Wandering Nights of Ocean Beach


Time for a rewind, till almost a month ago in San Diego, California. The place, Ocean Beach

The place is Ocean Beach, a wonderful beachside town in Southern California. The time is of two weekday nights, with a few hours to spare before some business downtown. The temperature was fairly warm, with the nearby breeze of the mighty Pacific Ocean nearby. The time was well spent, with light drinks, ruminating, and small talk with local strangers. Such is the wonderful atmosphere of Ocean Beach, where the time is just before midnight.

Here are some pics I took between destinations on the main Newport Ave. Look…

A cool two-dimensional display, guarding a parking lot


A very colorful hostel, of which I would like to stay at someday.


A colorful place to express one’s image.


The upper interior of The Electric Chair, seen through the front window.


The front of the famous Burger spot, Hodads…right before closing.


A peek inside Hodads before closing. No space is wasted…


Another peek into Hodads before closing…


An awesome window display of one of many shops on the main street…


Another store display of Ocean Beach, but on the outside.


A cool neon sign…


An alleyway by a bar I visited. Johnny Cash and Jimmy Hendrix welcome you.


And past the stores of and streets of Ocean Beach, is an amazing pier that doesn’t close. More on that, I will share in another posting…

  1. Hmmmm….could I Google this? Did Jimi Hendrix and Johnny Cash know one another? Or they both liked Ocean Beach? Or they both liked alley murals? Or the artist just likes Jimi and Johnny? Or the artist would like to have a fantasy concert with Jimi and Johnny making music together? Hmmmmm…..
