Carlsbad - CA - USA
Another medium size city (or maybe I should say little, by American standarts, since it has less then 100.000 inhabitants) on the shores of San Diego, California is Carlsbad (nothing to do with the UNESCO Carlsbad Caverns, those are in New Mexico). According to Ron, for more than two years now this region in under serious drought conditions and wildfires are threatening the city (the green hills we see on the horizon of the postcard photo are not green anymore). Thank you very much Ron for the card and your message. This postcard took 7 days to arrive!
Carlsbad is an affluent seaside resort city occupying a 7-mile (11 km) stretch of Pacific coastline in North San Diego County, California. The city is located 87 miles (140 km) south of Los Angeles and 35 miles (56 km) north of downtown San Diego. Referred to as "The Village by the Sea" by locals, Carlsbad's Mediterranean climate attracts visitors year-round to its quaint hotels and five-star luxury resorts.
