We have not (yet) washed into the Pacific Ocean

Feb 08, 2024,20:47 PM

During a brief break in the storms, I took the cover off the Lotus (as the garage is more than full) to see if it had melted down like the wicked witch in the Wizard of Oz. It had not. However, all the dust in the cover was washed through the fabric and left on the car. No problem, it's just dust. The car was pretty dry inside, and started right up, so I decided to take it for a drive.

I'm wearing the Credor Spring Drive this morning, and decided to head toward the ocean to see what's happening there.

It's about 50 degrees F, with 15-25 mph winds gusting off the ocean. I have the top up, but no heater on -- notice the colors of the water?

Despite the chill breeze, women are out in their running gear.

while the few men I see shuffling along, getting their steps in, are as bundled up as I am.

This house covers 1/3 of a block, complete with RV, boat, flagpole and view of the Pacific.

Their view is waves pounding while hoping the cliffs won't slid off into the water.

I headed NE towards home.

Waiting for the next rain.

Ditto! Once in 1970 I went down and resolved to walk along the shore to the point

I didn’t count on how long and how rough the walk was, and how quickly the tide would rise. I was about to the cemetery when I realized in desperation I would have to get up or get smashed. There were a few “escape” ropes hanging down the cliffs so I grab...  

HaHa! We need to connect over a few beers on this! My friends and I did this trek so many times we could have been tour guides. I think we went a tad further.... almost to the

Navy's "Dolphin Tanks" which is very close to the point. This area is a mostly unknown gem of San Diego for anyone who has the desire to tackle the challenges. ;-)
