40th Tour: Pacific Beach

By Crystal Islas, Buffalo Exchange Pacific Beach

Dear Buffalo Friends,

Greetings from the most tubular city of all time: San Diego, CA. Pacific Beach is a unique community in one of America’s finest cities. It’s just like the movies with palm trees, bodacious babes, beach bums, groovy vibes, and killer beautiful waves.

On this day, we had 94 degree weather and clear skies. The crew from Jarritos handed out ice cold drinks to our visitors, and sno-cones were also enjoyed (my favorite flavor was guava!) as folks swayed to the records that were spinning.

Enthusiastic employees filled me up with rad goods for my new friends to see! Authentic ethnic embroidered blouses, hand tooled bags and belts, primo vintage dresses, and bohemian skirts crowded my refurbished insides. Oh, and the fringe—all the fringe! My favorite item was a pair of leather fringed chaps with embossed roses—I could hardly contain myself. (It’s sad, because I’m an aluminum trailer and I can’t wear clothes.)

What an eclectic crowd this small beach town has! Kelly, with electric red hair and a spirit to match, visited me five times on the tour! Locals and regulars shopped eagerly and found gems. One of my new friends walked away with an out of this world vest to take to Joshua Tree! Another young friend skated away on outrageously cool roller skates. Later in the day, Will, broke a boot shaped piñata and buffalo goodies poured down from it!

I love meeting new people wherever I go, but I especially love meeting four-legged friends! Maya, the fluffy white pup, loved helping her mom shop! Sebastian, the two-toned eyed rescue from Costa Rica, really stole our hearts!

Friends, in case you can’t tell, I loved Pacific Beach. Neighboring businesses and locals provide such great support. They were excited to spread the word about my coming to town and really made me feel at home. The day was filled with priceless treasures, a great staff, super radical customers, and unbelievable memories.

Can you believe it? The end of the tour is near. Cheers to endless summers and cheers to endless roaming.

Sincerely me,

Airstream Land Yacht
