Live in Coronado

Sometimes, I come across fiction written either about Coronado, by a Coronado author, or possibly both. Coronado Dreaming: The Silver Strand Series by Greg Brulte Love isn’t dead… it’s just unconscious. Two soul-mates meet on a perfect San Diego day, and before they have a chance to see each other again, Greg, through a quirk of fate, finds himself in the strange, dreamlike world of a coma. A world where all possibilities coexist, and the future, past and present are all part of the bizarre quantum multi-verse that blends time and distance, pain and laughter, love and destiny. A twisting, many faceted journey through the diamond of emotion, Coronado Dreaming takes hold of your imagination and guides you through eternity like a Cheshire cat… grinning [&hellip

The day started off with rain, but in the last few hours all we’ve had is a gale blowing from the ocean. If it’s not secured, and it’s light weight, it’s been moved away from the normal spot. My bird feeder was sitting on a post, but since the birds ate all of the food the empty plastic house was no match for the wind. I saved it, before it flew too far away, into the drink… Now it’s secured between a barrier of potted plants, refilled with the last of the seed, but the bbq cover got blown off, despite the rock. I need to go look for it. There’s a giant bottle out in the channel, or at least that’s what it sounds [&hellip

Nope, not a disaster of any kind, just a little rain – finally – as this full dinghy can attest. Love the images the camera can find on any beach cruiser ride through Coronado Cays. Nothing like clear skies, sunshine, blue water and mild temperatures. Life is so damn good

On January 1, 1959 the Movie “Some Like it Hot” was released. This movie not only showcased the excellent screenwriting directing skills of Billy Wilder, but also showed that Marilyn Monroe was more than just a sex pot. There was magic on the screen as Marilyn was surrounded by genius actors and comedians, Tony Curtis and Jack Lemon. Coronado was the ‘location’ for much of this film, and the Hotel Del Coronado was center stage. They shot all the scenes, ‘outside’ but the interior shots replicated the Hotel Del very well. Besides shooting in the exterior of the hotel, they also shot footage on the Coronado Beach. Pick up a collection of Billy Wilder films on Amazon: Considered one of the best American Comedy films [&hellip

By Heidi White To get the most out of your summer visit to Coronado Island, the first thing you need to realize is that Coronado Island actually isn’t a real island. Rather the City of Coronado is located on an isthmus – which is a long narrow strip of land usually with a larger land mass at one end, often surrounded by water. In the case of Coronado, the narrow strip of land is called the Silver Strand, and the larger land mass at the tip is the Island part of Coronado – typically called ‘the village.’ This is important to know because so many people only visit the main ‘Village’ sections of Coronado and miss out on all the cool parts farther south down [&hellip

Apparently, it’s the owners responsibility to remove the boat. Live In Coronado is trying to find out what happened to the owner. For now, at least, the shipwreck in Coronado remains a mystery

He rides through town pulling a cart behind his bicycle. He always wears the same outfit, sort of yachtsman/chimney-sweep, and he waves his paint brush of choice – a broom – in the air with one hand. While Coronado sleeps – he mysteriously creates his temporary art. His paint is sand, his brush is a broom and his canvas is the somewhere in the streets of Coronado. This rare daylight footage was taken quickly as he drove past the Coronado police department towards the Coronado library. Note if you can that he’s got a little light on his broom.
