The most beautiful fire station ever!

Out & About

When I was in Rancho Santa Fe last week (and I’ll be going again on Thursday), I took a self-guided tour of downtown.

There really isn’t much there except for ten banks, ten wealth management companies, ten real estate companies, ten escrow companies, and one fantastic restaurant which is way out of my price range.

I did find the most beautiful fire station I have ever seen. Looks like this:

At first I thought it was just another Rancho Santa Fe mansion, but why would someone build a mansion in Rancho Santa Fe that was just feet from a major roadway and not behind a high privacy wall protecting the compound?

    RSF is best enjoyed by either horseback riding or cycling, I’m afraid (on bike, if you stay to the east of the Village it’s not so hilly or trafficky, and there’re San Dieguito Reservoir – best viewed from Lago Lindo – and the beautiful Stud Loop (El Vuelo – Las Colinas) that’s really best done east to west). 🙂 There are some really beautiful roads out there with amazing mansions and gardens/orchards… tho the place is consuming way too much water to keep it that way.

      Actually, they pay a lower rate for their water than I do. It’s because of the weird way the water districts calculate water usage. The more water you use, the less the per gallon rate is. Both the Union-Tribune (back when it was an actual newspaper) and the Reader have done stories on that in the past. The rich need their playgrounds to look beautiful………

          We live in a desert! A desert that often is in a drought, like right now for example. Having people pay a lower rate per gallon if they use more water just makes no sense whatsoever……….
