LETTER: Encinitas, my home

My family and I moved to Encinitas in 1963. It was a sleepy little beach town with a population of 6,000. It was paradise. Gone are the days when you could go to the beach or grocery store and know everyone there. Over the years the greenhouses have disappeared and the monster mansions have taken their place. No one needs a house the size of the ones they are building. We are losing our charm and that is a real shame. I live in the community of Leucadia and I must say, we do not have any snobs here. I love my home and my neighbors who are mostly long time residents. They are all helpful and friendly. I am now 81 and have no plans for leaving. To me, Encinitas is still wonderful in spite of the changes.
