With all the recent drama at Del Mar Avenue, I decided to take a tour in search of other viewing benches in the area. Working from North to South our tour begins at the dead end alley known as Cape May Place. This lone bench is in the style of memorial benches, but bears no plaque. The view here is spoiled by a trash can and the exposed rip rap at the Northern edge of Saratoga Park. Sadly the bench also suffers from that most ineffective mating ritual known as graffiti. I think the bench should be relocated out to the far corner of Saratoga Park. At the very least it should be angled more toward North Ocean Beach. I would also screen the back of the bench from public view with a single dome-shaped lemonade-berry plant.
