Torrey Pines

Torrey PinesWe are back from San Diego, and, let me tell you, we went hard! We spent a whole day at the majestic San Diego Zoo (and could have happily spent even more). Saturday morning we hit the Little Italy farmer’s market, had lunch seaside in La Jolla, and went for a hike through Torrey Pines State Reserve. I just love finding gems like this one. The Torrey pine only grows in two places in the whole world, and this is one of them. The air is full of the sweet scent of the trees, and the trails wind through the cliffs down to some incredible rock formations bordering the ocean. An awesome time was had by all.

Torrey PinesThe view of La Jolla spread out below was pretty impressive too. We saw this from the back porch of the lodge. An auspicious beginning.

Torrey PinesI am so grateful to live close to the ocean. It’s a constant reminder of how small we truly are, and how much beauty this big world holds.
