The 2016 Cardiff Kook Run is Superbowl Sunday in Cardiff by the Sea The 2016 3rd Annual Cardiff Kook Run will be held this coming Sunday February 7th in Cardiff by the Sea. This fun and popular 5K and 10K Cardiff Kook Run is named after the famous surfing statue, the Cardiff Kook, on the Coast Highway in Cardiff, across from the railroad crrosing (the statue is officially named the “Magic Carpet Ride” by sculptor Matthew Antichevich). The Kook has had quite the impact in the area since it was created because of the numerous and varied costumes it adorns at holidays, for special events, and just because someone decides to decorate it for one reason or another (a birthday, for example).

Cardiff by the Sea Homes for Sale Online  Cardiff by the Sea Homes for SaleCardiff by the Sea became part of the City of Encinitas in 1986. Cardiff has transformed like the rest of the area with many homes bought and remodeled and updated, some with just one wall standing for a total and complete make over. The old Vons and Value Fair are long gone but the Cardiff Village has many new shops for today's shopping experience included in Seaside Market.  True, they have a piece of beef (tri tip) that is so addicting its commonly called "Cardiff Crack".  It has gained a foothold on the internet and is being shipped all over the world.  Or grab an Acai Bowl, they are really good and perfect for a healthy breakfast. Starbucks is here, Pipes Café is a simple but good place for breakfast too.  V...
