It was a cool, overcast day with lots of "air" so he insisted we make the inquiry after a few short minutes looking around the golf course at Torrey Pines. The cliffs are really high here and we watched others glide about.
|Torrey Pines Golf Course. Along the Pacific Ocean cliffs.|
|This is the nude beach area. |
Really too far down for a good look without binoculars.
|Yes, it was really high and steep.|
|Hey, this does look easy. |
All you do is ride.
|Parasailers sometimes land on the beach below and then have to pack up the sail and haul it back up. |
Really good parasailers land on the cliffs from where they took off...

|This guy makes it look easy enough.|
|He's decided to take the leap. |

|Flying with pelicans!|
I finally pulled "the bird" off the cliffs and we continued our ride north along historic US Highway 101 all the way through Cardiff By The Sea to the southern edge of the US Marine Corp's Camp Pendleton. Cardiff wasn't much as a town, but the sign was colorful and "photoworthy" --
|Great old building across the street from the pizza parlor where we ate at Carlsbad.|
|We'd driven quite some distance. |
Time to return to San Diego at the end of the day.
