We spend our mornings researching and deciding where we will hike that day. It is a delightful time to figure out of daily adventures. We are adding up significant, for us, amounts of steps and great exercise. The Scripps Oceanic Institute down near San Diego is a world famous educational hub of folks who study all aspects of the ocean. It is close so we headed there for a fantastic hike.
We walked through the campus of one of the Scripps main schools to get down to the beach. The gardens were full of fascinating plants and ‘tons’ of hummingbirds.
Since our arrival we make it a ‘policy’ to be on the beach for the sunset. It is only a few steps from our front door, and can you have too many sunset photos?
I used to frequent that one coffee place that is on every corner. I found that even with the ‘fu-fu’ drinks they were bitter from an over roasted bean. One day I thought, ‘what the heck, I wonder if that local roaster does a better job?’ We wondered into Clyde’s Coffee in South Tahoe California and started talking with the owner. He even took me into the back and showed me. His fancy new roaster. Since that time we have made it a ‘policy’ to ‘Drink Local Coffee’. It doesn’t take much effort to find a small, independent roaster who is serving a mighty fine cuppa joe.
In the late afternoon we continually are checking the time so we don’t miss our sunset beach walk. Each one is unique and you need to hang around for the credits because there is always an extra scene snuck in.
