Traversing the coast, without responsibility
Jen and I took a quick trip to Torrey Pines on Monday. She suggested we spend my last Christmas vacation day off together, and plan a mini-adventure. Apparently those spontaneous days spent traversing the coast, without responsibility, are few in number once the baby arrives!
We hiked the gentle and relatively short Beach Trail, passing the wind-swept pines and sandstone outcroppings. The deep blue sea and pristine beach below provided a scenic backdrop.
After a nice, quiet rest on a bench overlooking the endless waves approaching the shoreline, we walked back to the visitor's center, and then took off up Highway 101, sun roof open, 80s songs blaring. Lunch was at Moonlight Beach in Encinitas, one of our favorite escapes.
I'll let the photos do the rest of the talking:
