Holy Bat Ray! A Memorable Day at Torrey Pines State Beach

You never know what interesting treasures you will find at Torrey Pines State Beach…

We live locally and it’s one of my absolute favorite places to visit for a walk or casual stroll along the shore, or an energetic hike from up above at Torrey Pines State Reserve. Whether I am with friends, family or am solo, I love the nature, the sights and sounds of the waves crashing, the gorgeous rock formations, glimpses of sea life and birds such as osprey and peregrine falcons and cormorants. photo opportunities, etc.

But today it was extremely special!

I was walking towards a crowd of people watching a guy fishing.

Pretty routine, right?

NOPE, not today.

This guy (David Fillmore) had a BIG something or other on his fishing line. We asked him how long he had been holding whatever the ‘catch’ was…he said about a half hour…then he told us it was probably a bat ray.

Check out the strength of that tug!

So we waited and waited until all of a sudden, we saw the bat ray in view. Soon it was on the  beach for all to see.

CHECK IT OUT and watch until the end!

Afterwards we cheered!

 

Success!
