Windansea mural at the airport wants to go
I want to answer to the post that delivers attention to the mural at the airport (“Windansea mural at San Diego airport could be ‘problematic’ with no protection warnings, beach front specialists say,” July 15, La Jolla Light).
We have to have to be watchful of marketing and advertising La Jolla as a area to funnel travelers without having taking into consideration the infrastructure. [Windansea] is a residential seashore. There are no genuine bathrooms or showers.
Younger small children specifically, and even confident swimmers, can be very easily knocked unconscious by the condition of the waves that lift you up and then slam you down tricky on the sand. The shore at Windansea goes up like a little hill, producing it treacherous when the wave crashes down. It is fun but can eliminate folks in minutes.
I have seen many persons hurt there since 1983. Now out of the blue there are a lot more folks, and many previous personal houses have been offered to companies as discreet holiday villas. It provides tourist pounds but will have to be imagined out more very carefully.
[On July 17], I, along with several, witnessed a younger male get slammed by a wave although enjoying in the shore surf.
He was presented chest compressions for a extensive time and they someway woke him up. The concerned bystanders ended up so grateful that the guy was alive. A significant silence descended on us as we were being reminded of how quickly daily life can be taken from us.
Permit us do more now to stay clear of tragedies. Make sure you alter the mural at the airport.

Windansea’s not by yourself with intrusive weddings
Windansea weddings that were explained in the July 15 La Jolla Mild (“Windansea weddings are popular with partners, not so a lot with some seaside-goers”) are just the suggestion of the iceberg of outsiders having in excess of our public parks compensated for with tax money of inhabitants.
The issue is even worse at Calumet Park, which is a small community “pocket park.” This park is the size of five properties and has 7 benches along the ocean and 4 benches along the avenue — not a pretty big park at all, still it is currently being taken in excess of for constant afternoon and evening weddings.

You could often get marketing written content from the La Jolla Mild.
This is just one of the parks that will allow over 50 people to show up at, which generally prevents community people these kinds of as myself from staying able to sit on a bench, as the marriage ceremony attendees generally congregate or position their merchandise on a bench. Some have quiet and enjoyable music and other people loud and blaring, which disturbs the silent time we appear to enjoy.
Since COVID commenced, far more and extra individuals come to our little park as an escape.
Most stunning is that the town of San Diego charges only $177.16 for a allow, even though Del Mar rates $1,500 and state parks $500. The metropolis is acquiring ripped off and should at the very least demand a minimum amount of $500. Why does our metropolis maintain getting rid of revenue and rising our taxes?
