I got lots of pics yesterday during a long walk in Encinitas near the beach. I was amazed by all the different artistic banners on street lamps that line Coast Highway 101, the historic Pacific Coast Highway (often referred to as PCH).

Very awesome! Check them out!

  1. Nice artwork! I love Encinitas and the day before your first Encinitas post was thinking I need to drive up there. I like walking on the beach there and there is a great little stand with wonderful fish tacos!

      1. I can’t remember the name of the little place I like but it is across the street from the 7/11 store (I think it is that and not a circle K). It is set back but right on the main drag…just a little place.
