The Netherlands. The three-masted topsail schooner ‘Oosterschelde’ is the last remaining representative of the large fleet of schooners that sailed under the Dutch flag at the beginning of the 20th century. As the largest restored Dutch sailing ship the ‘Oosterschelde’ is a monument for Dutch shipbuilding and maritime navigation under sail. https://www.oosterschelde.nl/ship/?lang=en

Here are some photos of today’s tall ships with his ‘real’ camera:

Paddling from Torrey Pines to La Jolla Shores | Soraya Gonzalez Sherwin


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…

A lonely pelican in the vast ocean…

Considering the possibility of paddling all the way to La Jolla since the water was so calm…

Taking a few minutes to admire the beauty of Torrey Pines Reserve from the ocean for the first time…
This fishing boat kept me going. I knew if something went wrong, somebody will notice.

Scripps Pier. A familiar place.

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.
