More on Things to Do and Think About

Since my last post business has gotten incredibly busy - good news, I think, but I suspect you can tell since nothing has shown up here for some time...not a good thing.
I have been very busy showing property although buyers are still taking lots of time to ponder their options or even to decide if now is the right time to buy.

Many of the buyers are coming from out of town and want to move here either permanently or to have second homes. With the weather we have been having in last week or so can you blame them? So much of the writing, when I have had time, has been about things to do.

The last article about fairs and festivals was fun to write, and I am making an effort to get to some of these. One was the Rancho Santa Fe Art Affaire - you can read about that here.

I was out previewing some properties for some buyers from New Mexico and from Arizona, and decided to stop by the new Crossings at Carlsbad golf course which just opened in early August. This public golf course has been in the making for 17 years, wit lots of controversy (the over-run on the budget, for one). Here are my impressions.

Part of the business has to do with a colleague of mine who is out of town for several weeks and who asked me to cover his business, which I am happy to do. He is a surfing enthusiast and headed to Bali for 2 and 1/2 weeks of surfing. I can't imagine. But while I am not a surfer I have written a couple of things recently - one post was about surfing here along the North County coast in general (stop by to listen to the popular Beach Boys tune). The other was about the Surfing Museum in Oceanside, which was great fun to visit and worth a trip if you haven't been there.

I've written quite a bit here about life in California after moving here from Boston. I recently wrote more on my thoughts on this topic - check out my musings...

It's hard to believe the Labor Day holiday has passed, all the kids are back in school, the weather is feeling like fall, and another weekend has arrived. Make it a good one.

BTW the Fall Home and Garden Show is being held this weekend at the Del Mar Fairgrounds if you have nothing to do. It's worth a least once. Hours are Noon to 7 TODAY, 10 - 7 Saturday, and 10 - Sunday.

Don't forget the Wavecrest Woodie Meet (mentioned in a previous post) that occurs Saturday at Moonlight Beach in Encinitas.
