mmm-yoso!!!, the food blog, is where you have landed via the interweb. Kirk is off to another Country, Ed(from Yuma) is in Yuma and Cathy is writing about beautiful San Diego County.
The Mister and I are still Staycationing in this beautiful County. The other day, we again drove West to a location we used to visit regularly, near UCSD, Torrey Pines Golf Course and the Pacific Ocean. I had been here in March after lunch with Dennis, who posted about the glider port in 2008 and canine cologne, who wrote a post on her blog about our visit here.
When you park at the far (North) end of the dirt parking lot then walk West, you'll see a narrow pathway.
Which you must not veer from.
Looking South, you can see the town of La Jolla in the distance and the small business just ahead.
Looking West, you can see paragliders preparing to take off.
Walking over to the covered patio, there is a small store selling paragliding equipment, t-shirts, mugs and also offering paragliding instruction/buddy courses. The other store serves soups, sandwiches, beverages and baked goods.
The Mister purchased a large coffee and a very fresh banana-chocolate chip muffin (total cost was <$4)
While we sat on the newly re-paved patio, on this beautiful cloud free day, we watched a paraglider preparing...
then taking off.
Later, we saw two other paragliders appearring to cross paths. It's so quiet and peaceful out here; a nice place for a mini vacation.
I hope your week is going well.
