Out and About: North San Diego County

Some pictures from my adventures around North San Diego County (and not so north San Diego County):

Sunset, as viewed from our balcony.

Pretty color at the Oceanside pier.

The water looks far less inviting in Carlsbad
during the middle of June Gloom.

Tasty treats at one of my favorite coffee
shops, Banana Dang! in Oceanside.

This palm tree at Batiquitos Lagoon in Carlsbad hasn't had
its growth spurt yet.

Ceiling and light fixture at Miguel's in Carlsbad.

Little archway at Leo Carrillo Ranch in Carlsbad.

Old timey windmill at Leo Carrillo Ranch.

The Leo Carrillo brand.

Entrance of Balboa Park in San Diego.

Reflecting pool at Balboa Park. Now
the background photo on my phone.

Roses at Balboa Park. Now the lock screen
photo on my phone.

Beautiful colors in the botanical garden at Balboa Park.

Hiking Buena Vista Park in Vista.

Buena vista at Buena Vista Park.

We liked this sign at the Torrey Pines Gliderport.

Harris's hawks awaiting our falconry lesson at Torrey Pines State
Park in La Jolla. Lesson conducted by Sky Falconry.

Hope you enjoyed this taste of what I've been up to. I know I have!

I loved seeing all your pics and learning about your San Diego adventures. The falconry lessons sound incredible! I must hear more. ❤

Wait, what? Where are the pictures of the falconry lessons?

I'd also never seen a pre-growth-spurt palm tree before. Thanks!

Great pictures!

Thanks! Honestly, there aren't a ton of pictures from the falconry lesson. You saw the best ones on my FB. We all had to wear a huge glove on one hand (that occasionally had animal guts/brains on it) and had been warned to keep said gloves away from our faces, so mostly my phone stayed tucked away. (Also, I don't like to put pictures of me/Dan/people I know on my blog. Just a personal preference.)
