Friday Shoot Out: My town is known for - the beach

Sorry I'm late with the FSO post! Been vacationing here in my growing-up town of San Diego. So what is SD famous for? The zoo. The sun. The harbor and its nuclear submarines.
Oh, and Torrey Pines. Torrey Pines grow only here, at Torrey Pines State Beach, and couple of other spots.

The park's pines today have been sadly diminished by fire and pollution, though the sandstone cliffs are still spectacular and the beach is one of the prettiest I know.





Meet up with the rest of the Friday My Town Shootout group here.

I'm glad to be a little late checking out FSO posts; otherwise I may have missed your beautiful shots of the San Diego beaches and bluffs. Those sandstone cliffs look like gorgeous sculptures.

Nice choice for the shootout. I didn't know about the Torrey pines. Thanks for the education, and the nice pics.

Hammer pointed me in your direction. I live in upper northern California about an hour and a half below the Oregon border in Redding. I've been to San Diego many times. My husband's favorite things about Torrey Pines is the golf courses:D

gadsooks - that sand dune sculpute is beautiful. Nature's art.
I think all beaches are wonderful - well maybe not Galveston beach in Texas - when you walk on it you get globs of old oil stuck to the bottom of your feet - maybe they have cleaned it up. your post was great.

There is great beauty in the sensual curves of the sandstone cliffs.

San Diego is certainly a beautiful place.

I'm so glad I came back for a second look - I love sandstone cliffs! Nature's art work at its best! Shame about the pine trees though!
