Local Spotlight: The Coronado Sandman (Alberto Avila)

We have been meaning to do this post for a while regarding one of our favorite locals, the Coronado Sandman. The kids go nuts every time we spot his ‘sand art’ around Coronado. So, here are a few of his masterpieces and some additional details about the Sandman:

Real Name: Alberto Avila
Residence: Coronado (of course!)
Office: Coronado and Mission Beach Streets
Inspiration: Angel from above
Turn-ons: Painting with sand and spreading joy to those that appreciate his gift
Turn-offs: Getting citations from local police and grumpy complainers (booooo!)
