Sea Fig - Torrey Pines State Beach

This is a seafig (Carpobrotus chilenses) overhanging the cliff at Torrey Pines State Beach. Torrey Pines is my favorite beach - you can walk for miles and it's not to0 crowded. The cliffs are masterpieces and they seem to change every time I visit which is often.





I could look at the cliffs all day. They change color throughout the day as the sun changes direction.







This is a shot of the hill at Torrey Pines which takes you into the reseve. It's a hot spot for bike riders.

On this particular November day, myself, along with 5000 others walked the Breast Cancer - 3day. This was our first big hill which I had trained on for months. We walked over 60 miles in 3 days!

We also have sea figs all along the coast, they look great covering dunes and cliffs.

I love this plant! Back at home, in southern Tuscany, this plants grew on the sandy beach as well! I didn't know how they were called, thankyou!

I'm actually thinking really hard about doing the 2 day Avon Breast Cancer walk in May.

What a great accomplishment!!
