From Surf Dogs Surf A Thon event at Del Mar dog beach, we stopped at Anderson Canyon just north of Torrey Pines State Beach, San Diego. Recently, an award-winning woodworking artist Tim Richards transformed a red Torrey Pine into a piece of art.
Torrey Pine is the rarest pine in the United States . Torrey Pines are native to coastal hills and bluffs in the Del Mar area of southern California and to Santa Rosa Island.
Definitely a unique way to transform a dead Torrey Pine.
The dead Torrey Pine stump is now called Sunset Seat. A stump where people can sit, look and enjoy the scenic ocean view. A carved red-tailed hawk, official bird of Torrey Pines Reserve, is attached to the stump.
Many locals and tourists are admiring Tim Richards art piece. We were informed that another beetle-damaged Torrey Pine on Coastal Rail Trail (City of Solana Beach) is Tim Richards next woodcarving art project.
What do you think of Tim Richard’s Sunset Seat?
