I love exploring the boondocks and finding abandoned places.
Sometimes, though, one doesn’t need to go to the boondocks.
Here in San Diego, one of the most beautiful beaches, De Anza Cove, has hundreds of properties lining the beaches that have been abandoned for nine years.
I went to look at them on August 1 after I had read about them.
Here are just five of the pictures I took.
I’m still doing research on these properties. The story begins about 60 years ago and is really fascinating, especially for such prime beach properties.
They belong to the City of San Diego but have been vacant since at least 2011. Campland on the Bay was supposed to take over in January 2018, clean up the place, and make it part of Campland. Two-and-half years later, here we are with nothing done.
I will have more pictures and blog posts in the future as I discover the full story.
