compiled annually by “Dr. Beach” Stephen Leatherman.
The Coronado Historical Association’s Gala, “Celebrating Coronado History”, Saturday night at the Coronado Island Marriott was a grand evening indeed. Everything from the placards on the tables for the silent auction to dessert was first class. Particularly, Gerry MacCartee and Nancy Cobb’s historical presentation was fun, educational and entertaining. Fundraising appeared to be very successful at the live auction also. Look out the rest of Coronado’s many swank fundraising events. The bar has been raised! Nancy Helsper and Carol Raiter as co-chairs outdid themselves for a worthy cause.
Each day we are inundated with digital messages and sound bites clamoring for our attention. Imagine our surprise and delight when we received this graciously hand-written note of appreciation from long-time Coronado resident Jeanne Shoemaker.
Thank you Jeanne, you truly brightened our day.
As you can see it was a great day on the water in San Diego Bay. The company boat is a Kayot S245, and unlike most of the other toys (I mean company assets) it does not have a name yet. Is that bad luck? Any suggestions? Maybe Miss KenPubl or ToBook. Kinda of a play on words there if you didn’t notice.
Speaking of Fat Tuesday and life’s a party… be on the lookout for “The Prince of Coronado” currently making the rounds in Hollywood. A small hint for you, as to what the heck is he talking about. It revolves around a previous company asset called BESTRQZ, and some related adventures.

Down by Radars – Really low to the beach. One copter was practicing dropping off guys hanging on to a long rope while the other was engaged in landing and take-off maneuvers. Is this why the traffic lights were out at the other end of the strand?
Coming Home to Coronado
After taking my son up to LJCD everyday for school I return over the SD-Coronado Bay Bridge to Nado. Turning left on ‘A’ Avenue (after 8am of course) and up to the stop sign to cross 4th Street. There everyday is an older gentleman standing around his house doing chores or sometimes just standing on the sidewalk. We always wave hello to each other and he always seems happy. Great way to start the day. Pass it around world. We could use it!
