San Diego Real Estate – Commercial, Residential and Investment property in San Diego California

Majorly Awesome Monday!

The beaches are open in Del Mar again!

Good Monday morning from Del Mar California! It’s a great day and going to be a most excellent week.

I’d love to hear what’s good in your world …

One of the best things of my day, is going to be finally being allowed to go to walk on the beach. Despite the fact that we live 2 blocks from the edge of the world (and the Pacific Ocean), the powers that be (used to be?) have been keeping us from walking on the beach, swimming in the ocean and even going to to cliffs to watch sunsets. After a lot of political BS, this has been lifted and as of today, we can once again go to the beach in Del Mar.

BTW – if you are in the market for a home in Del Mar, there is a nice, new one right above the cliff (and behind where we go for sunsets) that was just relisted with Brett Combs of Compass Real Estate for a cool $15 million (it was formerly listed with Barry Estates at the same price). Here’s the link to the Zillow info for 522 Stratford Court in Del Mar.
