farewell, OB

I always get nostalgic the week before a big move, but who doesn't? Practically the entire time we lived in San Diego, Drew and I both strongly disliked it (note:: I did not say hate. I'm trying not to make any of my Californian friends angry).

Just not our style, I suppose. The noise, the confusion, the smog, it was all too much to bear. A wonderful learning experience, a good start to our lives together, but never a permanent home.

However, the last week spent in San Diego was a wonderful one. I got to be with friends, took time to say a proper goodbye to Ocean Beach, and allowed myself to look back over all we had been through in the last year and a half.

So, here we are. A mixture of the old and the new, all photos I have taken from OB and the surrounding area. Here's to the noise, the confusion, the smog, the palm trees and the endless summer.

Before we left, we went down to the beach to watch the full lunar eclipse in all of its beauty. Truly worth waking up at 4.45am. It will be missed, but only in properly measured doses.
