I’ve been wanting to paddle from Torrey Pines to La Jolla Shores for quite sometime. I tried to do it once, but the waves were too strong and we quit after being thrown in the water for about one hour.
Today I drove by Torrey Pines beach on the way to La Jolla and decided to stop by to check out the water conditions. The tide was low, there was no wind, it was warm, sunny, and the waves were not too bad…
I was excited when I was able to go past the waves, and was surprised by a ‘fever’ of stingrays that swam right under my board. I was thrilled!
My plan was to paddle a little south and then return to where I started…
Even though this trip was not planned, I was prepared for it. I knew the opportunity was going to present itself someday, and I had to take it when it did.
We will follow our Outdoors University collaborator Soraya Gonzalez Sherwin during her ninth year participating in the Susan G. Komen 3-Day. She joined this movement in 2009 because she felt a strong connection to its purpose right after she received negative breast cancer results from a needle biopsy and MRI.
“Next weekend I need to walk 17 miles on Saturday 10/14 and 13 miles on Sunday 10/15. If anybody in San Diego is interested in joining me, please message me. I will be leaving from my house on both days. Saturday, I’ll go to La Jolla Shores via Torrey Pines. On Sunday, I will go towards Cardiff via Del Mar.”
