Frosty in Shelltown San Diego - My California Monday Missions Entry

ntopaz-image-0Frosty was my next door neighbor for a few weeks when I lived in Shelltown San Diego California. He woke up each evening at dusk and returned to a puddle on the ground around midnight.

As you can see, he was a big guy; towering over the roof of his one story house. It took about 30 minutes with a strong blower to get him to his full glory. The homeowners tweaked their decorations for the whole season, but Frosty in this spot was always the star of the show.

Shelltown is the poorest neighborhood in all of San Diego County, and has a bad reputation for crime and gang activity. I was in for a surprise while living there and found a peaceful place of families living in solid older homes. This home was only one of many that went all out for the Christmas season, and walking at night in December showed many nicely decorated yards.

This post is my entry for @qurator’s Monday Mission where the theme for the next weeks is Christmas. I’m also entering @socalsteemit’s Show Us Your California Contest with this nice memory of good times I had while living there.

I used a Canon ELPH160 point and shoot camera for this photo.
