How ya doin? It’s Skydog’s Memorial Bench!
Installed 9-19-14 ~ Christened with coffee 9-20-14
This bench is at the top landing of Stairwell #6 in the northernmost day use/pay parking lot at Cardiff State Beach, according to the Friends of Cardiff and Carlsbad State Beaches. I have just been told that a more accurate description of the location is actually the top of the stairs at San Elijo State Park next to the showers. Either way, it’s the only dedicated bench at the top landing, on the north side looking south.
Sitting on the bench, it has a clear view to the south and all the surf breaks. Dan frequently stopped at the south Cardiff State Beach parking lot on his way home from work. It can be tricky to find the entrance to this parking lot, but once you do, it will be easy to find on your next visit. I have 20-year naming rights, so you have plenty of time to find it and sit for a bit. Check out the slide show below.
