Imperial Beach lies south of downtown San Diego, at the extreme southwest corner of the continental United States. The Imperial Beach pier is just a few miles from Mexico. This beach community is a perfect example of laid-back southern California, mostly just locals kicking back, a smattering of tourists, and a good vibe all around. The days are sunny and people are friendly.

Come stroll with me toward the pier and let’s see what’s going on!

volunteering at the museum

I have a box of old tools to go through .
GILB museum 018

 

 

I describe each item and photograph it from different angles and then hit the keyboard and enter it all in the database .

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

It’s not the most exciting kind of work to do .  Sometimes the challenge is to describe the item in accurate detail .GILB museum 011
