In before the end of June . . . for the Trek Along With Me knitalong I trekked with my Trekking socks. (That was the idea, wasn't it?)
As part of MyNewCaliforniaLifestyle, I went on my first-ever beach hike (with sock):
Other than the fabulous view, the good hiking, the blessedly cool breeze and cloud cover (seriously - too much sun can get to you), the best part was not getting laughed at when I asked my hiking companion to take this picture:
. . . You never know about people you haven't known very long. You may notice that I was barefoot for part of this, but it was still a real hike. We walked about 5 miles from the beach up into the cliffs of Torrey Pines State Reserve. We took our shoes off to wade through the incoming tide (parts of this route are "swim only" during high tide, but we made it with only a little bit of water on our shorts), and then put them back on to avoid the pine needles.
