While waiting for sunset and the fireworks show at the Stockton Waterfront I took a short walk as the sun was getting low on the horizon. The marina was full of boaters waiting for the fireworks to be shot from Banner Island Ballpark after the Stockton Ports’ game.
Stockton is a beautiful city, but the beauty of this inland port city is often missed. The waterfront area is a centerpiece of Stockton’s beauty, and though many Stocktonians question the amount of money spent to revitalize the waterfront, no one can argue that it reveals a side of Stockton that residents are very proud of. Unfortunately, what we Americans seem to thrive on is negativity. The ugliness, which no one can deny exists, is the only story we seem to want to hear. The good rarely makes news, but there is a lot of good, a lot of beauty in Stockton. Here is just a bit, and I hope to bring you more.
