SUPPORT THIS INDEPENDENT JOURNALISM
The article you’re about to read is from our reporters doing their important work — investigating, researching, and writing their stories. We want to provide informative and inspirational stories that connect you to the people, issues and opportunities within our community. Journalism requires lots of resources. Today, our business model has been interrupted by the pandemic; the vast majority of our advertisers’ businesses have been impacted. That’s why the DP Times is now turning to you for financial support. Learn more about our new Insider’s program here. Thank you.
Regretfully, Christopher Wright’s article, in which he heralds the Land of Enchantment as his destination on his retirement from the Dana Point Library, fails to identify the “certain town off the beaten path” to which he is headed. My wife and I met at the University of New Mexico in the early 1950s and traveled the far corners of the delightful State on week-ends and college vacations. We continued as frequent visitors to New Mexico during the half century since we took up residence in Laguna Niguel, now Dana Point, after six years in the Marine Corps.
Were it not for the South Coast being the most ideal place to live in our estimation, based on having seen a good part of the world, we would certainly understand that Wright could be lured to some specially enchanting place in New Mexico.
