Border Field State Park, Friendship Park

Posted by George J Janczyn on August 19, 2016

While hiking in Border Field State Park on April 28, 2013 we happened upon a Binational Day of the Child event at Friendship Park. Below are several photos I took while there (a certain now-disgraced former San Diego mayor was there but no need to post that image).

You might want to check the new story about the border wall with some historical background just published by Voice of San Diego: http://www.voiceofsandiego.org/topics/news/45-years-border-wall-friendship-park-changed-fellowship-hasnt/.

Carlsbad desalination plant tour (photos)

Posted by George J Janczyn on February 23, 2016

Here are photos I took today during a guided tour of the recently opened Claude “Bud” Lewis Carlsbad Desalination Plant. The tour was conducted by Jessica Jones, Community Outreach Manger for Poseidon Water. Additional tours will be held in the future, although many of them are already booked. See Poseidon’s website for tour information (http://carlsbaddesal.com/visit).

Photos can be clicked for an enlarged version, which may be needed to read the posterboard descriptions. The last photo shows everyone receiving a glass of newly desalinated water.
