San Diego County Fair

Picture of the Moment

I left at 5:00 this morning to go up north (defined as anything north of Interstate 8) and meet with the Pacific Photographic Society to take a 2-hour tour of the Encina Wastewater Treatment Facility.


The art of treating poop has certainly come a long way since I first toured such a facility in Kingsville, Texas, in 1967 when I was 12 years old.

Whenever I have to go north, I try to make good use of my time and the car (i.e., gasoline!) and visit other things on the way to and from.

And that I did!

It was a cloudy, gray, overcast morning, but that didn’t prevent me from train watching. San Diego County is one of the best places in the world to watch trains because we have a great selection of commuter trains: San Diego Trolley, Amtrak, Coaster, Sprinter, and Metrolink.

I stopped at the tracks going over the San Dieguito River and past the Del Mar Thoroughbred Racetrack where the San Diego County Fair currently is in full swing. Ranked by attendance, the San Diego County Fair is the sixth largest in the United States, and I have been to four of the top six.

The Fair ends on Sunday, July 5, so there’s plenty of time to get out there, spend the day, and have some fun.
