San Diego Pacific Isle

This pond was a great surprise to me,
 as it's only a few miles from my home as the seagull flies.
Normally I wouldn't focus on a pond like this,

but it was so intriguing when seen from the map view,
I just had to go take a look in person

 Contained entirely within the confines of a circular 
condominium building, Pacific Isle Pond is man-made
but seems very natural in its foliage and layout.
Perhaps the fact that it's been there for decades
is the real answer to the question, "Why?"

Three stories high; 120 units; built in 1969.
Hmmm, that's over 50 years ago!
Just across the road is Ocean Beach ...
Drugs might have been a factor.

Nice place, for sure.
