San Diego has a 59-mile Scenic Drive that, at 60 miles per hour, would take you 59 minutes to do.
After accounting for city street speeds and all of the stopping at vista points, it probably will take you at least a day, possible two.
Part of the drive takes you through La Jolla, California, home of the rich and famous, the 1%, the people who simply don’t live like the rest of us.
The drive will take you through the residential neighborhoods where you can view some of the magnificent homes. Here’s one of my favorites:
The many outdoor decks, the rooftop deck, and the large windows on that home tells those in the know (like me!) that this house has a panoramic view of the Pacific Ocean.
I also got excited about this home because the whole first floor exterior is stone. Most houses around here are stucco. And those that are not stucco, are stucco. If you visit a lot of neighborhoods, you might also find some homes with stucco.
Stone probably is the second most common exterior, although it is expensive, which is why you only find it in rich neighborhoods.
Brick and wood exteriors here are about as rare as a good hair day for Donald Trump….
