Snowman Sandy’s Story
Not too long ago, but far far away, a frosty little snowman went out to play.
“Brrr,” he said, “It’s cold as ice. I want to go somewhere nice.” So he did a little research, looked near and far, and decided on a sunny spot they call Del Mar. Just how he got there no one knows, but he was SO happy with the place that he chose. A beautiful village down by the sea, with friendly folks that suited him to a T! He loved the beaches and the bluffs that surrounded, him but set his sights on living downtown. So many shops and so many nice faces, he couldn’t decide among all of the places! “I know what I’ll do,” he said to himself, “I’ll spend time on everyone’s shelf.” So when you visit the village of Del Mar by the sea, check out the shops and look for Sandy!
