Bird Rock & A Bird on a Tree

My co-worker and I were craving some good coffee so we took a short drive over to Bird Rock Coffee Roasters.  It's named after a neighborhood in La Jolla where they first established a coffee shop.

I was totally digging these pins on his cap.

It wasn't quite as busy at this time of the day.  Considering it was way past the morning rush.

The Slayer 3 Group Expresso Machine.  These are considered to be the Ferrari of expresso machines. 

After work I went for a short walk near the beach.  I soon discovered that they had taken out the power for the traffic signals and turn the intersection into a 3 way stop.

Like this jogger, I was playing frogger trying to avoid being hit.

San Diego Gas and Electric doing electrical work.  After a brief chat, I was told that they will be working through the night.  I asked if I could take a photo of them working.

I walked up and saw these three cones playing hide and seek with the dozer

Ten year old me wanted to sit and play with the controls.

I went up to find Sunset Seat.  A chair carved from the a Torrey Pine that was once infested with the bark beetles.  Instead of completely removing it, a resident worked with a wood carver to preserve it. You can learn more about in this Del Mar Times article.

As the title of this post suggests that is the bird on a tree.  A hawk to be exact, carved along with the bench.

I decided to spend a moment at the seat and gaze at the sliver of sun cutting through the clouds.  Then I spotted these pelicans flying in formation.

You can also see this cliff side mansion overlooking the ocean.  According to Zillow, it's currently estimated at $21million.

I end the day with this stop sign covering for the traffic lights.
