No idea. But curious to find out.

Oh how gorgeous.  St. Augustine??  Did you post this to Name that Photo?

No idea either, good guess with St Augustine though.  I'll be interested to find out.....

My colleague loves seahorses.  I am going to have to make sure she see these pictures.  Incredible. You will have to let us know where they are!

Hi John~ Well those seahorse lights are very unique and interesting.  I have no idea where they are located though.  I bet you will share it with us eventually....

Posted by Vickie McCartney, Broker, Real Estate Agent Owensboro KY (Maverick Realty) over 9 years ago

Not a clue but the lights are very cool.  Would it be a safe bet to guess somewhere near an ocean? 

Posted by Brian Brumpton, Boise Idaho Real Estate (Keller Williams Boise) over 9 years ago

Really cool lights.  I'll be glad to find out where they are.

John: I don't know but you've got the #1 spot on Google for seahorse street lights!

Wow...Neat street lights.

Cheers, thanks for sharing :O))

John, no idea where but they are fun!

Posted by Tony & Darcy Cannon, The C Team (Aubrey and Associates Realty) over 9 years ago

Hi John - I can only guess they must be some seaside community.  Makes me melancholy for when I was a kid in Los Angeles, when all the street lights were works of art.  Somewhere along the way, they all became generic and plain - saving money I guess, but the street lights used to give a community a distincitve personality.

Thank you all for commenting. It's location is not St. Augustine but it is by the ocean in Brevard County, Florida. The lights seem to have a European old world flare and I agree with Susan that everything is so generic these days. I'll tell you where they are on Sunday around noon. Another hint - They are on the deck of a well known watering hole. Keep guessing.

Oh heck.  Now I have to look up Brevard County.  Is that where you are in Cocoa Beach?  I don't think I saw them on the pier at the greasy spoon we ate at lol.  Think I would have noticed them.

Posted by Jenny Kotulak, Broker - Oakville Ontario Real Estate (RE/MAX Real Estate Centre Inc., Brokerage) over 9 years ago

Jenny - It's not the Pier. BTW, I haven't ordered any food there in years. They charge too much for so-so food.

Posted by John Mayer, Your Beach Area Expert (Oikos Realty, Cape Canaveral, Cocoa Beach Florida) over 9 years ago

John, is it Seahorse Key?  Or how about the Cheyenne Saloon in Orlando?  Have a great day.

Posted by Kevin Cavanaugh, Lic. Associate Broker, ABR, GREEN (Keller Williams Hudson Valley Realty) over 9 years ago

Kevin - I got you this time. No Corona at Coconuts for you today.

The answer: Coconuts in Cocoa Beach is exactly where I found these unique lamp posts. They must have just been added because this is the first time I've seen them. Apparently, someone named Vince Vallone installed the lights but I have had no luck Googling him. I'll go by Coconuts to pick up his brochure and let you all know. Here is Coconuts website: http://coconutsonthebeach.com

Those are interesting and clever -- not likely to find them duplicated other places.

Posted by Bob & Carolin Benjamin, East Phoenix Arizona Homes (Benjamin Realty LLC) over 9 years ago

Outside of King Neptune's palace?  Looks like they would fit.

 

Whoops!  I see you've given the answer already.  Now my serious response will be to no avail.

Posted by Jim Hale, Eugene Oregon's Best Home Search Website (ACTIONAGENTS.NET) over 9 years ago

Fantastic light poles! It would be awesome if there were such variety everywhere, instead of the plain ole generic ones we see everywhere....

Bob and Carolin - They are unique aren't they?

Jim - Sorry i ruined your serious answer. Maybe next time.

Debi - Alas, it will never happen - it's not cost effective.

Posted by John Mayer, Your Beach Area Expert (Oikos Realty, Cape Canaveral, Cocoa Beach Florida) over 9 years ago

Hey, John. You have to love the all skill and all the time that went into them. Thanks, Jim

I love seahorses and I would love to have those for my backyard!!


Posted by Debbie Walsh, Hudson Valley NY Real Estate 845.283-3036 (Shahar Management) over 9 years ago

Those are really pretty street lights!  It's nice to see a community that cares.

While looking for seahorse lighting I found this post. Gorgeous! I also did a quick search for Vincent Vallone artist, and found him - he's on Pinterest. I know this is 2018 but I plan on asking him if he is still making these!! :)
