I teach chess on weekdays at elementary school after-school enrichment programs, which means my afternoons are taken. Mornings, then, are reserved for home inspections or getting out and about to enjoy all that is San Diego.
Home inspections during rain, or even the threat of rain, are rare, so these past few mornings I have been out searching for San Diego Historical Landmarks. Sometimes when the landmark is no longer there, probably having been destroyed in the name of progress, I will drive the neighborhood looking for good photography subjects.
Always amazed, I am, at some of the things I find, such as this rooftop horse:
I found a large mural of a woman with spider webs on her forehead and surrounded by roses. Perhaps this is Spider Woman:
The historical landmark I was searching for still existed but was being renovated, so the pictures aren’t real good with scaffolding and such surrounding the house. However, the rooftop adornments were quite interesting:
I also found the Monkey Paw Brewing Company.
Sadly, the Monkey Paw Brewing Company was not open at 7:00 a.m. Surely it was 5:00 somewhere in the world, right?
