BWD 1978

Thursday, March 11, 2010
While visiting a park (ahown above) along the Pacific Ocean in La Jolla, California, I happened to look down and there, in the concrete right next to where I had parked, was this inscription carved 30+ years ago.
Now 1978 is the year my family started Bird Watcher's Digest in our living room, and we had a surprising amount of support from the birding community right from the start, but I'm not sure we were impressive enough to inspire someone to carve our initials in the wet cement of a California coastal town (which by the way, is pronounced La Hoy-ya—not La Jah-la—I discovered).

Pretty funny what you end up seeing when you take the time to look around.

Wow, this would have been an epiphany for me too. I've certainly heard of "LaHoya" California, and i've read about "LaJolla", but I never realized these were the same places!
