This post is dedicated to my guide to Torrey Pines, TPGoddess (which, of course, stands for Torrey Pines Goddess).
I’m not going to bother with captions. All of the photos were taken by me at the Torrey Pines State Natural Preserve during the short hike I took with TPG on the Guy Fleming Trail. I wish I could have gone back again to hike some of the other trails during our trip, but they’ll have to wait until our next visit. It’s a gorgeous area and I can see why TPG loves it so.
Torrey Pines is one of those places I wish I could explore over and over again on a daily basis. I can’t imagine ever getting tired of going there as I think the changes over the seasons and over time must be fascinating…
… and beautiful.
And here she is, the Torrey Pines Goddess herself:
I hope to get to Part 2 soon. I have some lovely close-ups of some of the flowers and there was a little lizard that posed for me. However, it’s growing season here in the Bogs and I’m busy with gardening along with the usual care of my home and family.
On top of that I’ve been working on my website (which I’ll unveil soon but someone with an eye for detail might find it before I make the official announcement) and learning Photoshop CS3. Oh the joy of that! (Said in a sarcastic tone of voice.) It was like entering an alien world where I had no idea how to speak the language or if there even was a language to be spoken.
The good news is that I’ve discovered the Rosetta Stone of Photoshop (aka a good tutorial). I finally know where the tools are hidden, and have a slight grasp on the concept of layers. I have a long way to go, though, and that’s taking up huge chunks of what spare time I can find.
In other words, I’ll be back with Part 2 of Torrey Pines as soon as I can get it all together. In the meantime, I might put up a photo or two of the garden.
