Torrey Pines State Park

Hi Girlies! Today, my DH & I went hiking at Torrey Pines State Park, CA & I would like to share some photos with you of this gorgeous place! :)
This is a Southern Coastal view.
This is a Northern Coastal view.
Here I am with my DH! :)
These are some of the beautiful etched cliffs.You can hike a trail that takes you down to the beach. This view is looking up at the cliffs from the beach.
While we were hiking out of the park, we saw this SD Fire & Rescue helicopter hovering in the direction we were headed! We were not sure what the heck was going on. We were thinking the worse, maybe a Mountain Lion attack!

You can imagine our surprise when we saw all these trucks in the parking lot next to my car! There was a brush fire just over the other side of the ridge! Thank goodness the wind was blowing away from this parking lot!!!!

This is our favorite candy store in Old Town San Diego. They make fresh Salt Water Taffy daily which satisfies my DH's sweet tooth! :)
Thanks for sharing my day's adventure with me! I hope you enjoyed the photos :)
