Property Videos from North San Diego

Each week, I take my handy video camera with me while previewing properties in North San Diego County.  This week I’m posting 2 properties that I previewed.  These are not my listings and I have no knowledge of the condition of these homes, but will add my comments as I look around.  If you are interested in seeing either of these properties or any others listed in North San Diego, please let me know.

Lighted Star above Lake San Marcos

by Jacque on December 20, 2009

The Lighted Cross above Lake San Marcos

The Lighted Cross on the Hill above Lake San Marcos turns into a “star” in December.  The two crossbars are rotated to show a smaller cross behind the larger one thus becoming a “star”.  The Lake San Marcos Cross began as a Cable and Communications tower in 1963 for the growing community below it.  Christmas lights were strung at Christmas time and were so well received that it soon became a tradition and eventually lights stayed lit all year.  The tower has changed hands several times and in 2006 was transferred to the Lake San Marcos Community Association to manage.  John Steever, a local contractor, has volunteered to maintain the cross, replacing wiring and light bulbs as they need it.
