(I am writing this blog on September 24th to share with you upon my return home today, September 25th. )
Sometimes it is the simple things in life that are most precious; for instance, composing this blog while sitting on the beach nibbling on a granola bar and sipping cool water. Ahh… warm sand between my toes, cool ocean water, the smell of salt water in the air, plenty of birds to talk to, and even an occasional dolphin ( if those darn dolphins would have stayed surfaced a little longer I would have had some great pics to share). There is no stress here, just happy beach goers simply laughing and living.
At this very moment, I am feeling happy, comfortable, peaceful, relaxed, blessed, appreciative, and most of all- thankful. And as I sit here on the beach, I find myself not wanting to leave, just staying in this peaceful environment for eternity. Ahh, but this little piece of sany heaven is meant to be shared. So, with this said, I will share with you what I have experienced today-
Welcome to Torrey Pines beach:
I have NEVER seen a kelp bulb (or Bull Kelp) this large in my entire life!! It is monsterous! Just look at the patch of dried kelp off to the right.
If you go towards the cliff, you will come upon La Jolla. If you go back the other way some distance, you will find yourself at the infamous Blacks Beach (nudist beach). I stayed right in the middle ;-)
I wasn't the only one playing in the water!
So there you have it; a simple day at the beach which I will cherish forever! Though, I will admit that it was difficult to leave ;-)
