San Diego apartment and a wild fire!


Yesterday we had alot of work to do..some repair work and this wonderful San Diego apartment...its almost downtown but in a residential area, great views of the San Diego airport, and harbor....I really like these older well maintained apartments as they are very spacious..large rooms, and lots of old beautiful woodwork throughout...the kitchen was small but fabulous with new cupboards, even a wine rack and all new appliances....
The views were very nice
if you click on it, you'll be able to see a Navy ship.....

Going home, the traffic slowed down and stopped...then we crept along at about 10 to 15 miles an hour for about 10 miles outside of Temecula...I thought perhaps there was an accident but it turned into something a little more..as we got closer, we saw alot of smoke, and then a heliocopter overhead dropping water...there was a fire on the south side of the freeway, high up on the hillside....here are a few photos I was able to get..









We haven't had many large fires this year although its "fire season" here in Southern California....perhaps the fire department has a different policy now and knocks these small fires out asap because they had the big plane from Hemet dropping fire retardant as well as a smaller plane and the helicopter dropping water. Sometimes before, I think they let them burn if the fire wasn't in a residential area...as you can see, fighting these kind of fires are difficult to fight with the steep slopes, plants and boulders....


Its been a busy week with lots to do...this weekend I'm going to catch up on house and yard work..got the washer going now....nice to have some home time...our youngest son has gone ocean fishing with friends and says he wants to bring back a big fish..our oldest has to work today..so the house is very quiet which is a nice change......
