City of Aliso Viejo, I owe you an apology. I recently had a conversation with a friend in which we both agreed that there was nothing good in Aliso Viejo, that it’s not near anything, and that nobody has ever gone there unless they absolutely had to. For what I said, I am truly sorry. As it turns out, I hadn’t really spent much time in Aliso Viejo and after hiking and geocaching there this weekend and watching some model plane flying and listening to the boys explore and seeing the sunset over the valley and actually experiencing you for myself, I have changed my mind. Any city which has such a beautiful nature preserve for hiking and biking does not deserve to be insulted over coffee by ordinary citizens like my friend and me. I hope you will forgive me and invite me back soon.
