Inhaltsangabe: CORONADO, CALIFORNIA: HOMETOWN, HOMEPORT, HOME AWAY FROM HOME pays tribute to the island's unique assets - including its historic neighborhoods, Navy heritage, world-class vacation amenities and wonderful weather. The 105-page volume is filled with more than 200 photographs, and its 11 chapters exlore the home theme of Coronado, including the city's neighborhoods (Hometown), the Coronado Bridge (Home Stretch), the community's gardens (Home Grown), the United States Navy (Homeport) and even Coronado's off-leash dog beach (Home Free). According to author, Christine Donovan, a 35-year resident of the peninsula and a local historian, Coronado packs a lot of variety into its small island area: Coronado is inherently interesting, both by nature and design. Donovan points to the community's varied coastline as part of its natural endowment, with more than 8 miles of Pacific beachfront, along with bay views that include everything from the expansive San Diego skyline to the intimacy of Glorietta Bay. Well-chosen quotations give the book universal appeal - for instance, when a photograph of a well-kept Cape Cod is combined with this thought by Winston Churchill: We shape our dwellings, and afterward, our dwellings shape us. Or, when Lao-tzu's sentiment: A good traveler has no fixed plans and is not intent on arriving, accompanies a photograph of the San Diego ferry docking in Coronado at dusk.
Über den Autor: Christine Donovan is a 35-year resident of Coronado and a local historian who has also authored a number of history books for the Hotel del Coronado.
