Fun tile mosaic art on Encinitas sidewalk!

During my recent meandering walk in Encinitas, I noticed some super fun mosaics in the sidewalk. The circular tile and glass artwork seemed to be at intervals up and down Pacific Coast Highway. I took photos whenever I noticed one.  A few were partly covered by shadow.

When I got home and did some research on the internet, I learned these pieces were created by artist Terry Weaver, who grew up in Encinitas, and that there are 16 mosaics all told. I only recorded seven! Had I payed closer attention, I might have found many more!

    1. According to something I read, those mosaics wouldn’t exist if it weren’t for one artist taking the initiative and approaching the Encinitas City Council, who had planned to install something different in the sidewalk!
