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…
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.
