Skeletons on the Roof

A lot has been added to the yard and house since this was originally posted. The directions are perfect without having an actual address listed. The owner was outside and said hi.

House with Skeletons on the Roof

A house a few blocks northeast of Balboa Park has a bunch of skeletons on the roof and on the side of the house. It is probably a homage to the Mexican Day of the Dead every November 1 and 2. Since it was January when I found this place, the skeletons must be year-round decorations.
