'Englishing' at Mission Beach, CA
One of the great things about working at a school in San Diego is that we can have excursions that take us close to the ocean. One of the places that apparently doesn't get used much on Friday afternoon is the south end of Mission Beach close to the 'canal.' It was an ideal location for our end-of-session activity.
The weather was perfect for a fall day in San Diego, breezy with whitecaps and frothy waves on the Pacific and sun everywhere. There's a grassy area with grills for barbecuing, so we were able to prepare s'mores, hotdogs, and other food. Though the coals never got quite hot enough, Luciano and Victor patiently waited two hours for their three-inch steaks to reach a medium-cooked color. By that time, everyone else had eaten, but the two guys said that the meat was delicious, seasoned by their huge appetites.
