During our San Diego visit, which I mentioned yesterday, we also took a walk up some cliffs and along the beach in Torrey Pines. The following day, we headed out to Coronado and spent the day on the beach. The light hike up the cliffs led us to the beautiful views below. I threw on some yoga pants and a workout tank for the dusty hike but I wore the sweater and pants above to dinner after our hike. I thrifted the sweater from Savers, always an exciting score, and have lots of ideas to wear it going forward which I will be sure to share. You have seen these jeans on several occasions (very casual walks and days home with The Little Guy), though I rolled them up for dinner because I did not love the full pant with sandals. I hadn’t tried this look before and loved how it turned out. I always get excited about a new take on something old, especially such a staple!
At the beach in Coronado, we built sand castles and The Man tried to bury The Little Guy in the sand. He did not entirely mind, though we cleaned sand from his ears for a couple of days after our time at the beach. I do not swim much and, not having spent much time near oceans, do not particularly love them (yes, by that, I mean they intimidate me). So I don’t typically swim in them. I also have a giant fear of jelly fish, and lucky for us, a large batch of the reddish purple jellies below had swept up on shore in recent days during our trip. Finding these bad boys on the beach confirmed that I would be staying dry for the remainder of the trip (call me a baby, I’ll take it).
Despite the jelly fish visits, we did not run into any issues with them. We did, however, have our Coronado beach trip cut short when a sting ray decided to go after The Man and left him with a pretty nice sting ray gash on his foot. Apparently, those stings are pretty painful. He ultimately was just fine, despite the pain for a couple of hours after the sting, but he did get taken to the life guard station in a lifeguard vehicle (which we all, The Man included, found fairly entertaining and embarrassing). In truth though, he could barely walk so he certainly needed the ride. I didn’t know until this past week sting ray encounters are all in a regular day’s work for a lifeguard, but add it to the list of reasons I will not be taking a swim in the ocean anytime soon. You can find me lying on a towel in the sand soaking up some rays!
