Set In Stone

The morning tide was way too high to walk on the beach, so we headed south to the city of Solana Beach and hiked through the neighborhoods from Seaside to Fletcher Cove.

Fletcher Cove is one of the public beach access points and the city of Solana Beach has spruced it up in recent years with new landscaping and a playground for the tots. The nicest touch is the fish and wave sculptures that have been incorporated into the walkways, using beach cobblestones and seashells as part of the designs. Someone even had the great idea to use crushed seashells randomly in sections of the pavement.

It's a nice example of public art, created on a shoestring, that will stand the test of time.
