As a true San Diegan, if there’s one thing I look forward to every single year it’s Opening Day at the Del Mar Racetrack. I spend the months leading up to the races picking out the perfect dress, heels and, of course, the perfect hat. In a miraculous twist of fate, Opening Day always greets us with sunshine and warm breezes, June Gloom a forgotten relic of the past. I don my Turf Club best and head to the track, where the world seems to buzz with excitement; its a blur of color, laughter and high stakes.
Opening Day doesn’t just symbolize the beginning of the race season- it’s the iconic starting line of summer. From that day forward, the next few months are filled with fun in the sun; hiking the dry mountains, relaxing on the white sands of our beaches, or just enjoying a cocktail outside in your backyard, from sunup to sundown we’re outdoors. This is our season, San Diego—get out there and enjoy it!
As Patrick Henry once said, "It cannot be emphasized too strongly or too often that this great nation was founded, not by religionists, but by Christians; not on religions, but on the gospel of Jesus Christ. For this very reason peoples of other faiths have been afforded asylum, prosperity, and freedom of worship here."
Happy Independence Day,
