15 miles from here. had our lunch on the beach in a cove between the rocks there were a few in bathing but it looked cold to me but the air was nice and warm. we then started for Torrey Pines about. 8 miles farther in the road to Las - Angeles it was all up grade with sharp turns all the way up. the scenery was fine.. rough & hilly with a snow covered mountain in the distance. saw the Torrey pines. they only grow in one other place somewhere on an island. they were nothing to look at. only scrubs {shrubs?} along side our pines the needles were longer than on ours, and are in bunches of fine needles together. They have a big round cone, which has nuts in which are good to eat. We came back by Mission Beach and Ocean Beach and stayed at Claytons for tea. drove over 60 miles in all.

Sunday Jan 9th. Drove over to the park again. Madge
