Olivenhain Colony

Although I have driven down Rancho Sante Fe Road many times, I only recently went far enough east to discover the Meeting Hall, Shanty and…

…boarded-up Hotel.

It was quite a surprise to see these old buildings in San Diego, just a few miles from the ocean and situated in a neighborhood of upscale family homes.


But so out-of-place.

As if they were transplanted from the East Coast.

I walked inside the Meeting Hall on Saturday to check out their Craft Fair.

Sample homemade dill pickles.

And best of all, check out the interior.

What a treat.

And I am not just referring to the beautiful knitted finger gloves and matching hats on display and the boxes of homemade toffee.
