Let's Tour North Leucadia (part 7)
Next to the new Mobile station are the Sea Bluff condos, our only coastal gated community.
I must admit, I don't like gated communities. I think they scream "I'm a paranoid freak who is terrified of the world" or "I'm doing creepy things behind these gates."
Sea Bluff has their own beach access stairs. I used them quite often in the 80's before the Grandview stairs were rebuilt because I had a few friends living there. At the time most of the owners of Sea Bluff were the local shady small time drug dealers. I hope it's not that way anymore.
Sea Bluff was the epicenter of the short term rental drama. Tempers are still pretty hot about that. See Leucadia!: Limitation, not ban, urged for Encinitas. Mayor Guerin's blood boils
Factoid-Before Sea Bluff was built the bluff was covered with tomato plants and the surf spot out front was called Tomato Patch.
Status: Funky despite their best efforts.
Now we are really cruising down the sidewalk as the highway swooshes by us.
As we leave the Sea Bluff condos we approach the Pacifica Apartment/Condos and encounter more activity. Here on our coastal walk we see more pedestrians, joggers, surfers, moms with strollers and dog walkers.
The Pacifica Apartment/Condos are basic pop-out style architecture.
Pacifica provides a lot of housing and the residents here seem to enjoy the neighborhood. Everyone I passed was friendly. Most of the cars parked along the sidewalk had Leucadia pride stickers on them.

Blogger sez: All this place needs is an updated paint job. Paint over that sickly pink with some cool earth tones.
