Y’know how you can drive by something time after and time and never really see it? That happened to me with this abandoned house. I was driving near Torrey Pines Beach and had to do a U-turn when I noticed the place. It’s next to a car repair shop in a very expensive neighborhood of Del Mar.
See the strip of blue in the background? That’s the Pacific Ocean. The North Torrey Pines Bridge, built in 1933, is on the left. Torrey Pines Beach is a great spot to hang out and watch sunsets. The tall tree that looks like it’s wearing a ratty fur coat? A palm whose fronds haven’t been cut in years.
You can see part of Torrey Pines State Reserve in the background. One of my favorite places to hike, and a fantastic place to take photos. I’ll wait until the weather cools down for that.
I do like the blue shutters and agave. Peeling paint is a favorite subject, as you may know.
Whoever lived here likes stuffed animals. See Garfield?
And the goose?
I don’t know the status on this property, but this sign looks really, really old.
Thanks again for your patience while I experiment with templates. I like that my photos are full-screen, but not completely sold on the layout. The photos seem a bit crowded, even though I’ve spaced them the usual way. And yikes, could the name of the blog be any smaller? Can’t change that at this time.
Feel free to give me input–I won’t be offended, I promise.
