A Walk Around Buena Vista Lagoon

Buena Vista Lagoon

 On the morning of March 9, 2018, my mother-in-law and I decided to take a trip to the Buena Vista Lagoon in Oceanside, California.

I had been here once before but never took the quarter-mile hike just outside of the Buena Vista Lagoon Audubon’s Nature Center.

I have been intrigued ever since, so we are back!

Come and join me for a tour!

Exploring North Pacific Beach

One day I decided to head down to the coast to do some more research on my website. So,  I had my itinerary all ready, with over 12 beaches to go check out, starting with North Pacific Beach.

I was fortunate that it was such a lovely day. It was so warm that I didn’t even need a jacket.  Where else can you experience mid 70’s in the winter but Southern California!

 My “Beaches of San Diego County” was a big help. Here, I  have linked all the addresses of each beach to Google Maps.

Torrey Pines State Beach

Torrey Pines State Beach Panoramic Bluffs

Torrey Pines State Beach is located right between La Jolla to the south and Del Mar to the north.  I have been visiting this beach for over 30 years and never tire of the sights.

While living in San Diego, this was our number one beach to come and visit.

I discovered Torrey Pines State Beach when I was working as a Fisheries Technician. This beach is a prime spot for surf fishing. I can not think of a better place to have to work on!

I love it here so much!
