When we decided to take a hike it was primarily to stretch legs and move about after two days sitting in conference rooms at tables on straight back chairs. Off we went on a paved path with no idea or concern about where the path led. It led to a putting green. End of that walk. Off we went on the next walk headed north on yet another seeming sidewalk past a golf course. That sidewalk also stopped. Of course, they generally do stop eventually. Where that sidewalk stopped, though, was an old highway which then turned into a nature reserve with hiking paths all of which looked more difficult than we could manage. Here's the thing. We never know what we can manage until we give it a try.
The cliffs above La Jolla. That's where the rock lives.
Now, I'm pretty sure the rock has a right eye but, of course, it couldn't be seen.
So here's what we learned from this hike.
We are tougher and in better shape than we thought. That's the first thing. If you hesitating on doing something, stop hesitating and just do it.
The second thing we learned is that storms aren't the only natural occurrences with an eye or two.
