San Diego Getaway Part 1: Torrey Pines and Mount Soledad

On Friday July 20, 2013, We left Orange County around 7 p.m. and arrived San Diego at 10:00 p.m via Sta. Ana Freeway. San Diego is a major city in California on the coast of Pacific Ocean in Southern California, approximately 190 km of South Los Angeles and adjacent to the border with Mexico.

We got up early morning for the Torrey Pines visit on the beach. Torrey Pines is said to be a place for wealthy people. We spent walking on the beach and shortly we went to the park at the top to see the ocean view.

On the other hand, Mount Soledad Veterans Memorial in La Jolla is just a few minute drive from Torrey Pines. The memorial wall serves as a tribute honoring veterans who fought for the country. The Mount Soledad cross is a 29-foot tall cross that was erected in 1954.
