One of the cool things about the north Leucadia corridor is the eclectic mix of housing. Here we encounter the Leucadia Creek apartments, an old motel converted to full time housing.
Blogger sez: Some potted plants and/or a fresh coat of paint would really spruce this place up.
This is the kind of spot that would benefit from a streetscape program. It was dicey walking around this with cars, trucks, buses, hoards of lycra bikers and motorcycles zooming past.
*Someone mentioned in the comments section that very few people would ever walk the entire coastal stretch of Leucadia. To that I say, well...duh.
But the Sunday morning I shot these photos (Super Bowl Sunday to be exact) I was amazed by the number of pedestrians I saw. There were plenty of people out on the coast highway. There were couples taking a lazy stroll, people walking their dogs, surfers with their boards walking to the beach access points, groups of young moms pushing strollers, people jogging, etc. It became obvious that every block of Leucadia should be safe to walk down.
