A pocket park near the corner of Camino Del Mar and 15th Street features a series of banners that illustrate local history.
Pedestrians coming down the sidewalk have the opportunity to rest and view photos from Del Mar’s past in this quiet nook near L’Auberge Del Mar, across 15th Street from Stratford Square’s distinctive Tudor style building.
Last weekend I enjoyed a look at these fascinating historical images and descriptions, which are provided by the Del Mar Historical Society. I took photographs of the banners, moving from left to right.
Then I spotted a friendly sea lion perched on a nearby bench!
