During the summer and fall each year the "ponies" run at Del Mar! Del Mar is only 3 miles from Cardiff via Pacific Coast Highway. The summer season begins July 16th and ends on Sept 7th. They come back and run now in the fall and have fondly called it the Bing Meet, named after the late Bing Crosby. The dates are October 29th thru November 29th. Prior to the racetrack season, the famous San Diego Fair (also in Del Mar) opens this year on June 5th and goes thru July 5th. With the cost of admission there are many day and evening free concerts to attend. The bands are listed online.
Year Purchased: 2002
About the owner: This is the section where the owner informs the traveler all about himself! I was born in Glendale, California, way back in 1947 and I'll be celebrating my 68th birthday this month. I feel very lucky to have been raised in the late 40's, 50's and 60's when life was less rushed, for lack of a better word. I was the second born, and have an older sister and a younger brother and sister. Our parents were "outdoor" people and very active into their late 80's! I was crawling in the sand at Huntington Beach, California, during my first year and have been close to the beach my entire life. One can still find me in the ocean 12 months of the year, mostly surfing on my longboard. The Sierra Nevada mountain range in the middle of California is also a place my parents took all four kids camping at an early age and I return there a number of times every year. Mammoth Mountain is my favorite place to ski. I just love that "white stuff" falling down from the sky! Another important part of my life that our parents instilled in us is a love for music. I grew up singing in a church choir, then a barber shop quartet and toward the end of my 35 years of teaching high school I sang and played guitar in a teacher rock n roll band. That was a major highlight of my music life. In addition to skiing and riding waves, my family also enjoyed tennis, basketball, volleyball and golf. Therefore, I am a weekly golfer, with competition every Wednesday morning! For daily exercise I ride a bike along the coast, enjoying the view and keeping in shape! I hope that this told you a little bit about "who I am"! Now, I hope that I get a chance to know "you" and become a great host for you and your family! Thanks for reading! Rich
Why the Owner Chose Cardiff, San Diego County, CA, USA:
This part of the "owner story" will be an easy one for me to answer! Since my family camped on the beach every summer, I just knew that somehow, somewhere, I would end up living close to the ocean. In 2002 my dream was fulfilled when I bought this home in Cardiff. Prior to making this purchase, I had lived in nearby Leucadia for 18 years, only 2 miles from Cardiff. During that time period I saw my future home as I rode along coast highway and would dream about someday owning this beautiful home. I have now lived here 13 years and still feel very lucky and fortunate to be so close to the beach!
The Unique Benefits at this House:
Breathing the clean air coming off of the ocean is a huge, health benefit. Also, watching the sun sink into the ocean on the horizon most every night and occasionally (sometimes twice a week) get a peek at a "green flash", is simply awe inspiring! Another amazing nature occurrence is once a month with a full moon, I sometimes awaken and see the full moon working its way toward the horizon. Super cool! I find myself whispering, "thank you mother nature"!
