Passion for San Pedro.com came about from just that... my passion for my wonderful childhood home. My name is Linda Dixon and I was raised on the Peninsula, the first eight years here in San Pedro and the remaining ten in Palos Verdes, on the north side of the hill.
As soon as I was licensed to drive, my friends and I would frequently come here, usually hanging out at Ports O' Call Village or Point Fermin. There was always something to do and it always had that wonderful familiar feeling.
My dad recently described San Pedro "as a city that has never really outgrown itself." I thought that was a very profound way of putting it and hadn't thought of it quite that way. Many places change so much as the population grows that it's often hard to recognize a place that was once so familiar.
On this journey through San Pedro, I will not only be showing you the wonderful sites of the city, I will be acquainting you with the commerce that keeps it alive.
Over the last 34 years I have raised five kids and have three adorable grandsons and two beautiful granddaughters. Each one of my kids has their own memory of this town, having been here with me many times over the years. Now I am creating memories of this area for my grandchildren to enjoy for years to come!!
My hope is that you too will be inspired to visit San Pedro and the Peninsula to create memories of your own.
As an artist, I
have recorded many of my memories on canvas, and one of my pages is
dedicated to that part of my life, and how San Pedro played a role in
it. The photos you will see are a conglomerate of pictures taken by myself, my brother Jeff, sister Kathy, and my daughter Chelsea. There will sure be more to follow.
For more on these wonderful sites, please visit ThePedroStore.com an online based retail site with products that feature famous icons in and around the San Pedro area such as the Port of Los Angeles Cranes, the Vincent Thomas Bridge and the Korean Bell.
